    Purple Moss

    Recently some of my sphagnum moss has started turning bright purple blue and violet. Anyone else have moss like this? I grow under a combo of LEDs and T5 perhaps its a result of that. however this setup is almost 2 years old now and this is the first time I've seen this moss.

    Root Comparison: N. truncata "HL red" vs. N. robcantleyi

    Today I had to repot two neps that had out grown their little seedling pot, and being as these species seemed to be so closely related I thought it might be of interest to do a root comparison set of photos for anyone interested. N. robcantleyi close up N. truncata "HL red" close...

    how do the little guys do it?

    I was wondering those of you that have seen nepenthes in situ, how are the seedlings germinating and reaching maturity in the wild do you think? The reason I ask is because it seems I have to be quite diligent with my tiny seedlings and about every two or three weeks carefully remove any of the...

    Was given some "Feed Me! Mist"

    Hey CP'ers, I was given a bottle of "Feed Me! Mist" orchid food spray by an orchid growing friend. She knows I don't grow orchids but knows I've used orchid ferts in the past so she prompted me to give it a try. Has anyone else tried this on their Neps? I looked it up and I'm getting the...

    My Cephalotus collection

    I have a small collection of cephalotus. The problem is though I tend to pay more attention to my nepenthes and so my ceph s get neglected. They seem to be doing ok but I have decided to take better care of them starting now. Usually I don't check them or water them for weeks at a time, but they...

    Nepenthes attenboroughii root system

    I had to repot one of my N. attenboroughii seedlings because the substrate was rotted and compacted so I thought some fresh shoes for its feet would do some good. Thought I'd snap some pics of its roots since I don't recall seeing little root pics like this. thanks, Jess

    Please help with diagnosis and treatment

    Hello TF'ers, I'm having an issue with two of my nepenthes. One is a hybrid of N. (ventricosa x sibuyanensis) x burkei and the other is a nice seed grown N. burbidgeae. The hybrid nep has been going down hill for the last month or so, and at first I thought perhaps I over fertilized it because...

    quick shots of the HL grow chamber

    I was reorganizing my chamber yesterday and snapped a few pics with my cell and thought I'd post them. Keep in mind all my plants are 90% SG seedlings and have only been in this chamber about 2.5-3 months at the most. I mostly just wanted to post some pics of the chamber itself and get some...

    Anyone using lava sand instead of silica sand?

    A friend who grows bonsai gave me a small bag of red lava sand. Its basically like crushed up lava rocks like one would use in a nep mix. Has anyone tried using this instead of silica sand or in combination with, for their ceph mix?

    Opinons wanted Re: ventricosa

    I'd like to get your guys opinions on ventricosa. I know this nep is usually thought of as boring and a common "beginner" house plant of the nep community sometimes, however I have always really found them quite beautiful and interesting. Since I've been out of the CP world for some time until...
