You don't know an angry Nepenthes glabrata until you've seen mine.
If that hates you, then mine probably wants to kill me.
Hooray! My glabrata ploy worked. I knew if I showed how much it hated me Sam would take it in..
I was so excited to find some new growth going on, I had to take some pics..
I'll dive right in with the highlight of my day.. N. 'Whisper' striped has had a tough time acclimating, but it finally has a nice strong growth point going.
After picking up the pot for a closer look, I found quite the surprise hiding in the back!!
Even a little node starting there..
Then my next big surprise was my H. 'Tequila' showing that it's happy and acclimated.
Freshly opened veitchii K pitcher
oh so hairy chaniana x veitchii
I still just love seeing these two pitcher happily side by side.. albomarginata 'Green' & vogelii
Happy little cobra..
Vigorous Clumping moving right along..
This one is finally starting to pick up after getting acclimated.
This one died back to nothing after arriving, but then just popped out a dozen growth points over night.
'Top Hat' getting some color finally.. and the Roridula in the corner is already putting up some new growth.
Wish 'Miranda' stayed just like this.. Think I'll enter it in the POTM to preserve this point of the pitcher development.
Always nice to see growth from a new plant.. truncata x veitchii HL
sanguinea 'Orange' update
cup trap craziness..
D. brevifolia for Lois
Hating this LFS.. think I'm gonna swap it out.. again. SG villosa..
Pot of D. capillaris 'Long Arm' giving me payback for chopping off a dozen flower stalks a couple weeks ago.
Amazing! I love your collection. Just several questions. Are you growing albomarginata 'Green' under highlander conditions? What's your growing conditions for the villosa (especially the temperature)? Btw: I think your Miranda' has similar pattern as my x "dyeriana".
My Grow-List and Want-List
If you know other unique plants that can walk, can talk, can sing, or can eat people, please tell me and I definitely want to get one.
The villosa is still small right now. So I can grow it in a 2.5 gallon bag for added humidity. It's also in front of the cooler, so it get's a bit more chilly than everything else. Daytime temp is about 78*, with a nighttime temp in the 50*s.
My x dyeriana absolutely hated me.. so I sold it to one of my friends last week.
I also just got a large walk in incubation chamber from Michigan State. It controls temp, humidity, light intensity, and CO2.. which is what I'm going to use to grow my UHL's in from here on out.
I really like your Darlingtonia californica and your Heliamphora.
I've never been so happy to wake up in all my life!!!
Quite the jungle you've got goin on...I love it!
looks great bro, I want to see some pics of the incubation chamber when you get it set up for sure!
