    Nepenthes on Concrete Pavers

    Instead of buying pavers for the floor of the new shadehouse I decided to pour my own with concrete left over from the footings. After they had been set I used gravel to outline nepenthes in the wet concrete.



    What do you think? Can you guess the species? I'm considering doing this on all 32 if time permits.

    I'm pouring two pavers everyday so hopefully I will be updating daily with new pics!

    Thanks! I'm hoping to make 32 of the most iconic/favorite species! Hopefully they turn out okay.

    Actually the right is supposed to be an ovata. After laying all the pieces I took a step back and realized it looked a lot like a squat robcantleyi. I'm not sure what to call this one, its a little squat for robcantleyi and too round for ovata.

    ovata was my first guess actually but with the popularity of robcantleyi i figured that was a safer bet. You should do campanulata and rafflesiana next!

    If I had 32 pavers I would do campanulata, ampullaria, rafflesiana, dubia, inermis, platychila, maxima, alata, truncata, robcantleyi, veitchii, tenuis, jamban, jacquelinea, edwardsiana, hamata, nigra/tentaculata, burbidgeae, bicalcarata, macrophylla, villosa, glabrata, pervillei, mirabilis var. echinostoma, northiana, rajah, rowanae, ventricosa, faizaliana, hurrelliana, aristolochioides, attenboroughii, and bongso/spathulata. But that's just me

    Actually the more I look at it the more I'm leaning towards ovata. Anyways here's my tentative list...

    amp, raff, truncata, robcantleyi, veitchii, jamban, jacq, eddie, hamata, tentac, burb, bical, villosa, rajah, ventricosa, hurrelliana, singalana, ovata, spectabilis, sumatrana, gland, thorellii, merrilliana, lowii, ephip, lingulata, izumiae, flava, densiflora, sib, argentii, attenboroughii

    Some that I did not include were camp, inermis, platy, maxima, alata, northiana, and glabatra. Definitely classics but the above top them on my list of favorites.

    I am most worried about the toothy ones as the ridges might be hard to create with just pebbles. I am also worried about singalana, densiflora and izumiae as I foresee them all looking very similar. I'm hoping each species is easily recognized at first glance.
