    Can't let my LLs be under-represented...

    Nothing too special/rare, but oh well. Most of my stuff is lollygagging around and generally being slow.



    N. unknown. More than likely has some maxima I think.



    Alata var. boschiana mimic



    Just testing out my macro capabilities. Guess I have spiders lol. This is [Splendiana x [(stenophylla x lowii) x (Rokko x veitchii)]]. Seeds from JK. I have about 30 of these. The biggest one is only about a little over 1"...I forget how old they are.



    Seed grown tobaica. Good grower in LL conditions, as you can see.



    This is either thorelii (d) x truncata or thorelii x truncata (c). I can never remember and I've long since lost the tag. Pitcher from a basal.



    Newest 'black dragon' pitcher. This plant has greatly speeded up after I removed the basal it had when it was only about 3" across (I think Andy has the basal now). These pitchers keep getting bigger and better.



    Campanulata. Have to be careful acclimating this one, I think.



    Veitchii seedling from EP I got by way of Sunbelle. I have admittedly been growing it in way too low light (just fixed that though!). The pitchers are getting squatter with a thicker peristome. Though you can't really see it, there is a little faint pink peristome striping, and pink spots in the throat. When grown in high light, this plant has nice pink wings.


    Last but not least:

    This is my miracle story of the year. I got this merrilliana with 6 leaves, and it looked like it wasn't in such good condition. The leaves were mostly yellow, and the newest was much smaller than the rest. The plant started to sag and curl, which made me think the roots were dead and it wasn't getting any water. I took an emergency cutting, which quickly rotted on me lol, and I thought with only 3 half leaves, the plant would surely die. Instead, it surprised me with 3 new growth points, and is obviously coming back with a vengeance.


    Might add a couple more later.

    How are you growing your Nepenthes in a peat/perlite mix?

    Nice lowlanders Phission. I'm especially enjoying your 'Black Dragon', although I was under the impression that it's an intermediate Nepenthes. Seems like it's doing well in your higher temperatures.

    My basic mix is 5:2:2 peat/perlite/vermiculite.

    The alata is in basic + a couple of pieces of lava rock.
    Seedlings are in basic + some bark.
    Tobaica, veitchii, and Black Dragon are in aged fir bark, charcoal, and perlite.
    Thorelii hybrid and campanulata are in nothing but the basic mix, though the campanulata has some horticultural lime added in (and it looks like a few pieces of bark snuck in there somehow).
    Now, the merrilliana....its in the basic mix, fir bark, charcoal, hydroton, I think a couple of pieces of sphag, and some styrofoam packing peanuts. I was running out of everything and just threw a random mix together. It's really perfect for the species in my opinion (merrilliana likes it a bit drier than most LLs), but it's too complicated for me to use often.

    Most of my neps though are grown just in the basic mix.
