    Anybody know anything about Nepenthes pitopangii?

    This species is very new in cultivation, so there isn't much information I've been able to find about it. It seems to be considered an intermediate grower in most places, but the type specimen was found at 1800m, and the second population at 1400m, so it seems like it could be a...

    Nepenthes cuttings

    1. I have about a dozen or so cuttings of my Nepenthes "graciliflora" (the "smooth alata") available for trade. This is a very easy and vigorous species that can grow as a lowlander and highlander, although it seems to be pretty scarce in the trade right now. I have unrooted 2- and 4-node...

    My neps

    I'm sorry for the incredible bad images, my hobby isn't really photography. I just wanted to post pictures of my neps, instead of always asking everyone to show of theirs, thought i could grab my chance as I was watering. Also, I guess I'll use this thread to update on my plants as well as the...

    Nepenthes Grab Bag (Intermediate)

    I'll be honest...these plants are suffering under my care. I just don't want them around anymore, and that has led to me forgetting to water them, etc. They look pretty pitiful, but as far as I can tell, they're still alive. This will be a mish-mash of various hybrids (mostly ventricosa...

    N. copelandii 'Apo' in lowland conditions

    Hi all, Quite by surprise I received a n. copelandii 'Apo' today in the mail. Reading about it, I understand it's a highland plant, or maybe intermediate. BE identifies it as highland, but easy to grow as a low lander. I'd be really excited about the free plant, except that I can only grow...

    Very Pale, veiny leaves on my Viking

    As i look through my greenhouse i have noticed that my Mirabilis var. Globosa is much paler than the rest of my plants. All the plants were moved into the greenhouse a few months ago and have adapted well. Although my "Viking" has grown by leaps and bounds, and is now begining to show signs of...

    *PAID* Nepenthes cecilae (Rareraven $35)

    Up for auction is one seed-grown N. cecilae. It is roughly 4 inches in diameter and this species appears to grow rather quickly and is not too picky about temps. I have found that it can be grown in the intermediate to highland range. This species produces deep rich maroon and black lower...

    Do I take the plunge?

    Hey guys, I've grown a lot of different temperate CPs over the years with much success, but haven't really gotten into nepenthes besides by my 6 year old ventrata. I'm thinking if venturing into intermediate nepenthes, because I can get closest to their conditions. I have a grow rack that gets...

    Bulbophyllum odontopetalum

    Hi all, I can take a few divisions off my mother plant of this species if anyone is interested. It should do well in intermediate to highland Nep conditions and isn't a huge space eater. I'd be interested in swapping for CPs, tropical blueberries, orchids, interesting new terrarium material...

    Help With Nepenthes Plant

    I need some help here with my N. ventricosa x "Lady Pauline". I've had it for 2+ years now and it's just leggy and scrawny looking. It was sold to me from a reliable ebay seller as a seedling. I've been growing it under intermediate conditions mostly. I thought after the first year, it was in...

    S. Mardi Gras for trade

    I have an adult (single growth, produced pitchers 10-12" this past season) sized division of Sarracenia 'Mardi Gras' available for trade. Make an offer. Note: I am more interested in acquiring small/miniature tropical (intermediate temp) Orchids than other CPs at this time.

    N. maxima -Ok for windowsill?

    I've mostly run out of space in my grow tent and heated lowland tank. I've seen some very nice maxima varieties available recently (Gunung Lumut-the false Eymae, and wavy leaf). I was wondering if these would be hardy enough as windowsill plants. My apartment conditions are pretty bad for most...

    Highland or intermediate nepenthes.

    So I am in Minnesota and I found out that it's best to have lowland or intermediate nepenthes. No one told me this. Before I thought my conditions were more that of lowland but I was wrong. All I have for nepenthes are two ventracosa plants. Are there any highland or intermediate nepenthes...

    Nepenthes peltata (SG) Question

    I got this seed grown N. peltata last March and it has grown well in my intermediate area but I notice that the petiole is attached at the margin not under as peltate leaf means. Is it another misnomer plant or its it just too small yet?:confused: Thanks. Ramon:D N. peltata 03-15 10-15

    Help me with my first tuberous Drosera!

    Alright, so I am now the owner of one tuber each of D. menziesii and D. modesta (because Johnny is awesome!!!) that I have no idea how to properly care for, so the past few days have been spent heavily researching how to keep them alive. I was told that now is the prime time to start these guys...

    Black nepenthes

    Dear all, Please help me identify my nepenthes, which I got a few weeks back. I need to know at least what type is (lowland, intermediate, highland) to be able to grow it properly. Until now I know that I have mine on a east windowsill, where it grows slowly. I gave as a present one also to a...

    Hello TerraForums, Well after loosing all my plants in 2009 after having a heart attack and ending up staying in the hospital for 6 months I was to upset/depressed about loosing my rather extensive collection of Neps and Cephs to to try and start all over again at that time. Well not I'm...

    Nepenthes truncata X spectabilis

    This is a giveaway, not a trade: one vine tip cutting of Nepenthes truncata X spectabilis, a female by the way. This is an intermediate temperature grower, so you know. Please don't sign up for this is you cannot provide the right growing conditions for it. Also, be aware that this is a LARGE...

    Looking to trade N. vogelii x (spathulata x mira)

    I was sent this N. vogelii x (spatulata x mira) by accident, I'm hoping, and decided I'd rather trade it if someone is interested, than go through the hassle and expense of returning it. I can't grow highlanders here, so I'd prefer to trade it for a lowland Nepenthes, or even an intermediate...

    Moving give-away

    Pinguicula gigantea leaf pulls. The green ones on the left. Few months old now. The one up front is the largest, and the one the winner will receive. This clone has been vigorous in my conditions. Pinguicula 'Aphrodite' mature division. Flowers for me in late fall and early spring. Does...
