    Can i make a picture thread? Find out!

    Well, here are some of my neps. This is a chunk of my personal collection, in my mini-greenhouse in my back yard. Hopefully it worked, i gotta compete with some of the other pic threads!

    Ok, heres my big breeding stock N. truncata. Truncs are my favorite nepenthes...













    16" ruler vs. the smaller pitcher



    a lil' SG truncata:



    A capslock creation:



    This is my ventrata experiment. The soil is 1/2 osmocote, 1/2 coffee. The result is a ventrata the grows rampantly-er, has made 6 ft. of vine in 4 months, huge green leaves, offshoots out the "stoma", and absolutely NO pitchers.





    what it leaves behind when watered



    Here's a bench (this is the cleanest of 5 lol)...



    A nice ceph...

    Now


    artsy talangensis


    poorly colored iz x tm



    thorelli x truncata A EP female



    Pop art S. jonesii



    Ugly (at the moment!) N. Kona



    "F" Alata from EP





    Sorry this was so long, i was just excited to actually post pics haha. Once the sun comes up for spring my plants should color up nicely...they better! Hope you like 'em anyways!

    Awesome pics! That N. ventrata experiment is something cool...I bet if you grew it in pure coffee, then it'd make pitchers!

    Jealous of your N. truncata and N. izumea x TM.

    When you say coffee do you mean coffee grinds?

    thank Jimmy! i think your right, im gonna try pure coffee and coral/coffee next i think.

    Yeah, the left over stuff. It has yeilded amazing results for me when applied at 1-3 tbsp. (depending on the size/health of the plant) every 3-4 months on neps, sarras, cephs and drosera.

    Interesting that the Ventrata lived with that much fertilizer.
    makes you wonder what would happen if you planted in regular soil and treated it like a houseplant.
    nice truncata
