    Help with N. Ventrata - new growth turning yellow

    I am hoping someone can help identify what the problem with my Nepenthes Ventrata is. A lot of the leaves are turning yellow, including some of the newer growth. As a bit of a background, I have had the plant for a little over a year. The plant sits in a south window, since there is a building...

    My house Nep (N. x ventrata)

    I've never kept a CP as a house plant. I mean, I had a plant rack that was within my living space when I first started But never had a CP as a house plant. Some may remember this thread where I mentioned my wife brought a Nep home to me. I figured what the heck, may as well have it inside...

    Pinguicula Caerulea care

    Hello, yesterday I picked up a pinguicula Caerulea, it's my first ping and I could really use some tips to keep it alive. I know it's a warm temperate species, and that I need to use distilled, RO, or rain water only. I'm in zone 9b on the west coast and I'm not sure if it needs to be grown...

    My N. Ventricosa's tendrils dry out but my N. Alata does not.

    So I have 2 pitcher plants in a single pot. N.Alata Sprouted around July(Totally accidental, thought this was just a new stem since my ventrata is in a bending position ever since I got it last May). As you can see, my N. Alata(I assume it is alata since it has hairs on the pitcher) has already...

    Where do you get your Nepenthes from?

    Hey guys, I recently fell in love with Nepenthes, and decided that I wanted to try growing some. Unfortunately, I've been having very little luck finding any. I saw people posting online that they bought theirs at Home Depot and Lowes. I wasn't able to find any at Home Depot, and didn't want to...

    Unexpected Nepenthes Germination

    I don't know what got into my head that day, but I decided to order a mix some Nepenthes seeds from eBay in January. I received them about 3 weeks later. When I got them, I knew there was no way they could still be viable. I sowed them anyway. I sowed almost all of the seeds on chopped LFS and...

    Looking for Nep pollen

    I have a female ventrata with 6+ flower spikes currently. I have a bit of truncata pollen I will use, but am looking for other matches. I know it may not be an overly desirable hybrid choice, but if you have pollen going to waste let me know. 50/50 on any seed. Thanks!
