Hi there. I am new to social media/ forums and have no clue how these work, but figured I ought to join at least one in case I have questions about my plants and need to ask.

I mainly grow Nepenthes, though I have quite a few sundews (mom likes them too much) and butterworts. I’m interested in acquiring more Heliamohora and diversifying into every carnivorous plant genus that I can keep alive.

I’ve had some of my plants for years, others are more recent acquisitions. I enjoy drawing/ doing art of my plants as well as photographing them. I’m interested in raising plants to flowering age to create my own hybrids and want to be a botanist after I graduate college.

I kind of want to use one of my plants as a profile image. Any way to shrink the file so it fits? Trying file size “small” and then submitting produces a blank screen.

You know I have that same problem, If I knew I would have a picture of some of my homemade croissants up! Not to side track or anything but I have to say nice (I’m guessing) talangensis! I recently acquired one myself and i’ve heard that those kind of species like jamban, flava, dubia, & talangensis can be a pretty tricky. I wanted to know if that’s the case for you and any tips?

I have jamban and flava, don’t have talangensis so I can’t speak on it. The oldest of my toilet shaped pitchers thus far is my inermis. I stuck it in a clear crayon box and threw that on a windowsill next to the AC, which I adjust to get the temp drops. It’s thriving and the tendrils are even blushing the slightest pink. Humidity stays pretty high constantly, don’t have a monitor but whatever it’s at, the plant likes.

Yes, I didn’t know that jacquelineae looks like that when young. :)

Hello. I’m the lunatic who kills every Sarracenia purpurea they come across. Not only that, I managed to kill a Drosera spatulata. But at least all the Nepenthes and Heliamphora are thriving.

I was a bit surprised too, but I think that’s just how most of the toilet pitchers are. Flava looks like that as a young plant too. Good luck with your talangensis, maybe one day I’ll get one.

Purps are my favorite. I just recently added some new locations.
