    New nep's today!

    So just out of nowhere "been having a itching feeling to get some more nep's for a few days now" I decided to go to the Oregon orchid society spring show 2008 here in Portland. Low and behold there are some new ones I don't have yet there. So anyway I picked up a Mira, Tobaica, and Miranda. Here are some photo's.

    Hope you like them.

    very nice looking neps. good choice as well. They are tough and grow very fast in comparison to most species. My mira is smaller than yours but it still grows pretty fast in comparison to my talangensis & rajah obviously.

    ive had my mira for 10 months and it hasnt increased in diameter at all. pitchers are bigger but thats about all. iv giving less light now because it dosent seem to like a lot of light and made ugly red tints to the leaves. more of an orange that a red really. and its growing slow for me. but its a hardy grower pitchering in 20-40% humidity! haha!

    great looking plants!

    Strange! I had my mira only since october. its already like 1.5 times the size and its growing a bit more every leaf. It grows really fast as well. I guess this is one of those neps which needs higher humidity to do well...and yeah! my lighting is pretty bad.. I am getting a new light soon...but so far...no burning at all.

    I am convinced my Mira hates me... It is my worst looking Nep ever, and has hardly grown at all since I received it almost 7 months ago (it's literally like under 2" diameter - I hate TC sometimes).

    Nice new plants though Blazed =). They look very healthy. Looks like you scored . How much were they altogether? Thanks for sharing.

    I don't think its fair to blame TC. Especially this plant. My plant is a clone from BE as well. However, its from a local friend who grows it in real hardy conditions. SO it didn't skip a beat since I got it.

    So keep hanging at it....it depends on how the grower from whom u recieved it was growing it. Let it acclaimatise to your conditions.




    The plant dropped all its pitchers and leaves soon after it came. Well...leaves were dropped a lot slowly...i.e., just as a new leaf formed the old was gone. But its pretty steadily gaining size. I got it in october around 1.5 inches I guess....now its a little over 3.


    cheers,
