Nepenthes in Culture III



Nepenthes merrilliana 

One oft the - maybe only for me- problematic species in culture. Once I had a beautiful adult plant (see the green pitcher) which died after 5 years (left). The reason was fungi in the roots A cutting of it survived and is now forming red! Pitchers (right).

Nepenthes bellii =

N. globamphora

A specie from the Philippines with tiny pitchers, the form of them is very similar to them of N. merrilliana



Nepenthes ampullaria, the all-red-form
