I work in ASDA and was recently amazed to see Nepenthes for sale. I bought 'Lady Luck', 'Bill Bailey' and 'Suki'. I cant find much about them since buying them.
Following advice from a friend who grows carnivorous plants two were planted in pure sphagnum moss and have grown really well. They have new pitchers now. The pitchers they came with have started to wither. Should I cut them off? Original pitchers were 2cm but new ones are 4cm
I've left two in the plastic trays they came in but the lids are off. They aren't doing so well. 'Lady Luck' looks the worst
Hi Mark, I cut the withered pitchers off , cut the tendril close to the leaf . Your plants maybe suffering from a bit of shock , if they were in little plastic domes and you removed the lids the humidity change may be a shock. I grow in quite low humidity so when I get new plants that I always presume have been grown previously in high humidity I acclimatise them . I do this by placing in a clear plastic bag and slowly cut a larger and larger hole in it over a month or more, careful not to cook them if in front of a window
