I didn't realize that Nepenthes reinwardtiana could be speckled. You have an interesting variety.
My new favorite thread! So many unusual sticky plants displayed in one place....must be heaven!
On the spiralis with the many leaves, is it possible that it is graminifolia or something different? Can you offer any advice on D. spiralis? I recently lost 1 of only 2 and I want to do my last one right!
My Grow/Want Lists
-The horticulturalist formerly known as Shortbus-
Fernando Rivadavia has seen photos of my plants and confirmed them all as D.spiralis. I've had that plant much longer than the other 2. It's probably just my conditions but, time will tell. I grow all my SA Drosera the same way. They're grown in trays in the basement where it always stays cool and fairly humid under T-5's. They're in 6" deep pots with a media of milled lfs, sand and perlite. They all seem very happy and flower very well for me.
You have some beautiful, beautiful plants. I especially liked that pic of "P.esseriana", that looked almost like a pink carnation or something. :P
Those nepenthes on the first page are also fantastic. I'm in the process of getting a 20 gal. terrarium set up so that I can attempt keeping some.

The "PNW Pot" with Darlingtonia californica - Siskyou Mountains, Drosera rotundifolia - Skagitt Co, Drosera x anglica - Washington and soon to be Pinguicula macroceras in the open space in the front. Darlingtonia is not the easiest plant to grow in New England but, here's the proof that it can be done with minimal extra effort.
Another group of plants starting to occupy my obsession.....The Ant Plants.
Cephalotus follicularis "Hummer's Giant". I really need to change the bulbs above the Cephs.

Drosera spiralis: The leaves are now about 12" long.

Pinguicula sp. Pachuca

The 2 that are still up are recent imports from late last winter. Sometimes it takes them a while to go down the first year.
It's funny about the ant plants becoming a new obsession. I'm feeling the same way.
Truth as Circe. Error has transformed animals into men; is truth perhaps capable of changing man back into an animal?
