    Cool Nepenthes noid

    My Nepenthes is growing much better. I moved it out back so it gets misted with the vandas and the change is amazing. My newest pitcher is twice the size of the others. The smaller pitchers have more color though as they are getting more sun. The pictures don't show the size difference very well...but in the first picture the pitcher on the left side is the normal size for the larger pitchers....the one on the right is my newest and largest.

    This last pitcher gets the most sun, and as i've noted more sun means more color. I will try to get a few pic's looking down into the pitchers next time...

    I love Neps. If only they weren't such space hogs.

    I decided to do the same with mine Connie, although its a Ventrata and relocate it earlier in the season. Glad yours has responded for you, now I need some of your magic. Put mine in a sunnier spot and more humid, but still little growth and no pitchers. Always found them an ideal plant to mix in with the tropical theme and was hoping that the pitchers would attract/kill the flys that follow the trail of some of the bulbos and drive me crazy! Any tips.

    I neglect mine and once in awhile when I use the watering can to fertilize the vanda I let some get on the nepenthes. That's really it...they are in an extremely breezey spot and sit on the ground as mine has become huge, so I tossed it under the bamboo tree. They like alot of sun, but not direct. Mine are usually hanging next to the vanda. But since it's on the ground, it's begun growing huge and getting pitchers. They are bog plants and like it hot and humid and wet. When mine dried out this past winter it got these amazing flower spikes that bloomed for a couple weeks.

    Thanks Connie. Will take note. I guess we are all guilty at times for over caring!

    I've noticed they like between phal and oncidium light (1600-2200 foot candles). I killed mine when i got it but i was able to save a few cutting, they sat under lights for like 6 months doing nothing and eventually they started making a few leaves and now they are making a couple pitchers. Mine gets 50% humidity during the day and between 80-90% at night with lots of air movement. Never let them dry out they love to stay moist at all times. When nepenthes are healthy and growing leaves but not making pitches its due to not enough light or/and humidity. It takes alot of energy to make them. GOod luck

    After trying to get a good picture i've decided it's time to get a few of the sections rooted into new pots. That will be done as soon as I find what i'm supposed to pot them in. I'm thinking dirt and wood and leaves....like what's at the top of the ground. Any suggestions? I'm guessing you lay the piece across the top until it grows roots then you cut?? Like a vanilla vine piece... We shall see.
