    Oh, love the truncata x spectabilis. I have one and it looks pretty much the same. This next leaf should have a massive pitcher. It is a really fast grower and has great looking pitchers. A must in the collection of any truncata or striped peristome fanciers.

    Very nice Brokken! How many neps would you say you have now? Just curious how big your collection is cuz it doesn't seem like you have a bad one in the bunch.

    Hi Fred,

    Maybe 70 or so? Some of them are still putting out small pitchers and I don't photograph them often. Also, I've reached critical mass at this point so if something is not pitchering or growing well for me, I have a low tolerance for them and I get rid of them in time. For every something new that comes into the GH, at least one plant has to go out. My way of bettering the collection. Also as plants get bigger, I have to make a decision as to what has to go in order to make room for something showy that works inside my GH.

    Here's also a few more pics that should have gone out in my last update:

    I just finished doing some cleanup. This is the not so pretty side of neps. I work very diligently to keep my plants looking their best. This includes trimming away dead pitchers:

    I know the feeling. My pitchers start showing the slightest sign of death, straight to the garbage they go. One of the downfalls of OCD.
