    Found this tiny little guy hiding on my S. flava. He blends in really well! Anybody know the species?

    Bow to your new Spathulata x Rob overlord.


    Nepenthes sibuyanesis made a glorious pitcher, when sun shines through it is of a very obvious rasta coloration.


    Nepenthes ventricosa "Red" is starting to out grow its shell.




    "Luke, join the darkside. Together we will rule the universe."


    My latest scooby doo mystery, my ventircosa "black" is swarming with ants even though its inside of a sealed grow tent on my 2nd story window. My ventricosa "red" is also crawling with them, none of my other plants are.


    Im worried about my burkei, it seems stuck in a tiny pitcher rut.


    Both N. ventricosa(arist x thorelli) are getting biiiig.




    "Im Batman."


    N. "Red Leopard"


    My D. dichrosepala gemmae are all grown up now :'(



    More flowers for the Flower God.



    D. capensis "Wide" seedlings are not nearly as vigorous as their D. capensis "alba" comrades.



    The current resident Drosera, my binata are outside now.

    N. burkei seems to like it slightly on the cooler side than ventricosa. I had to move mine down to the lower parts of my greenhouse so it would grow well.
    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.

    Good to know! My burkei is actually next to my sibyuanesis though, which likes cool temps even more and it seems happy. So I dont think cool temps is the problem.

    Thanks! Though admittedly the Spathulata x Rob was always toothy ;P

    In other news I count 5 S. Jonesii germinations. Woo!

    The great ritual suicide of the ants seems to have come to a close, they have dissapeared as quickly and mysteriously as they came, leaving nothing but well fed plants and corpses in their wakes.

    Seriously like, hundreds and hundreds of corpses. There must be at least 200 in my ventricosa "Red" alone. Here are some pictures of everyone's stuffed bellies! (Plainly visible by the very dark areas near the bottom of the pitchers.)

    sibuyanesis

    ventricosa "Black"

    ventricosa "Red"


    These seem to be the only plants that the phantom ants were attracted to. So to compensate I gave all my other Nepenthes (And a few of the larger Drosera) cut up meal worms. Bon appetit.

    Also, sibuyanesis made a cute pitcher:

    I tried to get a picture of inside of ventricosa "Red" but I really could not get any good angle to take a picture. But you guys will have to take my word for the black stew that is in there right now, nothing but a pitch black soup of dead ants. Im still baffled by where the heck they came from.
