    nep & sarr pics

    Well, it's sunny out so I've taken a few pics:

    truncata pasian


    madagascariensis - forgot if this pitcher was already open on the plant when I got it from adnedarn or not


    red leopard working on a pitcher


    alata sending up new pitchers - I like the outline around where the pitcher is going to open and the lid is going to form


    the flower the alata has been working on the whole month


    judith hindle sending up new pitchers


    the oreo's been working on pitchers too - here's a closeup of one


    and the whole pitcher


    and a royal truncata pitcher after a misting (it's watering day today)


    ...and from the front


    And while I was watering I decided to repot some pot-bound orchids (trying to break free from their pots) and pull off some basals on the neps because they were choking out the original growth points. I wrapped some damp lfs around their bottoms, and poked the plug into some regular nep potting soil (orchid mix, some lfs, some coconut husk, some more perlite...random mix). These guys have no roots yet, and I've never tried this sort of thing before, so hopefully this works. But if not, I'm not too worried.

    You take very crisp pictures. However you should pay attention to your background and the objects in your frame of view. For example, the last picture, the scissors in the lower right corner are distracting. Also in the photo of your judith hindle, the picture would be much better if you had trimmed those dead leaves in the foreground. It's nice to see blurry backgrounds, it helps reduce any distracting effects the background might have.
    I like the second pitcher of your truncata seedling, the droplets of water that have collected on the wings and hairs on the lid remind me of a Drosera.

    D_muscipula: Thanks! And I know about the pitchers and scissors, just can't use the hands too much today cuz I've had a case of the carpal tunnel attack in the past week...all I had the strength to do was clean up the orchids and neps a little.

    Oh, lucky you! I am desperately waiting for spring to come and my Sarrs to wake up. I'm going to be repotting/dividing soon too!

    Thanks for sharing your pics! Best of luck.

    Thez_yo: Those Sarrs wake up fast! I think mine have another month to go before they start growing.

    Nice pics. What kind of alata is that? Is it a typical?

    My flavas are sending up flowers but no pitchers.
