    Hey,
    I went out to take pictures of a monster ventricosa x lowii pitcher that opened and took some other pics at the same time. All of the vent x lowii pics came out terribly [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img] but I figured I'd post these.

    First, N. ephippiata, which is a solid, fast grower for me:


    Next, nothing much to see here, but it's growing so fast I thought I'd get a pic while it's still small. N. platychilla:


    Here's one I've had a while. It's just starting to undergo a good growth spurt. N. spectabilis x ventricosa. Love the peristome colors. They hypnotize me.


    Here's a "weed" nepenthes. This will grow anywhere. N. x Koto "effulgent":



    N. lowii is the slowest grower ever. But each leaf is bigger, and each pitcher is a little better. I have no problem waiting on this one, which was dime-sized when I got it.


    I love this N. maxima var "superba". It keeps making great pitchers:


    Finally, N. x Predator, which got me a second place ribbon at the BACPS annual show. I'm number two!!!

    It's superb! Seriously, I think it's just a particular variation on an extremely variable species.
