I thought I would share a look inside my carnivorous plant terrarium! Among these species are various Nepenthes, Heliamphora, some Utricularia, Drosera, and some non-carnivorous Tillandsia (Air Plants). Enjoy plant enthusiasts of Tumblr!
Native to the montane forests of Northen Sumatra, (typically 1800 - 2100 metres above sea level) N. jamban is distinct among Nepenthes in its particularly infundibular (funnel shaped) pitchers and its narrow operculum containing 20 - 30 visible glands concentrated at its apex. (glands not visible in these photos.
Top left is a terrestrial pitcher while top right and bottom are upper pitchers. (a particular Nepenthes species’pitchers size and shape is usually affected by whether or not a pitcher is close to or on the ground or attatched to the climbing vine and therefore elevated. Lower pitchers tend to be larger, wider and more colourful while upper pitchers are more slender and less colourful, FYI. :))
It’s finally warm and humid enough to hang out the cold sensitive carnivorous plants. My Nepenthes Ventrata just started to develop pitchers a couple of months ago after a full pitcher-less year, and they’re already way bigger than they have been the two years I’ve had him.
The wasps now have a nice surprise waiting for them on my balcony.
Love this enthusiastic pitcher plant though I have no idea where it gets the energy to produce so many pitchers cos the one next to it has zero pitchers. ZERO. (Maybe it’s stealing all the insects? idk) 🐜
