I just got a Nepenthes spectabilis x ventricosa BE-3745 from Carnivero. (Birthday gift from my cousins.) I’m planning on potting it into 1:1 sphagnum/perlite. I’m gonna bag it and put it in indirect light near the window. If you guys have any suggestions, please share them.

I used to be very delicate about this kinda thing but then I took a Smilesii I had seed grown and always left coveredand threw it outside in the shade for a week, then partial behind a couple others. Some species are finicky but most are a lot more adaptive than people think. I currently have highland crosses and intermediates chilling in partial sun here in FL getting blasted by 95 degree weather :lol: Ventricosa are tough.

Thanks. I’m just paranoid about killing it. Oh, and I should’ve mentioned that I’m acclimating to a windowsill.

Did I pot the plant right?

Yeah looks good. Just keep an eye on it. If it looks like its really struggling, feel free to bag it but if it maintains, I'd just let it work itself out.

Only one plant of mine didn't acclimate and I brought it inside. Debating if I'm going to bag it to get its vigor back or not. You'll have more than a day to decide.

Yeah I think I'll do humidity first because the temperature will rise too high in the bag if I put the plant in direct light.

My Nepenthes veitchii x ventricosa BE-4500 came yesterday. I bagged it and now it’s acclimating with the other nepenthes. I’m assuming the brown was because of the hot weather during shipping.

Do the plants look like they’re acclimating well? The bags are fully open and the plants are a few feet from the windowsill.
