    As I get into the first winter I've had my new growroom, I'm happy to find that highland temps are pretty easy to maintain. By keeping the door to the garage closed, and the fan in the window only blowing in at night, I'm getting 78 during the day and 50 at night. Well, about 48 last night. The plants are happy. Here's a quick couple of pics from tonight:

    N. jacquelinea and U. reniformis. This is just a little guy:


    N. hamata baby, hairy as can be (but not "hairy hamata"!)


    Here are a trio of happy pitchers. Two N. veitchii x lowii and an about-to-open N. ramispina. The N. veitchii x lowii pitchers last forever, and the larger one here has a hairy lid and even some of the white crystal stuff that forms on N. lowii lids.


    And finally, not a nepenthes, but a nice H. ionasii currently flowering:

    Great photos!
    Did the H. ionasii arive with adult pitchers? Over here (UK & Europe) you can only get tiny plants of that species with junvenile pitchers that take forever to grow!!

    cheers

    That baby hamata looks like he stuck his finger in the electrical socket! Very nice looking CPs. Very nice color!

    Capslock ,
    nice plants! And nice pitchers for incoming Christmas!
    I am interested in knowing something more about your jaqueline and ramispina.
    Can you post pictures of the whole plant and tell their age and growing conditions?
    Thanks!
