Coelogyne x Bufordiense, the Black-Lipped Orchid
What I believe is the BE maxima once sold as eymae? Anyway, it's slithering along the floor under the CP bench!

Crappy shot of the BE maxima -- someone please help me ID this if you know!!
Neps hitting the summer growth spurt. I am aiming for a pitcher canopy this year.
This is why I recommend feeding Neps. See the nice, perfectly green leaves? This is one plant and I have pitchered every single leaf at once. The leaves stay green and do not senesce for a whole year! It's the result of well-timed feeding.
N. dyeriana beginning the epic climb that will turn my CP room over the next years into a jungle.
This BE maxima is almost 10 feet long and begins in the hanging basket below the bench. Mix of Turface, orchid bark, and a custom pine bark mix we make at the greenhouse. Has 5 pitchers under the bench, 3 at the level of the Sarrs, and 4 hanging on the wire above the Sarrs. 4 years old from a cutting from my friend.
All the best,

Amazing specimens of N. x Dyeriana and maxima - Gunung Lumut! Well grown, healthy, and beautiful pitchers. Nepenthes always do better in a greenhouse, of course, but it takes skill and dedication to raise specimens like that
The entire CP collection consisted of ~20 species of all genera when I started. Since we don't get a budget for new plants, I brought in my own seeds, divisions, and traded whenever I could for new stuff. It's somewhat more cobbled together than I'd like but we probably have ~100 species now.

N. x dyeriana finally is climbing!

And now for some non-carnies!
Clerodendrum ugandense or Blue Butterfly Bush
Myrmecodia tuberosa getting to be a fatty =)
Stylidium debile from SgtSarracenia, received as a few rosettes last fall
Blue Twinkle African Violet from Dragonseye (look at what it's become!!)
And lastly, one of the Ghost Orchids, Dendrophylax funalis. It's an orchid where the all stem growth is reduced and the roots are the only photosynthetic organs. And it's starting to feel up its neighbor.....
