    A really nice collection. It's good to see someone growing N. khasiana, and doing it so well. How do you manage to keep enough humidity going for your plants, especially your vft's?

    Quick answer: I don't I don't make any provisions for humidity except for my lowland Nepenthes which are growing in a terrarium, and my one Heliamphora. It is a very common misconception that all CP's need high humidity. I grow most of my plants on growing shelves which are open to the ambient air humidity, which in Utah is usually beween 30 (days) and 35-40% or so (nights) inside. I grow several Sarrs and flytraps outside in the same (or lower, in the summer) humidity and they grow very well. While admitedly humidity does play a role, its importance is minescule to having quality light in the right quantity, and plenty of clean water, which keeps them hydrated (as opposed to humidity keeping them hydrated).

    Oh, and thanks for the nice comments

    Here's a few more pics:

    Sarracenia flowers: no real pitchers to speak of yet, except for one lone, small, S. alata pitcher. Cooler temps really hold their growth back in the spring here.

    Overall cooler temps holding back the flytraps too. And they're a littel sunburned after first bringing them out, but they'll recover

    Meanwhile, My flytraps under grow lights inside are in full growth... and full bloom...(plants to the left are blooming)

    And... My N. singalana just opened a new, biggest pitcher yet. Look at that peristome!

    And a couple cool pics of Aloe tree at San diego zoo for kicks, I really like how these turned out.

    The Aloe pics are awesome! Can't wait for the singalana to color up.

    Here's some pics of new plants, and bigger old plants, etc. Enjoy!

    N. bicalcarata in closet lowland growing area
    071
    073

    N. albomarginata kuching spotted
    063

    N. rafflesiana giant red form, clone 88
    060

    N. albomarginata green form- getting much bigger
    059

    D. capensis broad leaf form- forming a nice stem
    058

    Good desktop background photo? Sort of abstract feeling, don't you think?
    056

    Almost 2 year old N. ventricosa seedlings-now young plants
    055

    Experimental balcony plants (N. 'alli'i', D. capensis and D. multifida extrema). They're doing better than the indoor plants (the dews at least)
    051

    Huge flower scapes on outdoor D. multifida extrema
    053

    Deformed N. ramispina pitcher- Been going on for a while and I have no clue why. It's in the same conditions where my other neps are thriving. Frustrating... Any thoughts people?
    046

    A ceph photo for good measure
    044

    N. 'judith finn' looking pleasant
    041

    Beautiful scrambling mess
    023

    The main scrambling culprit: N. maxima 'giant tentana'
    035

    Grabbing hold
    036

    N. glabrata
    029

    031

    030

    H. minor being overtaken by D. capensis. I don't know how those capensis seed got in there! Not complaining though; don't think the heli is either.
    022

    Finally, a N. hamata (AW 3)! Put on a couple nice pitchers already
    020

    Waiting for D. regia 'big and easy' roots to sprout
    019

    Insane lighting in new closet lowland setup
    015

    N. truncata 'pasian' getting bigger now by the month. This pitcher is six inches tall. The last one was probably only 4 inches or so.
    018

    New D. tracii acclimating. Leaf cuttings in the bag to the right. I had to take off a lot of the foliage because it was wilting from too much water stress.
    016

    And last but not least, new huge Nep. from local nursery. Was only labled as "Nepenthes 10" ". I cantacted the company of origin and all they said was that it's a ventricosa hybrid. If that's true, then the ventricosa is very diluted in the cross, with a lot of maxima parentage. My immediate thought was N. 'mixta', but looking at online photos that doesn't look like a match either. N. mixta and miranda have spotting INSIDE the pitcher, while my plant does not. Anyone have a better idea what it is?

    I'd say you probably do have 'Miranda' as that mystery plant. Upper pitchers rarely get the coloration lowers do, and that includes major lack of spotting inside. Wonderful plants all around though!
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    Hmmm... I remain unconvinced. All the pictures of N. 'miranda' upper pitchers I can find still have the spotting inside the pitchers; though, like you said, the general coloration is much less colorful. Not discounting it though

    Case in point: The peristome also shows more striping. Mine has no striping at all.

    I guess the lack of striping on the peristome and lack of spots inside the pitcher is consistent with ventricosa parentage.
