A Few Nepenthes

Here’s a few Nepenthes photos! They’re lovin’ their dome and I’m seeing quite a bit of new pitchers forming. It’s all so exciting for me and I can see why these plants are so addicting!

Oh, So THAT’s What You’ve Been Up To…

So I finally got “The Dome” constructed ¬†(a few photos in this post) – the area that will house the Nepenthes, and some other plants — and so far so good. What I didn’t mention to you was that from the time I moved greenhouses, I just kept all the Nepenthes in a large cement mixing bin and kinda just let them hang out in some random corner of the greenhouse. They were doing their own thing this whole time though and when I moved them to “The Dome” (for lack of a better name at the moment), I had a few pleasant pitcher surprises. See, they were pretty crowded and there was so much stuff just going on in the tub that I didn’t really care to pay attention. Kinda cool cuz when it came time to move em, I was pleasantly surprised with some of my findings. Here’s a few photos of what they’ve been up without me really knowing. Interesting stuff! As the collection grows, I’ll update you with more photos. Enjoy!

A Couple of Neps

Hope you all are doing well. I grow a few other pitchers outside of the Sarracenia genus. ¬†Nepenthes are a very beautiful and stunning genus of pitchers – hauntingly beautiful. I have a few Nepenthes here and perhaps once I get more space and better facilities, I’ll explore and dive into this genus a bit more! Here’s a couple of photos of Nepenthes pitchers for your enjoyment.
