What kind of setup do you give your Nepenthes plants? I mean, moisture-wise, light-wise, air-flow-wise, etc.

I got a Nepenthes aristholochioides x burkei and a Drosera spatulata (sundew) from Black Jungle today.

I'll post pics of the Nepenthes after I get it out of cleaning.

Depends on the species. Stuff like ventricosa and truncata are relatively easy in my experience. However I would always recommend to start with some of the really easy hybrids like ventrata, miranda, bloody mary or rebecca soper (I know some of these sound silly but I'm not making those up). If you can grow those guys well (not just keep them alive), then move on to species as they are generally a bit more demanding compared to hybrids.

Lastly, and more importantly, how well you can grow a species heavily depends on the environment you can provide. I grow most of the plants you see in those photographs on a sunny windowsill because my temperatures coincide mostly with intermediate conditions in summer and highland conditions in winter.

I have a lot of Nepenthes in my viv together with frogs. However I do not recommend this, mostly because Nepenthes are not the easiest plants to keep happy. Even the easy hybrids don't like stagnant air or a lot of nutrients in the soil. Furthermore, nearly all Nepenthes become big vines over time so your viv will become overcrowded after a while if the plants are growing well. I know that I will have to move out my plants at some point in the next few years, and when this happens they will probably get their own space again and the frogs get to keep their current 320l (84 gallon) enclosure all to themselves.

Johanovich: What do your Nepenthes eat? And what kind of humidity / lighting do they get?

I have one Nepenthes (aristolochioides x burkei) and a sundew in a big terrarium to make some use of all the fruit flies, but I have wondered whether or not these tiny little flies will be enough when the plants get bigger.

I also have trouble getting the humidity above 75%, and I don't know their humidity needs.

They eat whatever flies that happen to fall in. In summer I sometimes put a few of them outside and then they catch mostly wasps. They get ambient humidity, although local humidity around the plants is higher as they stand together in large trays. Lighting is a south facing window.

Some of the more fickle/expensive species are in a vivarium together with frogs. I took this picture today for example of one of my auratus climbing over a pitcher of Nepenthes flava:


These plants get higher humidity, temperature never rises above 27 degrees celsius and lighting is with LEDs.
