    Here are a few shots of my Nep collection before winter rolls in and messes everything up.

    These plants have all been grown out on my patio in full sun till about noon and then bright shade the rest of the day. Humidity tends to be fairly low in the daytime (20-40% in summer) but climbs into the upper 70% range at night. Temps are generally mid to upper 80s daytime and 50s and 60s at night.

    Winters are chilly here and in the past my Neps have not been particularly happy about it. I expect to lose all the existing pitchers and probably will not see much in the way of growth at all for a few months.

    Anyway.. here are the pics... hope you enjoy.

    First up, Nepenthes alata "Bochiana Mimic". This is the plant as it was when I got it back in July.


    And here it is today.. The pitcher just popped open on this one today. Its at least double the size of the last one. Hopefully I will get a chance to take pics when it is fully developed. Look at that monster pitcher!!




    Next is a cool little N. ventricosa x aristolochoides


    I still am not 100% positive on the ID for this one. It has been said that this is probably N. x miranda






    This next one I bought at the same time as the one above. I assumed at the time that the plants were identical but this one has a different shape to the peristome and the pitchers are smaller and face away from the sun. Any ideas?

    Edit: I also just noticed that the pitcher is speckled on the inside as well as out. The other plant does not have that at all. This is definately a different plant than the one above... I'm still open to ideas on what this guy really is.

    The N. x "Miranda" is not Miranda...im guessing it has some x rokko in it.

    Alex, they came from Nurserymens Exchange.

    Dustin, that pitcher is a little premature yet. Here is a mature pitcher from the same plant.



    And the entire plant...


    While I am here I might as well add a few others...

    N. ventrata



    This plant I believe is N. ventricosa.



    I believe this one is also ventricosa.

    Wow, nice plants Steve!! Urgh, you're right about the winter though, its frosty over here

    I've gotten numerous plants from Nurserymen's Exchange from retail giants like HD, they all came with the wrong care instructions however.....(ie a Sarr came with Nep Care tag)

    That is certainly not a Miranda. Very nice plant, though!
