Just figured I would share a couple pics of the greenhouse neps now that they've had some time to settle in. Unfortunately the daylight hours have been less than ideal, but some stuff is still looking pretty good.
A couple Spectabilis xx Lowii x Ventricosa pitchers.
Another seed grown of the same cross:
2 Eymae uppers from Andreas Wistuba: The vine on this thing is out of control.
Same plant, Lowers:
Maxima x Trusmadiensis with it's big mouth swallowing up other pitchers. This clone makes some huge pitchers and is growing like a weed. I just took 2 or 3 cuttings of this plant that I plan on establishing nicely before trading if anyone is interested in cloning one of their plants.
Another, after removing the pitcher from the pitcher...
An upper and a Lower of Maxima x Thorelii (I also took cutings of this plant):
The upper by itself:
Talangensis x Veitchii (H/L): This plant took a beating but is coming back strong with 2 growth points that have sprung back surprisingly quickly.
Truncata xx Ventricosa x Aristolochiodes: Looks like something was munching on this before everything got Ortho-bombed.
I can never remember the species used in this hybrid, but i really like the pink pastel coloration, although my camera fails to capture it.
Thorelii x TM 'Steve Duggins' if you will: I really love this clone. This cross is extremely dynamic, even within the same clone, however all the uppers of this particular clone have a crazy mouth shape.
Thorelii x Tiveyii:
Sibuyanensis x Trusmadiensis: This is one of my favorites (although they all are really). This appears to be an almost-upper but i'm not really sure. It seems like the other pitcher i've seen on it before have had even more prominent 'teeth'. I have a basal cutting rooting up if anyone is interested in the future.
Spathulata x Thorelii: (cuttings of this as well)
Ventricosa x Aristo: This is actually an established cutting with a decent sized pitcher. The actual plant slowed down a lot due to a ridiculous amount of basals and sideshoots. I hacked this plant up some, but the rest should fill out nicely
Spectabilis x Veitchii H/L
Eymae xx Stenophylla x Lowii: The coloration in the pitchers make it seem as if they're filled with blood. This pic sucks because my camera has no focus.
I'm not really sure on the parentage of this hybrid. It appears to be Veitchii x Truncata but Ludwig (whom donated the plant to me) said he didn't have that cross anymore. The plant was definitely in decline so it's possible he didn't realize he had the clone and it was hiding behind some other plants. This has already happened to me too =). I've been spraying with Orthonex to kill off some mites, but I'm not sure what's wrong with this one. I repotted it and removed the old clogging media so hopefully these measures will solve the problem, but any advice would be greatly appreciated. I want this plant to recover, because it looks promising:
