Several of the local Masonic lodges are collaborating and putting on a Halloween party with a haunted house. A couple years ago Dory's lodge was in charge of the HH, and I stole a corner and filled it with Sarrs and the super N. ventrata. This year it's another lodge doing it, but I got asked to...
N. ventricosa x talangensis (this was a while ago, just to give you an idea of height... Maybe abour 14" tall?)
I feel like it is being constricted at the roots. So I got this in December 2011 and it grew really well, has probably put out 10-15 leaves since then, all the same size, about 7"...

I'm thinking about trying my hand at growing N. Gothica. So far I've grown N. Miranda, N. Alata, and N. Ventrata without any problems. The Miranda took a while to adjust to lower humidity but they're all pitchering prodigiously these days. I just wanted to know what the care requirements for...
So, I was taking a look at my Nepenthes the other day (sold as alata but from what I can gather is probably a ventrata) and I was noticing that there were a ton of small pitchers being formed in the pot that were being crushed and twisted by already existing growth. I'm thinking of just trimming...
I've got 2 big vines and 1 smaller vine of N. x ventrata up for trade or giveaway. I would prefer trades, but given how common this plant is I will give these plants away if the person pays $7 shipping via paypal.
I would like to share with you my humble collection of CPs :) all my plants are basicly new in my collection (just started) and they are accomodating. Criticism is welcome :) tell me what to improve.
Yesterday I was fighting with fungus in terra, hope it will be ok now.
I recently donated a ventrata and a couple mexipings to the botany teacher at my local high school. This week was the first of term, he says the plants are a big hit. He has invited me to come speak to the class about cp. It's been a long time since I had to speak to an audience... any...
A little update on my indoor carnivorous plants. The outdoor ones arent doing so good. Enjoy! Sorry for my horrible camera
You guys might remember those neps I got at the local orchid shop. Tentac is doing good.
Cool deformed pitcher :p
Cant tell how the Burbidgeae X...
I'm looking for some of the following to fill in a really neat pot I got.
(CA specific forms, if possible)
P. macroceras var. macroceras
D. x obovata
The Utrics can go around the pot, since apparently they're all aquatic.
D. capensis 'typical'
N. x 'Black Knight'
N. x 'Miranda'
N. singalana Pasaman
N. x 'Ventrata'
N. ventricosa x N. spathulata...
I recently completed a trade for my third Nepenthes and I'm pretty happy with what I received. I believe it is a N. ventricosa x maxima. So I have a few questions. Is there a proper name for this hybrid? I'm thinking it's N. Red Leopard.
How should I treat this plant? Intermediate...
I have been trying to put together a comprehensive trade list for some time, but keep running out of time. I finally gave up and decided to do it as I can. So the following is the first of what is a hopefully a series of updates over the next week or two. If you see anything that you find...
This was one of my first neps and shortly after I bought it someone told me (I believe it was Wire-man) that It was probably not a true N. alata, and that in fact it was most likely a N. ventrata. So I emailed the place that I got it from to ask questions, In the reply they...
