    Nice Nep! Too bad they get so big. Hard to do in an apt.

    This outgrew my lowland terrarium...and now it's in a room with a dehumidifier. :eek:

    N. mirabilis x N. bicalcarata

    N. ampullaria and ventricosa are high up on my list, but I love all Nepenthes. My least favorite is N. mirabilis.

    N. bicalcarata is awesome. If I had the space, that is the one I'd most like to have.

    Gotta love the teeth.
     
  9. Wow!! That's a great plant! Very beautiful and unusual. Reminds me of the pods in Invasion of the Body Snatcher, but cooler!

    Space isn't as big of an issue as you're making it out to be. There's plenty of Nepenthes that stay fairly small. And you can trim them back if they get too big for your liking. And many species grow extremely slowly, so it's not like they'll be monsters by the end of the month...or year(s). :)

    The following were grown in household conditions:
    Drooling N. ventrata upper

    Hamata has such fun looking pitchers. Have you managed to get your hands on a villosa?

    No...there is a bit of a villosa shortage at the moment, and most private collevtors are unwilling to sell/trade theirs...so far it has illuded me...

    How much do these usually cost around and care for?
    They look amazing :O

    N.hamata?....they generally cost anywahere between 50-125 bucks, depends on the kind..seedgrown plants cost more than cloned plants. As far as care goes, they like high humidity with day temps between 70-80F with night temps between 50-65F They also need decent lighting.
