    More obscene Nepenthes . . .

    Hopefully, Photobucket will not censor them or remove them from my "album" as they did last year. "Unsuitable and a violation," so they had said.

    This further reminds me of my father and his often perverse sense of humor. My mother would frequently host her arch-religious friends over for tea, and she would actually have to spend a good amount of time making sure that my father had not arranged the various fruit baskets and luncheon items in an "unseemly" manner; and he always had . . .

    That was the previous pitcher with its more mature "feminine" appearance, seen in the second photo. Give Photobucket some time; it was really a riot last time . . .

    That N. truncata pitcher is currently 23 cm (9") tall and is not yet fully-formed or even opened. It is in a fairly standard Nepenthes compost of live sphagnum, perlite, pumice, some bark and sand -- just open and quick-draining. The humidity is reasonably high -- somewhere in the 65-70% range; but I am also near the coast and manage to mist things from time to time, since they are just above the kitchen sink.

    The Heliamphora heterodoxa x minor is a hybrid and is a bit more vigorous and tolerant of humidity and Tb changes than most of the species themselves; however, they do eventually adapt to local growing conditions, but a strong source of light is need to ensure that the leaves form correctly. It is in a compost of live sphagnum, pumice, and perlite . . .

    LOL! My aunt calls Neps "condom plants". She calls me up "we got in some more of those condom plants you like at the greenhouse" . One of the girls at work said "It looks like a guy thing"! When I cut off a pitcher and brought it in.

    Amorphophallus means "twisted or deformed penis" so that trivia tidbit should set the old mother in law right once and for all. And the bloom of A. paeoniifolius looks rather like a...

    I can't believe they actually pulled a plant photo for being "too suggestive"... Do you have any of their emails or anything you could post?

    Jeeze, photobucket pulled a pic of a pitcher as being a violation. Ridiculous. Didn't know a plant could violate anything. Ah well.

    Your plants look great. What direction is that window facing, and how much light would you say they get there?
