Nepenthes

Nepenthes are the Tropical Pitcher Plants, the classic large rainforest meat-eating vine. Particular to high humidity and moderate to very bright lighting, many are highly adaptable to a variety of growing conditions.

N. gracilis "Black Speckle" -$30

Grown from seed by myself, this clone develops the characteristic almost miniature pitchers of the species with a tubby lower third and cylindrical or narrowing upper portion, colored in bright leafy green and lightly to densely covered in speckles of deep red to almost black. It also has a rather high propensity to develop basal rosettes and offshoots, making for a complex tangle of pitchering vines and carpet pitchers.

One rooted cutting available, approximately 12" long and 5" across, with inch tall pitchers.

N. ventricosa "cherry lips" x "red" -$20

One of several seed-grown individuals that are proving to display incredibly rich red coloration in the pitchers and deep red peristomes with a perfectly hourglass-shaped profile. Pictured is the primary plant for sale, approximately 5 inches in diameter with pitcher just over an inch tall. Some of the larger siblings may also be available upon inquiry.

N. ventricosa x talangensis Clone A -$20

This select clone is a small but fast-growing, and highly tolerant cross that develops tubby lower and broad funnel-shaped or tubular upper pitchers both with slightly constricted waists and similar color compositions, with a tannish to light red background and heavy cherry mottling and a deep red to almost black peristome. 
Available plants are young rooted cuttings with already extensive roots and new growth just beginning to branch out from the nodes.

N. gracilis "Bukit Barisan" -$20

Two of three seed-grown clones available (A and B) from Sumatra, this is an easy-growing lowlander with slender vines and leaves and delicate, thin-walled pitchers. Lower pitchers are bulbous in the bottom, cylindrical above, and readily flush almost brick red in strong lighting in Clone A while B develops heavy red speckling or mottling, while uppers can reach more than 4" tall (large for this species) with a similar build but more flaring, funnel-shaped upper portion and red-tinged green colors. 

Available plants are rooted cuttings approximately 6" long and 6" in diameter.

N. talangensis x robcantleyi -$25

These cuttings come from a likely seed-grown individual plant that develops the tubby pitchers this cross is known for, with a pale green to tannish body spotted in deep red, and a broad peristome that ages to nearly black. Though it hasn't been seen at maturity yet, this is a cross with the potential to get huge, particularly in highland conditions.

Available plants are newly established basal cuttings just beginning to develop new leaves, currently without pitchers.

N. glabrata x maxima "Central Sulawesi" -$15

Cuttings from a plant grown from seeds labeled N. glabrata, but were clearly of hybrid nature. This is a seemingly permanently bonsai plant, having never reached more than a few inches high for me and preferring to send up new basal shoots to form a bushy habit instead of getting larger, though someone else's conditions might trigger one to begin vining. Pitchers are short and semi-cylindrical, rusty cream and cherry mottled with crimson peristomes. 

N. Sunset Songs Clone B -$20

A select clone of the grex cross N. x splendiana ('Splendid Diana') x ventricosa "red," this confirmed male clone develops beautiful semi-cylindrical waisted pitchers up to 6" or more in height and colored in rich creamy tan background with deep crimson mottling. The peristome is thick and scalloped around the edges, coloring with a similar to even deeper crimson shade. This cross grows readily in a wide variety of conditions so long as it is well-lit, and has a propensity for making basals especially as vines start to lengthen past a foot or two.

Available plants are rooted cuttings approximately 6" in diameter.

N. Rokko 'Exotica' x (spectabilis x mira) -$20

A highly prolific plant when it comes to producing basals and thus the bulbous lower pitchers it maintains for significant periods of time; a moderately sized plant with leaves just under a foot long on average, the pitchers reaching around 4-5" tall (in current conditions here; may well get much larger) and cloaked in deep mottled reds and maroon-purple that darken with age. the peristome starts out yellow with light red striping, and can age to match the rest of the pitcher body.

Available plants are rooted basal cuttings on average 2-4" in diameter.

Unrooted Cuttings
Cuttings are available for those growers experienced enough in propagation to attempt rooting and growing Nepenthes on their own. Some species and hybrids are far easier to root than others, and guarantees of success cannot be made. All cuttings are minimum 3 node sections, and may be vine or whole basal/offshoot sections.
N. graciliflora Pink.jpg
N. ventricosa fat lips.jpg

N. graciliflora "Pink" -$30

One of the former N. alata "boschiana mimic" clones, with slender pink and green pitchers bearing bulbous lower portions and a smooth green and pink peristome

N. ventricosa "fat lips" -$20

A Carlton Carnivores seed-grown clone so nicknamed for the broad peristome the red lower pitchers often possess, uppers being far more slender and bright green
