    I'm loving your N. tentaculata. In my opinion, it's more elegant than its more popular sibling, N. hamata. I love the pitcher mouth for some reason. Really cool shape.

    yeah, Tentaculata is deffinitly one of my favorite neps, like you said, more so than hamata. looking very nice glider, im jealous :3
    i cant wait for my lowii to start taking off. though mine has larger leaves....just smaller pitchers lol.
    lets just see how it does....
    its like a race now between you and i....
    whose great-grandchildren will see the uppers off our lowiis first....

    Dear Alex,

    Great looking plants. I look forward to seeing some more mature N. lowii lowers as they get some more girth. Where's your friend these days to tell you how you can't grow plants? lol.

    Not to rain on this parade, but I had a N. aristolochiodes that was smaller than yours, and the tiny growth tip started to turn black and look like yours. Needless to say, it didn't make it, but my conditions were severely less than ideal for an N. aristolochiodes. Hopefully it's not the same thing. I wish I had a picture to compare.

    nice fusca Alex. I got one recently...I can't take any credit for its current pitchers as it was grown outdoors by a master of neps. It seems like a real slow plant...is this right??

    thanks for the comments everyone!
