    I'm going to Costa Rica in a couple weeks, and am relying on a friend to water the plants. So this may be the last time we ever see any of them. LOL!

    OK, here's my N. ovata, which has a new basal that just made it's first pitcher in the first picture. In the next picture is the crazy vine it's making as well. You can see the pot on the back right of the rack, and the vine arching up, where it's about to hit the ceiling. There's only a leaf every foot, and it's speed suggests it's going to wrap around the room.



    Here's a whole-plant pic of my N. spectabilis. It's slow but steady, adn has two new pitchers forming on the back side:


    Here's some random foliage with N. spatulata x maxima and N. spectabilis x veitchii:


    Here's a happy N. singalana:


    Here's N. truncata x aristolochioides, whiich hasn't grown great for me, but has a nice pitcher:


    And finally, a little N. maxima x veitcii:

    Very nice Max! That N. truncata x aristolochioides looks nice for not growing well.

    Nice plants Caps. I hope you trust the person who is going to water them.

    Where are you going in Costa Rica? I spent over two years down there...two/three weeks at a time. Lots of good friends there. Absolutely beautiful country. Have you ever been up to Vulcan Arenal? I understand it is belching fire pretty regurlarly now.

    Man, Caps, you always have such lush plants.

    That ovata is nuts. I can't beleive that it made such a vine with just one pitcher! Must be driving you crazy.

    I really dig the pitcher on the left of the "random folliage" pic. Is that the spath x max or the spec x veitchii?

    Lauderdale, here's a pic I took the first time I saw Arenal. This "eruption" made a boom that shook the windows.
    This time we're just going to hang out on the beach in Tamarindo. Margaritas, sun, and surf.




    schloaty, thanks! The ovata actually has big pitchers; the little one is just from a new basal shoot. The big vine is coming from the original rosette.
