I've had this N. khasiana for a while now. It has always been a good grower, but lately it's been acting a little... weird.
First, it started making smaller leaves with less space between the internodes, but the pitcher size didn't decrease:
I assumed this was the result of high light (it...
I was using the DSLR on the Byblis so took some pics of the Nep pitchers as well. Disclaimer: The cool-growing plants are quite new so some of the pitchers came with the shipment...not that I can grow intermediate/highland Neps so well here in HOT Singapore. :cool:
N. spectabilis x hamata...
Up for auction is a couple feet off the top of this N. khasiana x viking*. I received it a couple years ago from another grower, and it's proceeded to take over my livingroom. I've gotten rid of numerous basals, but it's time for the top of it to get the chop. It's the one taking over the...
I figured I'd start a photo thread.
First up, Nepenthes tobaica x (sanguinea x khasiana)
Nepenthes reinwardtiana green
When I first got this plant it wasn't vining and was only a few inches tall. It has gone on to vine for me during this winter, and produce all of it's pitchers in highlands...
Hey everyone, I have a Nepenthes x briggsiana var. 'Peter D'Amato'
The plant is an established rooted cutting taking from growth that was producing upper pitchers. When the plant arrived it had one 6-8" upper pitcher on it. The plant is about a foot or so in diameter and roughly as talll.
I finally got around to putting organizing a bit and putting together a trade list. Please take a look and EMAIL (ellisonk001 at Hawaii dot rr dot com) me if you would like to work out a swap. USA only.
I am primarily interested in nepenthes, but will consider all reasonable offers.
As I was watering the plants this morning, I realized that I've only ever shared photos when I needed an ID or a diagnosis. So, I thought I may as well share with you a few of my plants. Please excuse the poor lighting; it's a rainy, dreary day in New Haven.
First up, a few of the nepenthes...
Looking for some small, either seed grown or rooted well-established cuttings, of nepenthes.
In particular I am looking for N. khasiana, N. miranda, N. tobaica, N. reinwardtiana, N. copelandii, or really just about any other true to species nepenthes.
PM me and we can see what we can do.
For your consideration, N. khasiana x viking
Here's a pic of the parent plant of a lower pitcher (red) and upper (green) side by side -

Natural light levels
Bright light all day without direct sunlight on plants.
All of my Neps are in natural light so I took readings using a light meter. The first reading was taken at 10am and by 4pm, the light level has gone up by at least 2000 lux at the shadiest spot and at the...
Nepenthes burbidgea x platychila
Nepenthes ventricosa x ephippiata
Both plants are over 12" across and are very fast and robust growers.
I'm looking for:
alata - Surigao
albomarginata - Penang
argentii - SG
argentii - BCP Clones
So, I have a very healthy and vigorous khasiana in a very small greenhouse in my tiny terrace garden.
It has a rather large vine on it with several rather rapidly growing basal shoots. The problem is, the vine is juuuust on the verge of pressing into the top of the greenhouse.
My reading tells...
