#Nepenthes Discussion

#CarniverousPlants despite broiling poor Tim’s growing tip when I didn’t check the greenhouse temperature often enough, Tim has still just kept growing along ❤️ the new leaf started separating yesterday and this is this morning. Tim’s lower leaves are a lot less yellow now too, although I haven’t touched the brown bits but they have stopped increasing and are all dried up now. Overall I’m pretty happy with Tim’s progress, another few days and he should be ok for me to mess with the media 😬

Tim and I are expecting!!! After making the decision with Ulysses to go ahead and try and propagate his damaged leaves instead of recovery I looked at Tim and welll….. a few hours later and Tim and I are expecting!!!! I took Tims measurements, a whopping 365 mm leaf tip to leaf tip and 640mm rootball to growing tip, 560mm growing length (8cm rootball to first leafy). Since I decided to go ahead and permanently pot a terrarium for my Nepenthes I used the shortest side to measure the shortest Tim would possibly need to be before knowing how they would all fit and still have room to grow. The last thing I wanted to do was cut Tim again if I didn’t have to. There will be a few posts about this so I better go ahead and start creating some tags to keep track of all this and #TheSagaOfTinyTim. I finished up around 2 am and then stuck them in their “womb bags” this morning. We have 17 sprouts gestating in the #propogationstaion and Tim still has 15 leaves, if I had bothered to count before the cut I would have done an even split. Now Tim is starting to look like one of these #HappyPlants I keep hearing so much about! #PlantsMakePeopleHappy #Nepenthes #CarnivorousPlants

#TheSagaOfTinyTim well I have had a couple friends ask me why I put tiny nepenthes in pots in bags on pants clippy hangers at an an angle… to quickly and easily see the water level inside at all times and how clear it is or if it needs to be changed😬 murky water is a good indication there’s something not right going on in the bag but it keeps any bacteria seperate from the other gestating babies. Some sediment is normal, it’s brand new media mixed up just for them. But there’s a method to my madness I swear! Sometimes… #PlantsMakePeopleHappy #ShareYourProcess #MakingSpaceWhereThereIsNone #propogationstation

I swear to god Tim 😩 this poor plant copped a burn yesterday 😳 2 of my nepenthes ended up singed, everyone else seems ok so far but shifted them lower in the green house and put a fish tank filter in a container underneath to create more humidity 😤😭 #PlantsMakePeopleHappy I swear…. For some reason this people can’t make poor Tim happy though 🤦‍♀️ #sorrybuddy

Meet Tiny Tim the giant Nepenthes!! Tim only came home 5 days ago. I came across Tim on Facebook, for a really good price for the size. Although Tim’s ad wasn’t exactly accurate, the first picture shows lovely healthy traps, good colour and about half the total leaves Tim currently has. The second shows Tim’s state when he arrived. My best guesses are the humidity was too low, the heat too high and Tim was given tap water over a period of a good few months. I promptly sat Tim’s whole pot in about a litre of demineralised water to leach the potting media, Tim seems to appreciate this and had much greener looking leaves within a day or 2. The tiny trap buds seems to have at least stopped drying out, I’m hoping a couple survive since Tim has zero traps right now. On day 3 I removed the stake to try and encourage some basal rosettes before I decide if I’m going to propagate from Tim or not. And then of course I promptly broiled Tim’s growing tip the other day when it hit 38 and I didn’t check the temperature in the greenhouse often enough to catch it in time.

#TheSagaOfTinyTim continues!! As my eldest Human Bean-sprout likes to tell me, I should not have adult money…. Todays #sidemission is my “keepers” are all getting name tags and personal quotes just because I wanna and it’s fun!! 🤣 #crazyplantlady #HappyPlants #PlantsMakePeopleHappy #PlantAddict #madplantscientist

#TheSagaOfTinyTim **sigh** there’s always one Derp in every family… we have a Tim Prop who’s decided to be a philodendron and grow an air root looking thing …. I swear carnivores are DERPS. Apart from that all 17 seem to be doing well nice and green. The tip piece is unfurling and has the new one inside 👌 a couple more weeks and they can graduate to part popped bags in the big boy tank. Ulysses props update soonish #HappyPlants #PlantsMakePeopleHappy #PlantAddict #NewGrowth #PropagationStation #ShareYourProcess #Nepenthes

#PlantAddict #PropagationStation #DIYPlanter #CarnivorousPlants #sundews #Nepenthes #ShareYourProcess #evilgenius well I been at it again!! Nothing too crazy really but a couple carnivores permanently potted today 😊 Q graduated (a few days late) from the womb bag to a humidity hut!! Yup, coffee jar with a hole in the lid 👌 should maintain between 85 and 90% humidity unless I let the media dry out and the hole means I can put water in without removing the lid. Then we have some slightly scorched sundews 😅 poor guys are not doing great in the summer here, if it isn’t too much direct sun it’s too hot for them 😩 they’re being moved into the plant room too 😍 but for now I chose 3 different vibrant red rosette type sundews so that as they grow in and spread it will eventually look kinda like exposed brains 🤪 I mean, they need to actually be healthy for that too so here’s hoping!! 👌
