    More Nepenthes from Phil's GH

    One just can't go to Phil's and not be awed by his Neps. Unfortunately I did not get to take pics from the lowland chamber on this visit.. guess you are all gonna have to wait till I go back later this spring. In the meantime, these should hold you over.

    Enjoy,
    Steve


    OK technically these are orchids, but I cant see making an entire thread in the orchid forum just for these 2 pics...

    Hahaha I believe you are correct that is N. fusca.. I defer to Phil for the final answer to that. We rescued that pitcher right after I took that pic. Funny part is neither of us noticed that when I took it. Its just blind luck that I got a shot of it at all. I was taking pics of something else when I happened to notice that poor trapped pitcher.

    Also, in that same picture, do you notice the layer of styrofoam packing peanuts in the bottom of the pot? Phil uses those a lot in his Nep pots.

    Cheers

    As a part of the potting mix? It appears to just be at the base. Are there not chemicals that would break down and be toxic? Very interesting.
