Super nice plants, that N truncata "paisan" looks like it is growing like a rocket!
the N glabrata siamese twins are developing
N aristolochioides is pitchering two weeks after repotting
Mr. N talangensis is looking for a Mrs.
Great, healthy plants - thanks for sharing.

My N. glabrata has taken many months to settle in to my grow space. It started out looking rather rough, with spotty foliage and the tendrils reluctant to develop pitchers. At the 6 month mark, however, the new foliage looks really good and I have started getting very nice pitchers of excellent quality, although I would say that no more than half the tendrils actually results in a pitcher forming. I'm guessing this is normal behavior for the species....or maybe it is still acclimating. I have the impression that some plants need a full year to settle in to a new home.
FYI, I believe mine is one of the BE clones.
great looking plants
Talangensis inflorescence? Hopefully you find something novel to cross it with. I love talangensis but I think it's about time we kept it away from ventricosa.
What sort of mix are you using, Pablo?
To all the glabrata growers, I've noticed this one not only thrives in cold conditions (as in makes large leaves without the red spots), but seems to really require a thick bed of sphagnum to bury its tendrils while at the rosette stage, otherwise pitcher production will be disproportionate to leaf growth. Mine seems to be pitchering well at the moment, but they're all hidden away, deep within the living carpet..
Truth as Circe. Error has transformed animals into men; is truth perhaps capable of changing man back into an animal?
Here's a pic of the talangensis proving it can rub its tummy and pat its head at the same time. it's got some lowers, almost done inflating an intermediate, starting to work on some uppers and blooming.
N tentaculata Mt. Murud
N lowii latest pitcher and the whole plant.
you can see a bit of exudate on the lid behind the big tendril to the right.
Talangensis looks outrageously happy. Nice tentaculata. Although mine is bigger, it still won't inflate any normal pitchers so I'm hoping for a turnaround soon. Nice update!
