    Thanks guys . LOL Jim!! That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it .

    I took some time today to try again. Pulled out the tripod and played around with the auto and manual focus. I think it's safe to say that photography will stay a hobby. I'm just not all that good at it.

    Most of my flowers didn't wait for me, so I had to find some other victims.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated. Some of them turned out a bit soft and perhaps not as focused as they should be.

    U. sandersonii round two


    D. prolifera


    D. montana var. tomentosa


    P. primuliflora


    N. clipeata X (clipeata x eymae)






    Not a macro. Thought I should get a picture of my N. spectabilis before I butcher it. The main vine has suffered quite a bit supporting two nice sized basals.
    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?

    So that's the spect you were talking about.

    Is your U. humboldtii from rattler? Mine is. Looks great!

    Thanks guys! I didn't know that the N. clipeata hybrid was such a drooler! It took forever to settle in and I was having some doubts about it. It's one of my favorites now .

    Jeff, that is the spec I mentioned. Is that okay? The basals are technically bigger than the vine if you go by width. They are now sitting in a cup of water waiting to root (I can't root anything dealing with Nepenthes in media, they rot; water works go figure). My U. humboldtii is indeed from rattler. It's settled in nicely I think. I had some seedlings that came from an offer awhile ago, but unfortunately I ended up killing them all.

    Indigo, I have no idea why some Neps drool. Some don't drool at all while others go crazy.

    Thanks guy. I honestly think I do better with pictures when NOT trying haha. Every time I look at them, they look worse .

    Yes, Nepenthes create nectar to lure insects, but I wouldn't say they make it when they're "hungry." If they really enjoy their home, they will most likely produce nectar. And it is Sweeeet. I wish I had a jar of it.
