Interesting, are they in a lot of direct sunlight? My spectabilis x veitchii doesn't seem to do that, but it doesn't get a lot of direct sun. My spathulata x spectabilis does color up with age like that one in the same amount of light that my spectabilis x veitchii gets.

A day without Nepenthes is like a day without sunshine! -- steve
The front and back sides of my GH don't have shade netting, only one layer of clearish plastic sheeting. That's where this plant lives, and where it gets the full brunt of the afternoon sun for three hours straight.
Hans that veitchii x spectabilis is spectacular. Have you ever thought about removing the shadecloth completely? I was so scared to do it but since I did, ALL of my plants seem to crave the sun...especially in these shorter winter days they are literally reaching for the sunniest spot possible. I didn't lose a single plant after removing my shade cloth. Ludwig
Have you ever thought about removing the shadecloth completely?
Yes, but I can't, it's integrated in the GH structure. In summer, such a move would kill every single plant, of course, but in winter I should really do it.
That gives me an idea: I should replace the black shade cloth with the light silver type, and then cover the GH with an extra layer of black SC in summer. Hey, I'll call my greenhouse designer right away!

plantguyty1: Does anybody need pollen? I have N. Miranda it's the first time it flowered for me so I do not know if its sterile or a good candidate. Is there anybody with an active female that would like to give my pollen a shot?

thatoneplantboi: Hey guys, I'm new to growing nepenthes, I'm getting a mini indoor greenhouse to grow them in. What kind of light should I use for them? Also, if you could provide a link to a product, it would be very much appreciated

borneo: Yes, they work superbly. But you don't need expensive lights, cheap ones work well too.
