Nepenthes 'Wendy' (ventricosa x inermis) is a captivating hybrid pitcher plant known for its striking appearance and unique pitcher morphology. This Nepenthes hybrid is well-suited for a terrarium setting, combining the characteristics of its parent species. Here's a care sheet to help you cultivate Nepenthes 'Wendy' successfully:

Light: Place Nepenthes 'Wendy' in a terrarium with bright, filtered light. Provide access to natural sunlight or use artificial lighting such as fluorescent lights or LED grow lights. Aim for 12-16 hours of light per day, adjusting the intensity to prevent leaf burn.

Temperature: Maintain a temperature range of 70-85°F (21-29°C) during the day and slightly cooler temperatures at night. 'Wendy' appreciates warmth, reflecting the tropical conditions of its parent species.

Humidity: Keep the terrarium humidity high, around 50-70% or more. Nepenthes species thrive in humid environments. Use a humidity gauge to monitor levels, and consider misting the terrarium if needed.

Substrate: Plant Nepenthes 'Wendy' in a well-draining, acidic substrate. A mix of sphagnum moss, perlite, and orchid bark or a specialized carnivorous plant mix works well. Ensure the substrate remains consistently moist but not waterlogged.

Water: Water the plant with purified water, such as distilled or rainwater. 'Wendy' is sensitive to minerals, so avoid tap water. Keep the substrate consistently moist, and maintain a shallow tray of water at the bottom of the terrarium to enhance humidity.

Feeding: Nepenthes are carnivorous plants that capture insects for nutrients. Allow the plant to catch its prey naturally in a terrarium setting. If insect availability is limited, you may supplement its diet with occasional feeding of small insects like fruit flies or pinhead crickets.


  • Regularly remove dead or senescent pitchers to encourage the development of new traps.
  • Monitor for pests, such as spider mites or aphids. Remove pests manually or use insecticidal soap if necessary.

Terrarium Placement: Position Nepenthes 'Wendy' in a location with bright, filtered light within the terrarium. Allow space for the plant to produce its unique pitcher traps. 'Wendy' exhibits a blend of characteristics from ventricosa and inermis, creating a visually appealing specimen in the terrarium.

By following these care instructions, you can create an optimal environment for Nepenthes 'Wendy' (ventricosa x inermis) in your terrarium. Enjoy the beauty and carnivorous nature of this unique hybrid Nepenthes as it grows and produces its distinctive pitchers.
