i dont know! did most of the moving around in the night!
N. belii x TM:
N. sibuyanensis x truncata...look at the unusual appendage at the bottom of the peristome; I have never seen this before (even the photo on Exotica's website doesn't show this feature):
N. thorelii x TM:
N. ventricosa x (clipeata x ventricosa):
hey! your seem to have more green than mine! well i have the red and brown variations. can we get a close up on one of the good pitchers on that one? please!!!!
Nepenthes (stenophylla x lowii) x (xRokko x veitchii):
Here you go Santos:Originally Posted by [b
These are all from 1 plant...there is noticable difference in coloring on individual pitchers.
yeah i guess youre right! here are the plants that i have....
the first one that i got...
then the new one...
well i think it turns out that the brown one follows after the clip because of the brown. the other one has more of a ventricosa color but that one has a very domed lid, the brown one doesnt have one as much...
Do you know if these were seed grown? *Still, the varience on the same plant makes me think pitcher age and light levels are at play.
Your 2 plants definitely look different though...
Most likely seed grown, but these all seem more alike, than different. I agree that lighting and age makes a big difference on color, but I think there is also some genetics going on here as I've never seen a red pitcher go brown until it was dying. Here's a pic of mine
Here's the type of differences you can see with seed grown plants. My 3 vent x TM from the previous order:
and this order:
and just to contrast mine fro mthe previous order with Mike's new plants:
(stenophylla x lowii) x (Rokko x veitchii)
and ventricosa x (spectabilis x northiana) - love that orange
A day without Nepenthes is like a day without sunshine
Great photos Steve; they really do look different...this contributes to the Nep obsession...you really never know what to expect next.
