    Old topic, old dews!

    I posted pics of these once before - don't remember how long ago. Anyway, they just keep going and going. A couple older 'dews that I just leave alone.

    First, D. slackii:

    Oh!!!!!!

    I love the skirts of dead leaves, it just gives them a certain desirable look to me.

    those are spectacular. i absiolutely must get ahold of some admirabilis once dormancy is over.
    if i were ruler of the world, anyone who defined a nepenthene as a "companion plant" to orchids would be fired from a cannon atop mt. kinabalu.

    Ya know, my D. admirabilis is doing that skirt of dead leaves thing... and I was wondering if that was a bad sign. So I guess that is normal phenomenon? Great looking plants!

    Thats one way for a ground-hugging rosette to reach for the light


    Looks like a bunch of cycads, like clint said. I wonder if the stem is slef-supporting without the leaves to hold it up?
    that makes no logic

    the leaves most probably help keep it up, my aliciaea is doing the same, it spurted a second growth point and it topples due to not having support on one side when i removed the 2nd point.
    Grow list...
