    I have not had much time to participate here lately, but some unforseen events have given me a bit of time to take some new images and post them here. So, here are a few of the latest....

    An upper pitcher of N. hamata from a cutting I rooted last year. This plant has produced a number of upper growth cuttings, and this is one I kept around, rather than trading it away.



    Here is a close-up shot of the peristome.



    Here are a couple of varieties of N. tentaculata. The first is from G. Rajah, and the second from G. Niut.





    This is an N. ramispina lower pitcher.



    This next image is a close-up shot of one of my favorite species, N. tenuis. This is a rather small plant, and its pitchers have a very unique, squat appearance. It's very easy to grow, and seems quite at home in typical intermediate to highland conditions. The pitcher shown is only about 3 cm tall.



    A nice, robust N. macrophylla pitcher...



    An upper pitcher of N. lavicola, approximately 8 cm in height.



    A shy N. clipeata pitcher peeks out from behind its mother leaf.



    A lower pitcher of N. platychila, revealing the rather marked contrast between itself and the rather beautiful uppers of this species.

    Here are a few more....

    An upper pitcher of a species I really like: N. ovata.



    N. ventricosa is a common plant, but this yellowish variety is kind of cool:



    Here is a matching reddish variety....



    N. muluensis is really pretty, and here it is nestled in a bed of moss. Both moss and Nepenthes have been growing well.



    A close-up of one of the pitchers....



    Finally, I close with an image of an especially beautiful variety of N. veitchii -- definitely my favorite variety of this species.



    Hope that you've enjoyed the images. Good growing!

    Hello,
    those are beautiful plants, very exciting species like tenuis and platychilla.
    About the ramispina, am I wrong to say it looks like the nat hybrid with macfarlanei?
    thanks

    Welcome back Jeff,

    Ohh Gorgeous photos of some stunning plants. That N. muluensis pot with the moss is fantastic!

    The N. ramispina looks like the Wistuba plants I got a few years back. Appears to me a hybrid as well. The MT and BE plants I have flair noticeably at the top of the pitcher and have a clear mint green pitcher interior.

    T
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
