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:
And finally, guess who I am?
