    June/July pics

    Hey all!

    I shot some photos yesterday, and have a few to show. First, the most cold-tolerant nepenthes I've ever seen, N. ventricosa x aristolochioides. This has lived on my deck for over two years now, all year long. It's been through light freezes, and two winters where the average high temps are in the low 50s. Through it all it pitchers and grows. In summer, however, it does kick up a bit, and right now it's trying to make tons of new pitchers. And it's flowering.



    And it's sort of a strange flower - I'm assuming it's female:


    Here's a new pitcher:


    And here's a closeup of the stem, which shows how it makes lots of side shoots:


    Here's a seed grown N. ventriocsa I have that makes nice whiteish pitchers. This is grown under very bright T5 fluorescents which usually bring out reds:


    Some new pitchers of N. sib x TM:



    N. clipeata:


    And finally, guess who I am?

    Lol, I confused your name with mine and I thought, "When did I make this thread?" Anyways, great pics. That N. cliptea is an odd one, isn't it? And as for the last one, I think it's a young N. diatas?

    very nice. The last one can either be an edwardsiana/villosa/macrophylla. Now villosa pitchers are stubbier and not that long. Macro has a distinctive fatter shape than what is shown here. Considering that elongated shape with the toothy peristome.... I can only say an edwardsiana. Yet, I am not too comfortable with that guess as I have never seen a plant this small to be sure.

    Looks like it to me, but I have no clue what's what when they're this small.

    wow! thanks ilbasso! Yeah! that surely looks like it. I can swear that its not a villosa or a macrophylla.

    Looks like there are 2 forms of this: kinabalu & trusmadi. Any idea which this one might be Max?? What are the differences I wonder. Well...still congrats man! Wonderful plants.
