Nepenthes ampullaria 'Brunei Red' and some other Nep updates

Picture Day! Picture Day!

I got excited and took a lot of pictures in the Lowland terrarium today. Here's why:

Look at the size of that pitcher! That's what happens after you fertilize Nepenthes, a huge blast in growth. This is the biggest pitcher Nepenthes ampullaria 'Brunei Red' has made so far.

I've also got N. x Miranda, and N. 'Judith Finn' blooming next to each other

Also, outside the terrarium Nepenthes talangensis putting out some pitchers on the two basal growths it made over the summer. This is good because at least it is adjusting quickly to having been moved back inside, hopefully the other highland Nepenthes will follow suit shortly.


  1. Can see why you were are pleased with the first one!

    1. Yeah I'm glad it's doing well, gives me an excuse to maybe get some other more expensive cultivars.

  2. Oh wow! Those pitchers are so wonderfully weird. I know nothing about them but sure like to look at your pictures.

    1. Thanks! Nepenthes are tropical carnivorous plants from southeast Asia, "wonderfully weird," is a pretty good description.
