This is one of our favorite nepenthes, who wouldnt, with that fang... i think
its fitting for a Halloween. Of all my nepenthes this is the largest so far with
a leaf span of 2ft. The photo is the newest pitcher. Cant wait for my truncata's
and merillianas to produce they're giant pitchers.
One unique pitcher..
Amazing pitcher and picture.
Amazing. A nice plant, a nice shot.
Randy, this species occurs in the Philippines?
Awesome ! I want one ! This looks like a vampire !!
Great flower and nice shot. The right one for Halloween
Peter, Nepenthes bicalcarata i think is endemic to Borneo if memory serves me right.
Amey I have no doubt that you'll find one in India and besides its easy to grow.
Thank you all.
very nice nepenthes
would like also to have one, though i'm having second thought with regards to this type of plants, according to what i've read it needs cool areas and is delicate to water.
any advice regarding growing tips and cultivars just to start with?

and humid environment. As for water, I find that Nepenthes are quite tolerant of water
quality compared to other carnivorous plants. Mabuhay has some Nepenthes alata, a

a strapleaf Vanda, lots of light, lots of humidity and lots of water. I would also suggest
the following for a beginner nep.
as for hybrids go for
Be warned tho, Nepenthes can be much more expensive than orchids. If you want I have
a spare Sarracenia Scarlett Belle and Nepenthes alata.
