This trigger plant grows on the mossy banks of certain creeks and on some waterfalls, it is common in North Queensland (Aust), it loves bright light but can tolerate full shade, leaves go red in full sun and generally weakens the plant, it grows amongst Drosera peltata/lunata, burmanni and spathulata here in the tropics (N.Q), it is ussually a rossete(2-4cm) however if grown in dark enough shade can be trained into a small tree-like plant (upto 3cm tall), its flowers are white and 2-3mm in length, they flower year round if kept warm enough.
In cultivation. Soil : 50/50 peatmoss/sand or pure spaghnum Pot size : 10cm tall pots, any diameter Water : Tray method 4-6cm deep Humidity : 50% and up, higher humidity means more flowers Light : Bright light to deep shade, bright light creates more flowers. Dormancy : None, if necisary one can collect seed and store it for many years, simply sprinckling as with drosera seeds when it heats up again or is better suited. Temp : will tolerate 5C-45C, optimium is 10C-30C.(I have never tried hotter than 45 nor cooler than 5) Notes : Grows well with utric caerula, nelumbifolia, calycifida and heliamphora in captivity.
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.

vidyut: Photobucket has ruined this place and many other forum archives with years and years of photos worth referencing now blurred. Priceless information hostage to services once free, begging for adoption, arbitrarily monetized.
