    Sweet plants man! I'm really impressed by the N. glabrata. It makes me miss mine.

    I love the plants, the nepenthes are awesome, but i really love the cephalotus, the coloration on the lid is just awesome. How long have you had the cephalotus? Is it pretty easy to grow inside, or did you have to provide any special accomidations for it?

    I've had the Ceph since about his last March or so, and it arrived with immature traps. As you can see, it has grown A LOT since then. I've been surprised how easy it has been for me. As with most of my other plants (excuding the lowland Neps) I have it on an open grow rack with three T-12 lighting fixtures (six bulbs) about 7 or so inches above it. As I described to someone else in an earlier post on this thread, it is watered using wicks going from the bottom of the pot into a tray full of water, though I do occasionally top water it as well. I wanted to be extra sure not to have the roots too wet which would make them rot.
    That's it! No terrarium, no provisions for humidity (I have an average of about 40% humidity in my house). It's in a nice tall and wide pot, which I think is helping it as well.
    I'm glad you enjoyed the photos

    I have a small Lake Poso form. It's maybe 3" wide right now.

    You main coon is huge....

    I like the color on N. distillatoria, very unusual. Gotta love the way Ruby Throat looks in the fall.

    Yeah, that's one thing I really like about it. It's more of a coppery brown color as opposed to the normal reds and purples we're used to with Nepenthes. I never would have thought to buy it actually, but I got it in a three for one deal, where you had to buy all three of N. bicalcarata, N. ampularia 'harlequin', and N. distilatoria together. At that time I didn't have any lowlanders and I couldn't pass it up!

    As a side note, while my bicalcarata grows moderately quickly, I'm slightly disapointed at its growth rate. I'm keeping it warm and humid 24/7 , and put it in a much bigger pot, and still it hasn't bolted like so many said it would under those conditions. The ampularia has actually grown more. Maybe the bicalcarata will have a growth spurt one of these days, but perhaps it's good it hasn't grown enormous though, for space reasons.
