    Had a buddy come over who is into photography. He allowed me to use his camera to obtain some neat shots of my plants. I really like these and hope you folks enjoy looking at them as much as I have!

    Awesome shots Rich. It's fun playin' around with nice cameras. I love the different shots you can get, I think the Drosera shots look especially cool.

    Your 'Helen' x spectabilis appear to be moving a whole lot faster than mine, well done.
    And, I would be suspicious of those capillaris "Long Arm" plants. Some look like they "might" be typical capillaris, but the majority look like tokaiensis. Capillaris has a fairly distinct appearance, especially the "Long Arm" forms.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.

    Thanks. I've been keeping them in LFS/Perlite, on a water tray, under an extra-tall humidity dome. My 2-bulb T5-HO's are probably 12 or so inches above the plants. I grow them this way alongside other plants I'm propagating; mostly Drosera. They sometimes end up getting a light collateral mist when I spray my Drosera with a weak Maxsea 16-16-16 dilution but I don't have any control groups to compare it to so I cannot say whether I think that is the case.

    I am keeping an eye on the Capillaris long-arm. I've heard someplace that they can, at times, grow as a flat rosette, but under the right conditions will extend upright...But lately I have not had much luck with seed turning out to be the way it is labeled. They are still very young seedlings but the one on the bottom-left of the photo is growing the fastest so I've been keeping an eye on its characteristics.

    Good growing! Thanks for posting a pic of that complex EP ventricosa hybrid, I'm interested to see how different individuals of that cross turn out.

    They can grow as rosettes, but even then they have characteristics unmistakable. One of them: capillaris has petioles that stay the same width from center to lamina, tokaiensis gradually widen from center out (taking from the spatulata genes). I have a long arm capillaris, so I'm looking at them with something to compare to.

    Was totally blown away by the difference in pitcher size in my Nepenthes bongso below. If you look at the top of the pot you can see one of the original pitchers that the plant had when I got it several months ago. Since then I've been squirting a Maxsea 16-16-16 dilution into each pitcher 1-2x per month. Very eager to see how this pitcher looks once it opens!

    Really love the color on this one. Eager to collect the seeds and see how they turn out
