    Nepenthes wilting

    A few days ago, I noticed that one of my nepenthes spectabilis x singalana was wilting. To be more exact, the lid of the pitcher was wilting. In addition, it kinda stopped growing. A month ago, it just did just fine because it grew a new pitcher but this month, it just stopped. However, my other...

    spectabilis x jacquelineae photos

    I was wondering if anyone is growing this particular hybrid? I haven't been able to find any pictures so far except for BEs seedling pic from the catalog. Seems like it should be a promising hybrid.

    N. Spectabilis x Aristolochioides Offshoot question - First experience!

    Hey Everyone! First off, I just wanted to thank you so much for your advice on my last post. Got a larger terrarium, quad T30 3ft lights, and got the temp and humidity right and it perked and colored up in just two weeks. And every single leaf is producing a solid looking pitcher. Anyways, now...

    N. spectabilis x singalana

    I don't believe there has been a thread made about this cross yet, if there has, excuse me. Anyway my plant just made its first pitcher in my care and I must say that I absolutely am blown away already with the plant, even at such a young age. I can't be the only one growing this one! Let's...

    What might be wrong with my Nepenthes | Soft tip, yellowing/blackening lower leaves

    N. Lowii x (Spectabilis x Northiana)

    Anyone growing this one? Photos would be great, I think it's going to be a show stopper, kicking myself for only getting a single clone???

    A glimmer of hope for UnstuckinTime's plants

    If you love Nepenthes as much as I do... ....the following may be hard to see. So this summer was hot, and I lived in a place without AC. Needless to say, my highland Nepenthes were not happy with that. But then I moved, and also upgraded from a fishtank with lights set up to a...

    I need a little Nepenthes help

    I have two Nepenthes that I'm not sure if they're ok or not and would appreciate some advice/thoughts. The first one is N. spectabilis. I'm not sure if I even need to worry about this one since the newer leaves are doing good. My concern is the older leaves seem to die really fast and turn...

    Hybrid vigor and temperature tolerance

    I'm getting back into growing Nepenthes after taking a break for the better part of the decade. I'll be ordering my plants later in the week, and I've noticed that there is a much larger range of hybrids available, especially hybrids between highland species that were rare in cultivation until...

    University Greenhouse Conditions

    I was just given some bench space in the horticulture club greenhouse at my university. I live in a tiny apartment, so I'm excited to finally have room to grow Nepenthes. Light and humidity seem perfect, but according to the greenhouse complex manager, the hort club greenhouse is heated to a...

    Growth Tips Dying?

    I noticed yesterday that the growth tip on my N. lowii x campanulata was turning black. After freaking out, I hoped for the best -- at least I could resort to the basal, right? Just five minuted ago I found the basal's growth tip turning black! I know the person I got it from is gonna see this...
