    Elegant pitchers...

    Thought I'd drop by and share a photo or two of some beautiful pitchers to y'all. Yes, we all want a toothy peristome nep. Yes, we'd like a candy striped peristome too. Or maybe, a wine shaped pitcher with astonishing colouration. But, I sometimes find simplicity to be the most beautiful trait...

    Music

    So I was wondering, how many of the TF guys play any type of musical instrument SERIOUSLY (cuz most of you guys play guitar I bet). What type of music do you guys prefer? For me, I'm the old school type, I only listen to classical music nowadays and play them on the piano, though I do enjoy...

    Crossing my fingers!

    I am really hoping that this is the candy stripe highland veitchii Bario! When I received this plant, it had no pitchers and the seller had no pictures of it. And this is the first pitcher for me after nearly 5 months of waiting! Yippee! :banana2:

    Thrips/Scales or....

    Recently, I had four nepenthes down with pests. Poor stenophylla and hamata x platy had mites while truncata x (ventri x aristo) got downed with a huge mealybug attack (the whole rootball was literally covered with white fuzzy guys :0o:). Now, I've got N. truncata x spectabilis EP making me...

    An innovation...

    So today I got my D. binata var multifida, and I decided to round up all the non-Nepenthes plants in my collection to put them together. My mom's been bombarding me constantly about simply dumping VFT pots and droseras randomly all around her precious garden :lol: well FEAR NO MORE, MOM! Look...

    ID-ing orchids (and some basic Q&A)

    So I have been slowly falling in love with the orchid hobby (and so is my mom!). I am however, exceptionally bewildered by orchid ID-ing. I've only been glancing through the books and soaking up some names, but I dont' seem recognize some of them ??? Also, any other ways to get them to flower...

    CP items 'trustworthiness' on eBay?

    Ok first! I've never bought anything from eBay before :-)) (i know, right?!) And straight to the point, I could never get myself motivated or encouraged to get any plants from eBay. Especially seeds. I always see many different types of seeds from almost all the species of CPs listed on eBay...

    4zeplant nursery in Malaysia

    Exams have just ended for me so I took the chance to visit my 'wholesale-distributor-for-BE-EP-nepenthes/private-nepenthes-grower/retailer-for-nepenthes' friend, Fauzi. He probably owns the largest collection of nepenthes in Malaysia (he has a nursery for god's sake! :-D) and I must say the...

    Wistuba's clipeata

    Hello everyone, I'm planning to get a nepenthes clipeata from wistuba. The problem is I don't know which one to choose from! There's clone 2, 3, and U. I'm wondering which one is more vigorous and has the gender for all clones been confirmed? I'm pretty sure that 2 and 3 are males but I haven't...

    Nepenthes art

    Out of sheer boredom, I drew and sketched two pictures of neps using only a pencil in school today. Took around 15-20 minutes per picture. Nepenthes edwardsiana. I don't think I got the proportion right and I have forgotten how the lid was :-)) Nepenthes veitchii. I think I got the stripes a...

    Drosophyllum Seeds wanted

    Hello everyone! I'm thinking of trying to grow drosophyllum lusitanicum from seeds. I was wondering whether any members here happen to have some. If not, most probably I will have to get the seeds from CP websites like CZPlants......I'm just not very sure how old their stock of drosophyllum...

    Dormancy in the tropics

    Perhaps one of the most annoying and frustrating thing for a grower like me staying riiiiight at the equator line of the earth's circumference is dormancy of CPs. It's FRUSTRATING to try growing sarras for a year or two and then they just shrink and....usually die. I've heard of fridge dormancy...

    Cephalotus Follicularis from YG

    AT LAST, I got my ceph. I've grown this species once before, but I killed it after leaving it in it's water tray for a long long time.....:( Now though, I'm quite happy with this plant that I bought. Came at a nice size for RM60 (thats 20 USD to you folks out there). I don't expect it to grow...

    A few neps...

    Hi guys, I know most of you would wanna see my neps. Well, most of my nepenthes are really small (5cm-ish) so I only have a few that have matured (or close enough) pitchers to actually show off. Here are a few pics that were taken within the past 2 months. Hope you'll enjoy them though: N...

    Hello, CP-ers!

    HI EVERYONE, my name is Edward and I'm from Malaysia! Have been growing CP's especially neps for four years, but last year, most of my CP's died due to my lack of time (and responsibility :-(). I recently returned back to growing CP's at the beginning of this year. I hope to learn much from...
