Thanks! I think ovata, like petiolata, is commonly overlooked for just sheer gorgeousness! They're like veitchii and spectabilis' doppelganger/cousins. Whenever I'm contemplating if I want a new plant, I drop over to Nepenthes Around the House and go look at Joel's pictures because he's been doing it for so long that he has a couple different good clones. That's how I realized petiolata was a plant I absolutely needed
Your balcony is a wonderland
And I love your pictures so hard and can't wait for the next update!

Ok.. packed a lot of stuff up today for the NASC, so that freed up some room to maneuver around and take some pics, and also repot some Heliamphora that needed it (omg poor ciliata, I'm so sorry for keeping you too dry..)
Here's my new H.nutans experiment - outside in San Diego in a saucer of water like the vft/dew/cobra minibog, because the pot was too big to fit in the terra:
here's a pic of the H.chimantensis again for Butch... notice the luscious moss!
and some volunteer dews in there
the H.heterodoxa x nutans that just opened up
some weeds in the minibog (cute ones at that though)
and the peristomes of Nepenthes that just opened up a few days ago
N.thorelli x campanulata getting some stripes too
as well as N.((veitchii x maxima) x veitchii) x campanulata
