    Cephalotus with Nectar loaded on peristome- pics from May

    Hey everyone,
    Here are some recent pics of my Cephalotus, which really seem to love the cooler conditions in my basement in the spring. At this time each year, I've had at least 1 or 2 pitchers produce nice amounts of nectar on the peristome. I've neglected the plant over the past 3 years, feeding it only three times a year since I've been away from home quite a bit...so unfortunately they haven't grown very much, but I'm very happy with how they look.
    I took a ton of pics so it took quite a while to whittle them down to the good ones- so finally, here they are (no photo editing was done and this nectar was produced entirely by the plant):

    Very nice. I have seen young plants exhibit that characteristic from time to time, especially in highly-humid, cool conditions . . .

    Gorgeous.. love those dews! I've also got a clone here with an over drippy lip.. not as colorful as yours, but some day soon I hope it'll get there.
    Is the D. prolifera I see in there as well?
