post your nepenthes pictures here!

nepenthes_ceasarNovember 8, 2007

i am really interested in nepethes. i have seen this sort of post on other sites and thought it would be a good post here.i love nepenthes and ime sure many of the people participating in this forum have some good ones. any nepenthes, though i (and i am sure many other people would too.) would absoloutly LOVE to see pix of nepenthes ceasar, nepenthes talengensis, nepenthes rajah, nepenthes williamsii,nepenthes truncata, nepenthes alata, nepenthes ampullaria, and nepenthes merrilliana. i am interested in buying any large specimens of n.sanguinea and n.ventricosa. lrge so tht they are more likly to flower. male and female is what i need. i want to cross them and see what would happen. i beleive it would be the perfect hybrid.

WOW! n. rafflesiana and n. ventrata ime guessing. might be wrong about the first pic though. not very good about distinguishing n. raffllesiana from numorous other nepenthes species. they look great!! 6 years old i'd guess. again, awsome pix! i wish my nepenthes were that big.

Here's mine. It hangs under some oak trees in my back yard for most of the year. I bring it indoors for the winter. I always cut it back so that it doesn't hang over the pot and remove all the pitchers before I bring it inside (I don't want all that water and dead bugs in my house). I've done this for several years with good success. But I decided to come here and see what other people do in the winter. Interesting forum!

I agree, gorgeous plant you have there Kathy.

Here is my N. sanguinea again, recent pitchers have been growing in at about 5 1/2 to 6 inches now. It is in the process of removing smaller older pitchers and is growing more upright and taller. I have only had it a year thus far, starting it from a tiny 3 inch plant to a 14 inch across teenager. Can't wait to see it fully bush out and vine more.

Hello, this is actually cpgrower770 but i was not here for so long that i guess it deleted my profile name or something. Anyway, first I forgot to say thank you to carnivorous plants and mutant hybrid for identifying my nep. Second, just for info the very first pic is N X Mixta.

This is what i use.

Go to www.photobucket.com

Register there and do that stuff.

Then if your picture is on your computer, go too your album and on one of the things hit browse.

Then find your picture and double click on it.

This will put it in there.

Repeat with all pictures.

Then hit upload.

Then once all are uploaded, copy the bar that says html

then paste that code on here.

Then Enjoy.

Or you could follow Mutant_hybrid's instructions as below. This way post's your pictures directly, so no need to copy whatever link you provide.

I had to work at it to find out how to post pictures too. First, find a good free picture download site, I use allyoucanupload.com. Just load up your pictures to them and use the section that states "link to original picture" and "for forum and message board use" and "primary." Copy that line and you will get this kind of link:

[URL=http://allyoucanupload.webshots.com/v/2002596430646750016][IMG]http://aycu40.webshots.com/image/12519/2002596430646750016_rs.jpg[/IMG][/URL]

You will only need the second half of this link and can delete all of it except:
http://aycu40.webshots.com/image/12519/2002596430646750016_rs.jpg

Type in img src="" and paste your link between the quotation marks. Next add around the entire code line to activate it. That is, the goes at the very end of your link after the end quotation mark.

When you preview the message, you should see the image like this:

Okay, not quite up to the size of the other Neps here. But this is my little N. Ephippiata. The pitcher in the foreground is about the size of a cooked rice grain. It has not opened yet.

Hi Nepenthes Ceasar. You're right, it's a ventrata. It's probably my camera that makes the pitchers look white. When I bought it 14 months ago it had 6 large pitchers, which it lost due to low humidity & shock over a month. It then refused to pitcher for about 6 months.

As you can see the pitchers are on the small side, especially when compared to how big they were when I purchased it. Maybe I should be pruning it, instead of letting it grow wild? I'm a bit of a newbie with the care of pitchers, even though I have a minature Lowli and a sanguina, which seem to grow a lot easier than the ventrata.

I brought it inside since the cold weather started and it looks like it stopped producing pitchers again!

Have you had any luck trying to source any neps you've been after? I see posts from you all the time on this forum.

I received N.ventrata from home depot, i got n.rafflesiana from www.bugbitingplants.com(2+ months after and it is still in shock), and i got my n.mirdana(i think that's how it's spelled) on ebay. i use grounded up coconut husk as a growing medium. i'm not sure if it's the best thing, but my neps seem to be doing fine so far.

Hunterkiller,

I got my Nepenthes sanguinea at cobraplant.com, planted it in 1/3 coconut husk / 1/3 peat moss / 1/3 orchid bark, and it suffered no shipping shock, continuously pitchering through the past year. It started with 2 inch pitchers and now produces 6 inch pitchers. I grow it open pot indoors in moderate humidity South Texas.

suprise suprise, my sanguinea is now pitchering at an unbeleivable rate, already has a pitcher that is almost complete, then another pitcher that is getting close, i mean, the leaf this pitcher is on has only been open for a few days. then the leaf stalk is growing at an unbelevable rate, it has tripled in size since the other leaf opened.

LOL i feel sorry for you and your Lowii. I have an Ephippiata(very close ties to Lowii) which grows very slowly, but even it is supposed to grow faster than Lowii. Just stick it in the back of your collection and wait a year or two before looking at it again.

BTW, I've heard that keeping a nepenthes standing in water is bad.

Hi drwurm. I'm learning by my mistakes. Definitely do not buy from wistuba.com. Fantastic pictures to draw you in and then the sting. They're based in Germany and as there are very few carnivorous plant sites in the UK we have to try Europe.

I was almost brought to tears when I opened the box, it was smaller than it is in the pic. Donations are welcome. LOL.

My neps are sitting in a bed of spag moss. I thought I'd grow it around my neps to increase what little amount I had and to increase humidity. It's more of an experiment, so far they have both been okay and not rotted.

More pics peeps?

Yeah, it is. You should check out their gallery. Trips to Borneo, Sumatra & such likes have been funded by suckers like me. The same applies to Nepenti.nl who have a great looking site & used to trade on e-bay. They supplied me with a flytrap even smaller than the lowii!
