    My new Neps! (DUW)

    I got these a couple weeks ago, and let them settle in a bit before I got pictures. I wanted to make sure they were all doing well, since I don't grow under what I gather is typically considered highland conditions. Temps at night are in the very high 60's - low 70's, and daytime temps can reach around 76 or 77 on most days.

    N. rajah - this one had the two bottom leaves and all old pitchers die off within the first week, but has put out a new leaf, and is forming two new pitchers.





    N. talangensis - the largest pitcher died off, but it's also put out two new ones.





    N. lowii - lost the largest pitcher, and the growth paused until recently, but otherwise doesn't seem too unhappy



    N. ephippiata - this one never missed a beat...it's continued to grow the pitchers that were already there, and seems to really enjoy the conditions



    N. bellii - I know, this one probably shouldn't be in the same conditions as the others. It arrived with no pitchers, but is growing some new leaves, so I'm hoping for some new pitchers on those, as well.

    They look like they are adjusting nicely. The N. talangensis looks like a N. mirabilis
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Hmm. Well, I got it at a good price, so I suppose it doesn't matter too much. If anything, I'll grow it up a bit, and trade it off

    dial-up warning, since the pictures are on the large side, and there are several of them...if someone were to have a dial up connection, it may take some time to load.

    its possible that its a talangensis, remember that the place you got them from isnt very good at keeping their plants that they are selling. its young and looks a bit etoliated
