Did this plant not make it thru.  Here are the photos of the plant.  The Plant was grown in a terrarium.   I used distilled water.   Is this plant dead?  When will you guys carry Nepenthes distillatoria again?



Hi Weylin,

I'm afraid it's dead as a doornail.  I'm not sure when we will carry these again.  Being a lowlander, our greenhouse is usually only suitable for them in the summer.  They are not a terribly difficult plant to find online, but I would only order one in the summer.  They don't tolerate cold well at all.  Ordering one this time of year, even with heat packs, would be risky.  I once ordered a N. ampullaria in the winter, and even with overnight shipping it didn't make it.  Lowlanders like it warm.

Good Growing!

  • Is now a good time to divide my Sarracenia?
  • Why are the traps turning black?

  • Why didn't my seeds germinate?
