    Big batch of spring pics

    Spring has sprung around here, and it's time to take some pics!

    First, the outdoor dwellers. The Darlingtonia have arrived and I really should trim last year's pitchers:


    N. ventricosa x aristolochioides proves again to be impervious to cold by spending a third straight year outdoors on my deck, never coming inside even for the coldest winter days. In fact, it threw up three flower spikes!


    The yard bog has sprung too:


    Drosophylum Lusitanicum, flowering a second year in a row. This also lives on the deck all year round:


    Back to the grow room! Here's a shelf full of happy neps:


    A hybrid I made: N. (thorellii x aristo) x truncata:


    N. Sp 1 with a newly opened pitcher:


    N. ampularia 'Giant Red' with a dusky colored albomarginata living on top:

    One of my N. boschiana x ?? plants has become a monster. This plant is less than two years from sowing the seed:



    Here's a more typically sized version of that cross:


    N. campanulata x (spectabilis x talangensis):


    N. lingulata:


    N. lowii - when I got this plant from Peter D'Amato, it could fit under a nickel:


    Longor sent out a bunch of N. ovata seed a while back - here's the one I kept:


    Another cool little seedling. This is N. sanguinea, a speckled form. I love growing from seed and not knowing what it will turn out like!:


    Upper pitcher of N. Sp. Langkawi:

    N. thorellii x aristolochioides, male clone:


    N. truncata x (vent x aristo):


    I haven't posted Predator pics in forever since it was just vining away for a while, but now the basals have grown up a bit:



    Thanks for looking!

    Great plants as usually, Capslock. The N. boschiana x ? is ridiculous.

    I especially like your own hybrid thorellii x aristo x truncata, the campanulata x (spectabilis x talangensis), and the sanguinea seedling!

    I've got a bunch of sang seedlings myself, but they're not very big yet.

    You're making us all look like slack-jawed punks.

    I salute you . . .
