I have recently started a mini nepenthes collection in a small greenhouse I have converted to house tropical plants.
This thread will just be a running album of some hand-picked photos from my Flickr page.
I am really interested to see if you are growing some of the same species...
I wanted to share photos of a few of my plants.

About a year or more ago I found the opportunity to finally acquire the Nepenthe species I've wanted since I was younger, N. Lowii. I've always heard about how slow growing Lowii can be but two of them have really been pumping out bigger and bigger leaves! I found that they loooove fluorescent...
Giving away this small/medium nepenthes lowii. This is a TC clone from Native Exotics which has proven to be very vigorous. It has doubled in size in my care in only a few months, which is especially surprising since it experienced ultralowland conditions all summer long. I am sure that a...
please check my long wish list. I look for many other plants if you have any interesting species please let me know. Seeds and plants welcome!

I've been experimenting with growing Nepenthes hydroponically since March 2015, so for about a year and a half now. I'd like to share my results in this thread, and then give some details about my method. Thanks to TF member knuckles for sharing with me his experiences growing Nepenthes...
Or, what I like to respond when people ask, "How was your vacation?"
These plants were kept in my highland terrarium for 2 weeks while I was away. Everything is automated except for watering - which I took care of before leaving - and nighttime cooling, which I do using ice packs. The night...
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...

I've been growing this odd hybrid and I was wondering who else is? I'd love to see what everyones looks like. Mine is still small but has put on some good size in the last few months.
That largest pitcher is about 4-5". Has anyone observed uppers on this plant yet?
I recently found out about the nepenthes hybrid 'Peter D'amato' and was wondering how difficult it is to care for. I know that it's a cross between lowii and ventricosa and thought that it's ventricosa genes might mean that it's fairly easy to care for. Anyone who grows this hybrid...
Hi, I'm looking for some "lowland" nepenthes plants, seedlings, or fully rooted cuttings. I'm mainly interested in ampullaria's, but will consider any lowlanders. I can send pictures of my the plants upon request.
What I'm looking for:
N. Ampullaria (really any, but green form)...
I am looking for a Lepanthes telipogoniflora. I have some nepenthes for trade.
These are rooting cuttings/ basals
N. lowii x campanulata
N. ventricosa x aristo
N. thorellii x aristo
N. ventricosa x spectabilis
N. spathulata x hamata
Pm me for photo and offers.
I've recently become interested in N. Lowii, they seem like they would not like my climate. I'm in Ohio and the average summer high is 80-90 with a drop to the mid 70's at night. Are there any Lowii hybrids that would be happy in my climate?
