Weather here has been kinda blah too so finally caught up on getting alot more pics on the website. Figured I would link some of the nicer ones!
N. ventricosa x aristolochioides
N. jacquelineae x izumiae
Posted a picture of a red one a while back. Here is a real dark one. Still...
All my Neps are growing just great except the ventricosa. There is a "?" on the nametag, so I'm wondering just what it might be. So I need your help on this! Here's the other Neps that I'm growing. All grow in the same terrarium.
clipeata x reinwardtiana
gracilis var. nigrapurpurea...
I won two cuttings worth of N. reinwardtiana vine at the BACPS meeting's raffle about five months ago. I read that this species is easy to root, and indeed, both cuttings rooted, and have now pitchered. Here's the better one, and I'm very please for a first pitcher size! It does have the...
OK, I ended up with two N. x Ile de Frances (do we have to say Ile de Freedom now?), and one must make way for a new nepenthes. I'm looking for a nep only, and here are a couple I'm looking for, but will probably take any interesting intermediate or highland I don't already have:
Hi guys I have this N. reinwardtiana x macrovulgaris in a four inch pot right now and its had three pitchers two of which are old and the tops are starting to go bad (you know like an old pitcher does) it has several tendrils that are forming. The leaves are about 4 inches. I'm looking to trade...
Very exciting day as I got a few new additions in the mail.
This order was all about getting my hands on a N. hamata, but while I was at it I had a N. khasiana and N. reinwardtiana thrown in as they were cheap and I not have them.
As you can see they are quite small but I'm wrapped!
Been poking around my neps lately (that's different from when?), and I'm getting a bunch of basal shoots. My fusca (old news), my reinwardtiana (sp?), and my merrilliana are all producing basal shoots! The merrilliana really suprised me. BONUS!
Now the question is....Do I let them grow on the...
I have a 1 maybe 3 N. rajah's. For trade I'm looking for other Nepenthes not on my grow list. I will send you a photo if very interested.
My grow list
N. alata "boschiana mimic"
N. alata lowland mo
N. albomarginata (Penang) Red, clone E
N. albomarginata "spotted”
...in Singapore. If anyone won't mind sending some leaves over, I have some CPs which I may be able to gave to thank the donor (if he/she like anything I have that is...my collection is small).
Thanks in advance.
Here's my grow list:
alata (2 lowlands, 1...
Okay, I have 1 S. purpurea ssp. venosa var. montana available for trade to anyone in the USA. I'm looking for the following 2 species as a trade, but am not limited to them. If you have anything spiffy to offer, I'm all ears.
D. capensis "all red" and U. humboldtii
Here's my current...
Here's a picture I took this morning of its newest pitcher. The little hybrid seems to be doing well. OK, its no big deal but since I'm pretty new to Nepenthes this is somewhat exciting. Might as well ask a question while I'm posting to make this educational: what parentage does this...
Neps:N. amp green, bellii, campanulata, N. distillatoria, N. viellardii, N. reinwardtiana,
N ventricosa 'ReD', N. Jacquelineae, N hamata, n villosa
Ultrics: Gibba, Longfolia, Livida, Sandersonii, Sandersonii Blue (basically any aquatic or terristial)
Any types of VFT
These are the plants I am...
I got up today and saw a white express mail box outside my door. Opening it up, lo' and behold it's part of my "on hold" order from Wistuba! I thought I wasn't getting anything until Spring '04!
N. ampullaria (Tayeve Giant Form)
Here are some pics of a cheap experiment I made the past few days. I had a Exoterra Fogger, spare 5.5 gallon tank, and a nice fan at my disposal, so why not try something new?? I spent a few $ at Lowe's getting PVC pipe, metal brackets, and nylon screws, etc to make it all...
Well, guess what? My ventrata basal shoots are already big enough for some cutting and I'm gonna make one soon. So if your interested, here's my wanted list:
1. n. x hookeriana
2. n. campanulata
3. n. ampullaria red
4. n. x dashy koto
5. n. albomarginata
6. n. northiana
7. n. x asahi
here are the Nepenthes I grow guess which plant I would say is the hardest/slowest growing.
N. albomarginata "spotted”
N. ampullaria "green"
N. gracilis "typical"
N. gracilis “nigrapurpurea”*
expand our collections! Otherwise, at least we know who to ask about what.
My CP list:
alata (2 lowlands, 1 highland - just took 2 cuttings)
gracilis (2 types - one grows like weed but pitchers are small, good for newbies, another deep maroon type on the way)...
here are the photos (I hope)
N. spathulata x spectabilis
N. x coccinea
tell me what you think
more to come
Where to start??
I guess I should start with letting you know how difficult it is just to make this posting. I'm on a computer that has the full 16 colours and what I'm sure is an old 486 processor. The connection is sooo bad, I waited about 3 mins for this page to download and when it...
After MANY delays, yesterday I finally bought my air ticket to Padang in Sumatra. I’ll be going near the end of June and staying for about 2 weeks. I’ll arrange for a hire car to be waiting for me at the airport so I can cut loose as soon as I arrive.
I’ve just been sitting here on the floor...
