    Talking A few species from my humble abode

    Hey guys,

    Here are some updated pics of my plants.

    N.bicalcarata: the pitcher on the left in the background is a little over an year old. The one in focus is the latest one. This newest one is around the size of a coffee cup...if I may say so. The plant has a diameter of a little over a foot now.



    N.hamata (wistuba clone 2): A plant from a good friend of mine. No pitchers for the first 3 leaves. Finally it struck and it was worth the wait.



    N.talangensis: First proper pitcher. Suffured due to multiple repottings, lack of light for AN YEAR. I got it in october last year. Had a pitcher just as I repotted and this is the first true good, well formed, well colored pitcher. Its a beautiful species.



    N.campanulata: Another plant from my good friend. It started making pitchers from leaf number 2 in my care. This is the pitcher on leaf 3.



    N.glabrata: The fourth and the most mature looking lower pitcher on my N.glabrata. very creamy looking pitchers on this plant. Almost reminds me of white chocolate.



    Hope you guys like it.

    cheers,

    Varun

    I don't even want to breathe near talangensis. lol! it took an yr for me to make this nice pitcher. No wonder its soo used in hybrid creation....its a magnificent species. mine loves the highest light levels it can get.

    Here is a new pitcher on my hamata opened yest. The color change is soo dramatic.

    Great plants Varun! Wow! I can't even pick a favorite.

    Do you let your bical sit in water? Mine only wants to keep 2-3 leaves at a time before they yellow and then completely blacken. It's pitchering, but they only last a few weeks.

    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?

    thanks guys!

    @ crystal: Thanks! The bical grows in 100% LFS. The pot is an 8 inch round pot and for the most part the surface live sphagnum is dry.....I do water regularly (once or twice a week) and make sure that a few drops of water drip from the drain holes. Give me a breakdown of your conditions, your lighting, your watering, your media etc.
