    Update!

    N. x ventrata put out a lot of pitchers recently. Hopefully it continues to grow after I have to move it back home for break.

    Nepenthes burkei opened its first pitcher under my care! Well, it opened one previously, but it looks like a Picasso painting because of the shipping trauma.

    And now for some purps.

    I need to retake the rest of the Sphagnum pics since they came out blurry, but here's a sample of the Newport News Sphag that I collected.

    D. burmannii is gaining in size more.

    Just for fun, N. burkei with a highly deformed "Picasso" trap from it's 2 week wait in the post office and a normal, beautifully formed pitcher.

    The description isn't kidding when it says N. burkei has a bulbous bottom. There's no doubt this is burkei and not ventricosa.

    And some Sphagnum I hand collected and have in culture.
    Sphagnum "Newport News #1" No idea what species it is yet.

    Nice pygmies!!

    Are you sure those are D. burmannii? They looks a lot like D. capensis "alba".

    I hope they're not D. capensis "alba". I've moved them closer to the lights to see if they show more burmannii like leaves.

    I fed Nepenthes some coffee today. Hopefully I'll see a size jump soon. The N. maxima "Lake Poso" is making noticeable large and more colorful leaves. A new trap should be opening soon.

    Ooh I love the mosses! I'm jealous of your burkei too... I wish it did something for me. I got one from BE that did nothing and now the one from AW is doing close to nothing too

    Yay, another moss fan! For some reason I can find the stuff very easily in the field. S. molle isn't nearly as colorful here as it is in higher lighting. Hopefully I'll have enough to trade around soon.

    I've noticed N. burkei likes it a bit warmer than most would think. It's not that picky of a plant from my short experience with it. I'm hoping to work the burkei into mature pitchers by next year.

    Finally, D. capillaris "long arm" has germinated! Something else did something, but I forgot what it was.....

    I think my killifish spawned today. So not ready for this...
