    a first for me!

    cant believe this popped up, given that this is my alata's first summer outdoors, but it decided to flower! i havent had any of my neps do this for me yet, so i think its kinda sweet!



    oh, by the way, the picture sucks because it was taken at midnight. dont ask why.

    Me neither! My small ventricosa 'red' finally decided to make pitchers haha, congrats! I've seen Nep flower stalks in person at my bosses greenhouse though. I'm going to smell them next time to see if they smell bad lol.

    it does, yeah. i hadn't payed it much attention since i just picked it up at bachmans for like $14 as an experiment plant (worked out well, eh?) bachmans has it marked as alata tho... shame on them!

    For the sake of nep genetics, please don't. I can't think of any good hybrids made with ventrata, and trust me, I know a lot of hybrids.

    well, it wasn't vining when i got it, but it was somewhat large.

    and since this is my only flowering nep atm, i wont be doing any hybridizing.
