    Nepenthes seed germination setup?

    Do a few searches and see how people grow Nep seeds. there a re few guides here and elsewhere. For the most part, I think Nep seeds are easy given a few simple conditions and fresh seed. I read somewhere that Neps will germinate of damp paper towel - I havent tried it but it wouldnt surprise...

    Some coffee; some patience; some time . . .

    bigbella, this is said with the friendliest of intentions... I hate you :) I havent been following this at all, but those are beautiful plants - and that has nothing to do with their names look how thick the pitcher tendril is on the last eddie leaves. those will be much bigger pitchers too

    it grows up a bit :P It seems I dont take many pics of this plant, but these are some I found now basal this is as close to the whole plant as I could find Its the one in the pot on the right - terrible excuse for a 'whole plant' shot, I know

    6 year old 4 foot tall Ventrata. Looking for advice

    below the surface is much more important. but, if it looks like that throughout then it seems okay - the surface dries out between watering so it wont rot as fast as the rest. if youre not repoting it (perfectly acceptable :) ) then, id say toss some ferts into the pitchers and through the...

    6 year old 4 foot tall Ventrata. Looking for advice

    I just realised that there was a page 2 I didnt read - why is the belief that Neps dont feed through their roots still being propagated? its simply not true. yes, they dont rely on it when feeding through the pitchers but they are in no way incapable of it and root feeding is in no way a waste...

    6 year old 4 foot tall Ventrata. Looking for advice

    not repoted it in years? and you have sphag in there? the soil is quite possible a densely compacted block atm... Neps absolutely need happy roots to be happy. if it hasnt been pitchering and the the roots are not for nutrient absorption (which is not true) - then it hasnt been eating in years...

    a new nightmare... my luck just keeps getting better...not!

    I havent read everything here But, if it were mine and I thought there was a chance of survival, I would drop it in water for a day or two - completely submerged - and then pot it up and keep it humid. if I thought it could be saved...

    Nepenthes Upper Internode Buds

    to add to that, if the basal is on a mature/vining plant, it tends to mature and vine much faster than the mother plant did. so, you usually dont get too many lowers out of them on the plus side, they will also form big, mature lowers much faster than the mother did
