    I have had a bit more time, and thought I would post a few new pics, most of which are lowland. These images are a bit grainier than some of the ones I've posted in the past, due to experimentation with a new lens.

    Here is another look at a new N. hamata upper pitcher. What is interesting about this is that as the vine grows longer, the pitchers produced show increasingly protuberant teeth on their peristomes! I am therefore ever more eager to see if this trend continues, and if so, how far it will go.

    \

    Here we see N. boschiana, which is an easily cultivated lowlander.



    This is a shot of a very colorful species, N. albomarginata:



    N. macrovulgaris is not often seen:



    This is a recent shot of a lower pitcher from N. merrilliana. It is about 22 cm in height, which is still pretty small for this species.



    This is an interesting variety of N. rafflesiana, called "Elongata".



    Finally, although this is not a Nepenthes, I am closing with an image of my favorite Drosera, N. falconeri:

    After looking at your photos, I see what you mean, Sheridan. I don't know what to say, really. The plant from which that cutting came is producing pitchers for me which are much larger than the one you've displayed. I would guess that the discrepancy in size could be due to a difference in environmental conditions, or possibly simply a consequence of the cutting you have taking a while to establish itself. Have you been feeding or fertilizing it?

    Hi Jason,

    Natural sunlight, with temps between 20 C and 35 C. Humidity is typically about 80%, but can go as low as 50% and as high as 95%.

    At least you get lowland conditions only in summer. I get ultra-lowland all year round! Perhaps in the cooler months this species will grow, although slowly.
