#Nepenthes Discussion

Y’all. I have three words. SWEET BABY JESUS! I’ve had this nepenthes ventrata for about three years and these WEEDS have given me more than 6 basal shoots (including the ones still growing on the vine) and now, they’re back for round three. I counted six new ones (not including the 4 large vines) I won’t cut them off and I’ll update in the prime of summer when this thing is THRIVING. Mind you, this is two plants. 10 vines, 2 plants. Anyone else have this many basal shoots on their nepenthes? #CarnivorousPlants #CarnivorousClub #HappyPlants #PlantsMakePeopleHappy #PlantAddict #NewGrowth #PropagationStation #Nepenthes #NepenthesVentrata #PitcherPlant #PitcherPlants

Will pitcher plants eat palmetto bugs?

Should I stake my pitcher plant or can I let it dangle over the side of the pot

Calling Nepenthes experts. I'm intrigued by this double node above my Nepenthes leaf as normally there's just one. Does this mean it is branching out? A new leaf?

Immediately when I see these, I think of a hairy tarantula spider... but it's the tendrils of a pitcher plant before it forms into a pitcher. I didn't include a picture of a tarantula to avoid scaring anyone with arachnophobia... #plantsmakepeoplehappy #plantaddict #happyplants #greggang

I just got this little guy through Amazon, and it looks like his β€œpitchers” are drying up. Any idea what could be wrong and what I can do to make him happy?

My pitcher plant was doing great when I first got it but recently the leaves gave been turning inward and there is no new growth for the pitchers of leaves. What am I doing wrong?

Fresh Nepenthes Pitcher Plant Leaves! So here are some photos to show how Nepenthes grow their leaves, the new leaf hides in the previous one and as the old leaf grows, the new leaf emerges and pushes out from the old leaf, ultimately ending up on the opposite side to the last leaf (how clever!) Hopefully, the photos show this. I was adding live sphagnum moss in the hopes of adding humidity for my Nepenthes and thought I would take some photos as well. Have a good Good Friday everyone, I appreciate all the interest shown to these amazing plants πŸ₯°πŸ€©πŸ™πŸ‘πŸ˜ƒπŸ€— #newgrowth #freshleaffriday #freshfeaturedfriday #plantsmakepeoplehappy #plantaddict #plantmafia #happyplants #carnivorousplants #greggers #greggang

What soil should I put my pitcher plant in? The soil the plant came with is not soaking in much water
