    A couple highlanders

    So even though it's summer, some of my true highland plants are pretty happy.

    Here's N. lowii (ep clone c)


    My big N. macrophylla fell on hard times last year, and struggled with pests, repotting, and moving around too much. However, it's come back pretty well. Not only is the main stem again producing good leaves (and soon pitchers), but it's thrown a big basal that has two pitchers (the other is around back).


    Here's a closeup of the pitcher:


    And finally, here's the N. sibuyanensis x hamata that was available last year. It's got nice striking color, but disappointing teeth:

    I tell you, it's a hard knocks life with basals like that! What is the pitcher resting in your N. macrophylla pot? Thanks for sharing.

    Wow! Your basal is about as large as my one and only Macrophylla!

    Did that clone come from Wistuba?
