Explore the fascinating diversity of carnivorous tropical pitcher plants (Nepenthes) with Nepy, featuring new images along with additional facts and commentary!

Nepenthes are perhaps the most fascinating and specialised carnivorous plants on planet Earth.

Nepy is a Nepenthes field reference, containing fully illustrated entries for the majority of recognised species that include:

- two representative pitcher photographs for each species
- a description that includes guidance on pronunciation, species distribution, range, elevation and additional field notes
- a simple picture quiz to help you learn to identify them
- no in-app banners or ads

The Nepenthes entries are based primarily on data published in peer reviewed research papers, specialist literature relating to the genus, as well as on the general observations of a number of specialists. However, all entries are written in accessible English.

Extremely useful! I use it constantly for reference. While the information is limited to the natural surroundings of these plants, it is still very pertinent information for growing. I reference to it constantly for quick facts when I am reading about Nepenthes. I find especially the altitude ranges useful to determine if a plant is appropriate for my growing conditions. Great quick guide for orienting yourself with unfamiliar species as it has incredible pictures of both the upper and lower pitchers. I even find the Quiz entertaining. Well worth the download. Thank you for making this available! Love it.

Very nice. It covers the majority of the species. Hope the developer can update more species that are found recently
