    Cleaning the greenhouse and some greenhouse visits. Lotsa pics! D.U.W.

    I recently took some time off of work to relax and take care of some things that needed to get done in the greenhouse. With this time off, I also had the fortune of visiting Steve Duggins' greenhouses. While there, we met up with Ed Read, greenhouse manager at CSUF (Cal State University Fullerton). He was very generous and gave us a private tour of the CSUF greenhouses. The place was amazing, and filled with many carnivorous plants as well as various other interesting plants.

    CSUF:

    Mixta 'Sanguinea': A very nice plant with large pitchers:


    Rafflesiana:


    Bicalcarata:


    Rafflesiana x Maxima (or the reverse, can't recall)


    Maxima x Veitchii (I think...):



    Steve Duggins' plants:

    His great looking Thorelii x TM:


    Chaniana x Veitchii (someone was asking for extra pics of this cross in the chat box, and mine doesn't look that great right now:


    A light clone of Sib x TM:


    Steve has way too many plants to post all the pics I have here. And I really liked how clean and organized his greenhouses are:


    My Plants:

    A Muluensis x Lowii that's looking pretty good. It has some really nice yellow stripes on a dark maroon peristome:




    Maxima x Thorelii




    Truncata x TM. This plant is from Mike Ludwig. Unfortunately the plants I have from EP's most recent release of this cross don't seem to have any peristome striping, but i'm hoping they will when they mature some. Has anyone had any with striping at a small size?


    A really cool unknown hybrid I received from Mike. Unfortunately this plant has some sort of disease but I think it's making a comeback. This pitcher is a little asymmetrical in the peristome, but once the disease is gone it makes some awesome pitchers with even wider peristomes:


    It has a nice dark color under the lid:




    My Ventricosa x TM. I think it's getting ready to flower. My largest Izumeae x Truncata is also flowering. These are a couple parents I would be interested in trying my hand at hybridizing at. I have a few other plants already in flower, or beginning to flower, so hopefully I can give it a shot. I'll have to come back here for some advice .

    This is just AWESOME!

    I've never seen so many striped peristomes in one thread!

    Looks like your Muluensis x Lowii experiences a lot of high light levels. Mine isn't doing so well right now. Any general tips?


    Great looking pics by the way!
