    Question on various species Pot Dimensions

    Hi all, I was active on these forums a long time ago but I just recently rejoined. I had a few questions for you about pot sizes for certain plants. I know that VFTs need a pot depth of 6in+ because their roots grow straight down but I also want to find out the depths/dimensions of pots needed...

    What kind of damage is this and how do I fix it?

    A little over 2 weeks ago I purchased a mystery nep (I suspect N. x ventrata). Keep in mind I have never attempted growing a nep in a window before, but I got out the light meter and found the best location for it and crossed my fingers. Things are not going so well. About a week in the older...

    Variation in HL and LL tendril lengths?

    I want to propose a question with some pics for comparison. All of these leaves are at close to the same point in development. You will note that 2 have significantly longer tendrils. Is the tendril length before the leaf unfurls, in any way indicative of HL or LL genetics? Would love to hear...

    How to Ship REALLY Big Plants?

    I'm slowly selling my entire plant collection and I have like... a lot of plants that are massive vines. Is it even plausible to ship a 3ft vine? If so, how can it be done and how much does it usually cost to ship such a large, over-sized package? Obviously I'm not talking like a ventrata the...

    How do you decide which Nepenthes to get?

    I have Ventrata, and sibuyanensis I've spent about one week looking into which ones to get next. I def only want highland to intermediate. I also don't care to pay too much for them, maximum price for each plant is $30. So now what? Is it just me or do the younger plants look different...

    Hello, everyone. I haven't been posting much because I haven't really grown many CPs the last few years. I have one Nepenthes now on my porch, a decently size ventrata.
