    Aloha from Hawaii

    Hello! I've been a long time lurker here and finally created an account!

    I live in Honolulu HI, and have been into nepenthes for about a year now. It al started with a N miranda and now I have nine plants. I just recently visited Sam Estes's nursery and was amazed by all his beautiful plants! I also got to pick up a few.

    Here are some pictures of my plants. Enjoy!

    N truncata x maxima




    N miranda



    My personal favorite, N maxima (from Sam)







    N red leopard



    N marpessa

    Thanks for the warm welcome!

    Sam's nursery was awesome! So many amazing plants! I'd seen pictures of some of them from the photot archives on Aloha Nepenthes, but it was great to see them in person! I got to see the rokko tree, his dish gardens and all the fences covered in plants! I picked out a maxima, red leopard, marpessa, avalon, and rafflesiana to take back home. They were large plants and he did an excellent job of shipping them!

    As for the truncata x maxima, I bought that from Tristan's with a truncata. They are great plants, and since fertilizing them, I've noticed a humongous increase in pitcher size! The first picture is comparing two consecutive pitchers!

    I've talked to ellisonk001 about meeting up, but he's the only person I've met from Hawaii. I hope to get to know everyone here, from Hawaii or not!
