Would like to post the another caresheet that we might be able to make for CP plants. There are so many care info in the forum and in the net, but hopefully by using the above topic "care sheet" we can easily find care info of specific species. Maybe we can ask the moderators to Pin or "sticky" this on each of the Species topic as well? and maybe in the future Poll of how we take care of each species. Please feel free to contribute how you grow your Ampullarias.
Potting mix: cocopeat mostly, with some coco chips Growing area: Outdoors (Manila City) so Hot and a bit humid but sometimes dry. Light: Full sun around 2 hours a day. Watering: Once a day if it doesn't rain, twice a day in summer (if I have time for an evening watering) Water dish: Yes with around 1/2 inch of water (drained occassionally to guard against mosquito larvae) Pot: Plastic pot approximately 4 inches high and 3 inches diameter
Others: The Amps are still small, but they look healthy, they look like they like their roots to be wet all the time, but that is just my opinion.

i have mine in a small basin, with 1/4 of the pot completely submerged in water, i still water everyday, which renews the water inside the basin, i also provide at least 4 hours of full unfiltered morning sun, it improves coloration, plus it gives the leaves a nice substance and beautiful reddish pigmentation, after that, filtered sunlight by a 20% shade netting, after lunch the sun will be at the other side of my greenhouse casting shade from a 50% shade net.
Potting mix: sphagnum moss mostly, with some cococubes, pumice and hydrocorn(LEKA) Growing area: Outdoors (Caloocan City) Hot and a bit humid but sometimes dry. Light: Full sun around 5 hours a day. Watering: Once a day if it doesn't rain, twice a day in summer. Water dish: Yes w/ 2 inch of H2O w/ floating hydrocorn to prevent the mosquito to find and drop their eggs. Pot: Plastic pot approximately 10 inches high and 7 inches diameter
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.
