    Well I was all set to say, "nice thumbs", but there weren't any. Nice plants, anyways!

    Very nice variety. What mix are you using for your Nepenthes? Peat, perlite, some LFS, and Orchid Bark? What grade of perlite are you using? Some of those chunks look huge!

    Thanks! Most pots are straight-up 1perlite to 1lfs mix. The perlite is "medium" sized coarse perlite from a random place that makes it somewhere near/in San Diego (so size is really random because it's really dust->huge sized mix ). The pots that look like more than that mix are a handful of "orchid mix" tossed in if the pot is big and I think it needs some help not compacting, and that's usually mostly some sort of bark and maybe charcoal and more perlite (it's out of a pre-mixed bag from the store), and sometimes if it's something that needs more humidity I'll toss a little peat in to keep the mix wetter longer. I think I still have 2 or 3 pots with around 2 cocohusk to 1lfs, that I used to pot in when I kept them inside, but the only things that I can remember right now left in that are N.bongso and N.ventricosa X TM.

    Thanks for sharing! Congratulations on the upcoming U. nelumbifolia bloom (it takes a long time to progress - be patient) & the super-healthy H. neblinae f. parva. That one looks like it made a big jump from juvie pitchers to the mature type - nice. (let me know when you're ready to trade that puppy for an H. minor)
    All the best,

    You're welcome. Thanks - I guess I'll ignore it for a few more weeks and hope for the best on the Utric . And thanks on the H. neblinae f. parva - AW resent one to me and that's the one that already had nice big mature pitchers...the other made 2 mature ones for me recently but I think it's working on another immature one right now ...and fo sho I'll trade, only if it's for immature pitchers H.minor

    .... awwww mannnnn, that'll probably kill the trade. Most of my spares have mature pitchers and the one H. minor with juvie pitchers has location info - which i'm sure you don't want. Darn!! .... so close ...
