Hello fellow Nepenthes lover!
My name is Gianne and I have been growing Nepenthes and other interesting plants since I was very young. My grandmother kept African Violets on the kitchen windowsill and I naturally followed suit...although I like to think my plants were slightly more entertaining! My growing interest in cultivating, learning, and photographing tropical pitcher plants motivated me to create this website as an online diary for my plant hobby. I also love sharing photos on my Instagram, @Nepenthes_Diary. I hope my many joys and occasional failures help you on your own plant journey!
In addition to cultivating Nepenthes, I breed, show, and am a certified judge for domestic and wild Bettas. The sister website to my fish hobby is at Inglorious Bettas. My YouTube channel will host videos for both my fish and my carnivorous plant hobbies.
Check out how I grow my Nepenthes indoors on windowsills and under artificial lights in the Growing Nepenthes section. For now, I will be slowly adding more individual plant profiles to the Species/Hybrids Cultivation section. Active profiles are highlighted in light green.
I hope you enjoy the website!
Just a High School Biology teacher that loves growing plants!
