    Today was full of excellence. I was called in to get fitted for an actual costume for Howl-O-Scream, and the post office finally realized that this had arrived.

    Nepenthes burkei!!!! That you, jurow! I can finally stop drooling now, for a bit.

    This poor thing had been sitting at the postoffice for a week without any notification of its arrival. Thankfully it's still alive.
    Nepenthes smilesii popped open a new pitcher on Sunday, a bit smaller than the previous one. That's expected with being moved.

    And we have D. burmannii seed germination! They're so tiny! The N. burkei is starting to grow after the traumatic post office experience. N. smilesii will be making its journey to Meadowview tonight, where it should thrive.

    Thanks! I can see the new leaf peeling out now. I acquired some cuttings of a monsterous Nep that was donated to Meadowview very recently. I think it's a N. x mixta. There are 2 of them, each have 3-4 vines that are 6 feet long each! I'm just asking for trouble....

    Nepenthes x ventrata finally made a new pitcher for me after 3 months of nothing!

    N. maxima "Lake Poso" just opened a new pitcher yesterday. It's doing the typical maxima thing with only retaining one pitcher while in the rosette form.

    N. burkei has made some major progress!!!

    What can I say, I like variety. I'll have some pygmy dews popping up soon, too.

    Thanks! Hopefully they don't go into shock from being moved out of my apartment of pest extermination. The N. burkei has rebounded so nicely!
