    My new Nepenthes arrived.

    They are in long fiber sphagnum moss. They were a bit dry when I got them. Ran water from my dehumidifier through the moss when I got them home. Most likely they have been watered using the greenhouse water/fertilizer system.

    Will be watching them to see if I need to change out the media they are in. I expect these to come around nicely.

    Careful where you crawl, it might be a trap!

    Sounds like you're on it. How many of us have "rescued" CPs from stores? At least your neps were from a greenhouse and not a hardware store or a grocery store (yes, I've purchased sorry looking plants from both). Happy to report they're alive and well today.

    My new Nepenthes arrived.

    Nepenthes x Titanic Savior has lost many of its pitchers. This is expected getting acclimated to a new environment. The new leaf growing already aborted its pitcher. Hope the next one survives. Not sure if itís happy.



    Nepenthes x Jolly Twist lost a few pitchers. New leaf looks good and should produce a new pitcher. Think it is happy.



    Nepenthes x Fancy Tapestry lost 2 pitchers that dried out. Three turned black on the bases, wings, and cap. They do not appear dead as of yet, but I did cut one off. The newest pitcher that was developing has opened up and is showing red spotting. Think itís happy.



    They are in a 20 gal long terrarium with glass top. Lighting is a 45 watt LED panel. Have a temperature controlled heat mat under the pots. Will be adding a usb fan once my speed control comes. Too much air movement without a control. Think that may have been why Nepenthes x Titanic Savior new growth dried out.
