Nepenthes sp., Winged Nepenthes, Pitcher Plant, Monkey Cups
Nepenthes truncata

Nepenthes sp.

Winged Nepenthes, Pitcher Plant, Monkey Cups
Family: Nepenthaceae
Origin: Borneo, Malaysia, Philippines & Sumatra
Small shrub 2-5 ftSemi-shadeRegular waterUnusual colorSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Carnivorous climbing vine. Passive pitfall traps produced at the tips of the leaves trap and digest small insects. Color of the pitchers light-green, often with light or dark-red or violet spots. Depending on where you live many of the needs of Nepenthes can be met by adapting them to your growing environment. Nepenthes are extremely versatile and adaptable to many different growing conditions.

Do not fertilize these plants with dry fertilizer! They get all their food from "eating" insects! If you are growing the plant where it cannot catch insects for long periods, you can add an occasional small insect such as a fly, a cockroach or a few very small insects to mature pitchers. Many types benefit from very mild, diluted liquid orchid fertilizer such as SUNSHINE Orchidasm, and solution should be added only to the pitchers when they are 3/4 filled with water.

Orbea variegata, Stapelia variegata

Starfish Flower, Star Flower, Toad Cactus
Family: Apocynaceae   (Formerly:Asclepiadaceae)
Subfamily: Asclepiadoideae
Origin: South Africa
Small shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeModerate waterUnusual colorYellow/orange flowers

Very easy to grow, it is the ideal plant for beginners, needs light shade to full sun (but tolerate shadow), very resistance to heat will also tolerate quite cold temperatures and light frost too (in good condition), best in a ventilated environment. Water regularly during the growing season, keep dry in winter. Use a gritty, well-drained soil pH 7.5 to 8,5 (mildly alkaline). It is easily propagated by removing a cutting, sometimes with roots attached, in spring and summer, but seeds germinate readily if they are sown when fresh.

The typical flower is 5-7 cm across with 5 blunt lobes, starfish-like, attractively patterned or dusted with chocolate/purple, brown/bronze blotches on a greenish-yellow background, mostly in 6-7 rows or irregularly scattered, Corolla rugose, with a yellow central disc speckled with dark spots. Flowers coming in late summer or fall, have a light carrion smell.

It is quite free flowering if in direct sunlight. The plant can readily set seed, after the fecundation the carpels develop long cylindrical fruits up to 12 cm long, these need to be contained when they ripen, because as soon as the fruit opens it liberate a cloud of flying seed provided whit a white feathery cotton fluff.
