    Hi all,
    had quite some nice pics, all relatively young plants, lowlanders, and grown outdoors (rather shady though) here in Singapore!

    First up, merriliana, red variant


    Miranda uppers


    Always popular bicalcarata,


    Sumatrana, this is the first pitcher, this plant is pretty slow, is this normal?


    Macrovulgaris, still small, but interesting lowlander/intermediate


    rafflesiana BE-99, with green merriliana


    tomoriana, very slow too


    campanulata, this one is also very fussy, does it like a wetter or looser/drier mix, can I assume 2nd? Does this usually grow as an eppiphyte or just in small amounts of soil?

    in quite a bad shape!

    germinating seedlings of mirabilis X xcoccinea, has anyone seen such a hybrid before, it is 'home-made' and I was guessing it should have been done before but cant find it on BobZ photofinder. Does anyone know how I can get info on this hybrid?

    (SGD 0.50 has 1 inch diameter)

    Lastly, one successful highlander grown here. (sorry but this is already and achievement for me [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img] )
    sibuyanensis, about 1.5 cm only!


    Enjoy ! Please comment on how I can improve [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
    Thanks

    Hi,
    my conditions are basically typical lowland 65-100 %humidity, 24-32 degrees C temps, and I use 50% shade cloth. But this time of the year is very wet and cloudy...
    Thanks

    Very nice pics. Like Julian said, it'd be cool if you'd keep us posted on those hybrid seedlings- I imagine that they could turn out looking quite interesting! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Hi,
    well we are located about 1.something degrees off the equator so the weather stays like that all the time... but there is a rainy season [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
    I am also quite excited about the hybrid, even if it isnt new. But I think it would look more or less like a mirabilis 'red' with a striped peristome. (just a wild guess)
    Thanks

    Lam,nice pitchers u have.The campanulata needs wet but well drain soil of loose dead leaves and debris.That was my observation in one of the trip in central Borneo on sarawak side.
