As far as I'm aware, that species is one of the most drought tolerant air plants so I'm sure it can handle a lot of neglect. They do grow extremely slowly though.
An update on my N. albomarginata cuttings at just over 3 months:
The first pitcher certainly has better color now.
It seems like there's pretty good root mass at 3 months, and the second pitcher is well on its way to maturity and may reach that point before the first new leaf even unfurls...
A pitcher from my poi dog - possibly N. ventricosa x angasanensis.
A very fuzzy tendril from the same plant.
I've never seen a silver gray nepenthes pitcher before. It's amazing! Thanks for the help with the fuzzball.
The profile pic that you see above is my actual photo. I am a hyper-intelligent snake that has learned to use the internet and I will eventually rule you all.
Just kidding..... Or am I?
Nice albo! I've always liked the contrast between the white 'collar' and the blackish pitcher
The first new leaf developing on my U. humboldtii after 2 months.
What the plant has done up until now...
The newest pitcher on my N. ramispina, approximately twice as tall (about 3") as the previous one and with better color. I'm hoping it keeps improving as I understand N. ramispina pitchers can be nearly black.
If it's not a hybrid, ramispina upper pitchers are naturally more gray/green than black; it's only the lowers that are the really dark color
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.
Time for some more pictures!
N. "Triffid" is positively drooling.
Flowers of an Allium of some sort.
Verbena flowers, playing around with close-up filters for macro. I'm not particularly impressed with the quality, at least for these cheaper filters. They cause a lot of chromatic aberration and have a very soft focus.
Things have been rather quiet on the plant front, so here's some critters instead:
A tiny snail in my U. pubescens pot.
Not sure what this is, but I've been finding quite a few of them on berries I've been picking.
...and here's a mole I found in my LIVING ROOM yesterday.
