Two Plant Orders Arrived Today

by chevyguy8893 » Sat May 30, 2015 8:10 pm

It's always a good day when new plants arrive :D. I order from two different suppliers Native Exotics and a carnivorous plant store. This is my second time ordering from Native Exotics, and, as expected, the plants were shipped promptly, well packed, and arrived healthy. As for a carnivorous plant store, this was my first order. These plants were also well packed, shipped out in a timely fashion, and arrived healthy with the tall pitchers intact. In both cases I was happy with the communication.

I took advantage of the sale Native Exotics has going to get a couple of plants, and as a promotional bonus I got a third plant for free.
1) Heliamphora chimantensis from Chimantá Tepuis: Clone 3, a tissue cultured by Andreas Wistuba
2) Nepenthes burbidgeae x campanulata: Seed grown plant from Borneo Exotics
3) Nepenthes truncata: The bonus plant, a seed grown plant imported from Exotica Plants

The a carnivorous plant store order was for a couple of Sarracenia to add to my stock tank bog.
1) Sarracenia leucophylla x S. flava "red lip" [MK H88] from Baker, Florida
2) Sarracenia (flava x purpurea var. purpurea) x S. leucophylla

Everything looks great! What are the costs for shipping from Native Exotics, and how do you plan to keep the N. Truncata and your other Nepenthes?

For this order it was $10.50, but I think shipping starts at $9.50 for USPS priority. During the winter it goes up some to include a heat pack, which is how I got my first plant last year.

Both of the new neps are taking the place of one of the N. x ventrata I had in my terrarium. So they will be in the same conditions I have been keeping my helis in. Though I will have to think about what to do when the N. truncata gets too big.

Oh, so I assume you are keeping them in highland/semi-highland conditions? Or are the Heliamphora you have more tolerant of the warmer day/night temps?

You assumed correct (I probably should have mentioned the temps prior, sorry). During the day the temps are between 73-75F, but at night it drops to the mid to low 60's when I open the basement windows.

Thanks! Now I just hope to keep them looking good in my care. I'm still pretty new to growing Nepenthes.
