    Why is it that stuff the heart really wants is the stuff that's hardest. lol

    Also, I suspect the fraud happens in more rare species. So far, the seed grown nepenthes I have where I can make out enough that the seed was labeled right is a rafflesiana. Not a lot of incentive to...

    All I mean to say is that as long as I am getting seeds that look about right for the species and they are germinating, at least for now, it is good enough for me. I also admitted that once I have...

    Turned out it wasn't the geckos doing damage, but probably a snail. I saw a tiny one on a night raid after the covered seedlings also seemed to decrease in numbers. Immediate measures taken - I found...

    TBH for me, an "aristolochioides" seed growing like that would still be a win. It growing at all to the point of making nice pitchers would be a win. I think there is a far more thriving community in...

    For plants that come potted, I don't repot them till they start growing again in my conditions. Logic being "If they got to a selling stage in whatever they are growing in, it is fine, even if it...

    oh god.... one munch from a caterpillar or snail and there will be nothing left to show for months of growth. lol.

    Ironically, they germinated in record time. 12 days and 14 days. I was so...

    How slow is N. macrophylla?

    I had two N. macrophylla germinate about 2 months ago (more are germinating now, but barely exiting seedcoats yet - not even daring to think of when their next steps will be).

    For a long time they...

    Thrips are bad news. I find that some nepenthes succumb to them worse than others. I don't grow hamata, so I don't know if it is among the susceptible, but your photo looks like they might be. I keep...

    I find plants growing in bright light to have smaller leaves and bigger pitchers than those grown in low light. I use this to get some green mass on seedlings fast before moving them to brighter...

    I am not posting a lot of photos yet, because the plants are small - there aren't any showy pics as such. They are doing well, putting out new leaves, acclimatizing to conditions they weren't made...

  16. Anyone know who 'exceptional_plants' seller is on ebay?

    I purchased some plants from them (due to arrive any time). They ship from Poland. More importantly for me, ship worldwide.

    What made me ask was that the seller has almost all listings as "seed...

    For now, I've put them at some distance from any plant catching insects that the geckos could want and put cheap plastic colander-like baskets covering them. This will block some light to the...

  20. How to protect nepenthes seedlings from geckos?

    I've seen a lot of newly germinated seedlings look.... bad, a few pots that seemed to move/topple, etc. Then when I lost my sole (so far) kinnabaluensis seedling... I started conducting random raids...

  22. Whether to fill water in the pitchers of Saracenia "maroon purpurea hybrid with flava

    I will soon be receiving a Sarracenia "maroon". I have read that sarracenias with tall pitchers have dry pitchers that should not be filled or they will topple over. And that those lying close to the...
