    Black Friday Nepenthes shopping

    I was up in San Fran and decided to stop by Peter D Amato's nursery/collection and take some pics

    and get some new additions too!! I forgot to bring my D70 so I only got a few Iphone pics.

    Nepenthes eymae struttin its amazing lowers. This clone was the first ever plant stumbled upon...no wonder they noticed it!!

    Nepenthes Bicalarata

    Photobucket

    three new hybrids in the making

    Photobucket

    A darlingtonia bog. Looks like they are taking dormancy just fine.

    Photobucket

    Me holding up some big pitcher. Damn fly in my eye!!! Should-a been in the pitcher...

    Photobucket

    A closer look at the behemoth

    Photobucket

    Another hybrid flower with 5 hybrids in the making...

    Photobucket

    Some big random pitcher amongst the foliage

    Photobucket

    A closer look

    Photobucket

    Another hybrid in the making...looks like Damon is making use of the many inflorescence that come out

    Photobucket

    Another hybrid in the making...but this one is my creation from the pollen I sent them.
    If all goes right N. X Aeneas (X rokko X Bical) should be ready in a few months.
    No big development has been noticed yet, but I hear Bical crosses tend to start ripening very slowly, so still high hopes for this one!!! A closer look reveals a tiny bit of development over the past month.

    Photobucket

    Looks like there could be a lot of seeds from this one. It's probably the biggest female flower in the greenhouse right now. More seeds means more giveaways!!

    Photobucket

    What I got

    Nepenthes ventricosa 'red' female

    Photobucket

    And N. X Ille De France male ...quite colorful

    Photobucket

    I came back with my new plants to see that my S. Leah Wilkerson F1 seeds had dried out while I was gone . I poured some water in and 12 hours later I noticed that several seeds were sprouting. YAY!!

    Photobucket


    Thats all I got for pics this time. I would have taken more pics but I only had an iPhone cam... and with a house full of nepenthes I got distracted. Hope you enjoyed

    The pictures worked for me but it took a minute for them to load.

    Wait a minute...your computer may be slow at loading pics

    It doesn't work until it says "what I got" up until then it's just the little blue box with a question mark
