Life is good in the nep room these days. We've had consistent cool, foggy weather, and in those conditions I can close up the grow room and get it to about 80 degrees. I open it up at night and it drops to 52 or so. Everyone seems to like it, so I went a bit nuts with the camera.
Here are some new pitchers. First, N. tentaculata:
Here's the latest N. x Predator and N. ventricosa x TM. The pred is 13 inches, my biggest pitcher ever. w00t!
Here's the latest sib x TM. It's still small, but I'm excited about this hybrid:
Here's the latest and biggest mystery lowii hybrid I have (acquired as N. burkeii x villosa as a pitcherless cutting at a BACPS meeting)
Check out N. ventricosa x aristolochioides growing outdoors. It powered through the winter - you can see the slightly deforemed couple of leaves when we had our freezing spell.
Speaking of growing through the cold, N. globosa is happy as a clam growing in highland conditions. This photo doesn't show the pitchers (not as good as you warm growers!), but you can see the healthy growth:
Here's N. macrophylla:
And finally, here's a new one on the fresh basal shoot from my N. spathulata x maxima. I crossed this with N. khasiana, can't wait to see how it looks!
