    Late Fall Pitchers (Photo Laden) . . .

    Here are a few larger shots of some of the pitcher plants from this Fall. The Cephalotus are slowing their growth a bit and now beginning to produce their "vegetative" flat leaves; and the Heliamphora are growing more rapidly with the arrival of colder weather -- yet another reason why I largely prefer them to Sarracenia. No phyllodia , no dying back to the rhizome, no assumptions from family and friends that you've killed half the garden . . .

    Cephalotus follicularis cv. "Hummer's Giant"






    Heliamphora heterodoxa x ionasii (a naturally-occurring hybrid)


    H. nutans (Tramen) x ionasii (a naturally-occurring hybrid)


    H. heterodoxa x minor (the ever-expanding)


    H. folliculata



    H. ionasii, H. sp. "Angasima", and a young first pitcher of H. chimantensis


    H. sarracenioides (developing its first adult pitcher -- finally)

    Man, I'm so envious of your Cephalotus.

    Wow, I love all of those plants! I like how the helis all have a nice red tint.

    Unbelievable. Those photos are amazing. Maybe my blood sugar is low, but I'm serious when I say that some of those pictures are just memorizing.

    Thanks for those kind words. I was digging through some recent photos and thought that I would post a few -- more than a few as it turned out.

    I am still digging through thousands of slides (anyone here still remember Fujichrome® and Kodachrome® -- both the slide film and the Paul Simon song?) from the early 1990s, trying to find traces of my backpacking, slack-jawed punk days in Venezuela and Guyana with lots of Brocchinia and Heliamphora shots . . .

    So...many...helis....

    Do you ever make crosses yourself? I've never seen a nutans "Tramen" hybrid.

    I go to San Francisco about twice a year - maybe we could meet up sometime?
