    N. rafflesiana... uppers!

    Hello, I was given some pretty nice neps not too long ago because he couldn't really provide them with what they needed. One of those neps was N. rafflesiana. It only produced about 5 lower pitchers in my care then went right to vining and producing uppers I LOVE this plant!! So here are (possibly too many ) pictures. Click the URL for higher res photos.. (especially the 3rd!)

    Couldn't tell ya. As I've said in a few Nep posts... I'm not the biggest nep guy around, I just happen to grow them decently I guess. I was actually unaware of anything other than uppers and lowers. I just know this looks different than what it was making

    I don't know how old the plant is.. I've had it 5 months but it was a good size before that...

    Here it is back in June on the far left



    And here it is as of today (sorry for the bright backlighting.. I shoulda used the flash.. ohwell, you get the idea! This pitcher by the way is resting on the rack.. the tendril is that long.

    I believe he was being slightly facetious in calling it an intermediate, hence the smiley face and the question mark. Anywho, concocted is spelled as such, not "concockted". BTW, maybe you could post about something else, other than flaming Glider14.

    Nice pics Andrew. I hope I can provide similar conditions for my Raff when it gets that big =).
