    Jamban Hybrids

    Is there any particular reason that Jamban hasn't been used in many hybrid crosses? I've seen hybrids with related species like N. dubia but not many made with larger or more extravagant species.

    New Growth Points or Something Else

Has anyone been able to track this...

    Nepenthes hamata issues...

    Hello all, Long time lurker here. I had a few questions about one of my plants that I thought some of you may be able to help with. I have had this N. hamata for almost a year. When I received it, it was quite small and likely still relatively fresh from tissue culture. With high humidity and...
