    N. 'Lorraine is singalana x boschiana. You can't go wrong with those parents! N. burkei is a nice plant, just as easy as ventricosa. I have a feeling the striping on the boschiana will fade as it ages. It has red leaves right now, which I find really unusual, so we'll see how it matures. Part of me hopes that it's the locality the produces those monstrous 40cm tall uppers, another part doesn't. It's such a big plant!

    Thanks! The native purps are doing very well. One of the seedlings from last year will probably flower in the spring. It grew extremely fast! Hopefully I'll be able to cross it with another plant from the same site to get more of the genotype.

    A little something extra, not plant related.

    Are you serious?! They grew that fast? THis population is more robust than I expected....

    She was really hungry. I was removing the dried cricket carcasses from her enclosure earlier this week and she attacked the tongs. That's how I knew it was time to increase the food size.

    I have a singalana x boschiana, except it's called 'Parasol'. I didn't know there was another name for it. Two hybridizations by two different people, maybe?

    N. 'Lorraine' and 'Parasol' are made by the same person. I'm confused about the naming, too. They might be different phenotypes.
