Nepenthes

I have quite a large collection of Nepenthes that started off with mainly highland species between 2015 – 2016 but this year I bought a vivarium to start collecting some lowland plants too. I have always had an interest in Nepenthes and grown many different species from an early age but in the last couple  of years I have built up my collection extensively. Please press Nepenthes Plant List to view my collection.

In 2007 I travelled to Borneo to search for Orchids and the indigenous pitcher plants of the genus Nepenthes. There are about 130 species of these carnivorous plants in various sizes and colours. I had quite a collection in my greenhouse back then but that did not satisfy the urge to see them growing in their natural environment.  

Certain species of Nepenthes are becoming extinct or extremely rare. For further information visitRare Nepenthes Collection
