Its been probably about 4-5 years since Ive posted any plant pics. (yea im a slacker) ;^)
About a month ago i finally was able to expand my growing room to the point of being able to get a camera in there and take some decent pictures! (its still crowded) but at least now i can move around without fear of being stangled by a stray nep vine
Anyway, here's a bunch my plant pics,..
Im going to start out with one of my favorites..
EP's lowii x ventricosa red
heres a cluster of pitchers on the same plant, there's also a vent x TM pitcher wedged in the middle of them.
heres another favorite and a similar but slightly more colorful plant, 'Peter D’Amato' [ventricosa x lowii]
My Peter D' is still a small plant but it seems to grow for me about the same as Ep's lowii x vent
Now for something completely different,.. the odd looking spathulata x ampullaria-Straits (b)
ampullaria doesn't do well for me over the cold winters (and i really like amps) so Ive made due with amp like hybrids like the above and the next plant, N. 'Ron Determan which is ampullaria x alata
If you like tubby and green this is the one for you, lol
After repotting last year my Dyneriana is finally putting out nice big pitchers
My copper colored eymae x veitchii
The easy growing sibuyanensis x maxima(l) (i really love this plant)
one of the most colorful "weeds" ever created :-), tobaica-purple x thorelii-squat
the always vivid spectabilis x veitchii
I got this Mixta back in 1998, I was told that its actually a cutting of the Mixta pictured in the savage garden.
Another wonderful (big) weed, truncata x ventricosa
My Bical, (when i got this plant, the leafspan was about 2 inches across)
The strange, easy to grow, and nearly fangless bicalcarata x maxima
My very first nepenthes, wrigleyana, I got this one back in 1996 along with a ventrata. At the time i was growing them both in a warm windowsill above a radiator in the apartment i lived in,..within a month the ventratas pitchers all shriveled up and it never did a thing for me aside from grow nice healthy pitcherless leaves, the wrigleyana however put out a nice colorful pitcher on every leaf and continued to grow happily for me (i was hooked on neps after that) so for a beginners plant id recommend wrigleyanna over ventrata!,..haha
I have two different seed grown plants of Rokko Exotica and they look completely different, this is my fave, its has very dark purple spotted aristo like pitchers and its also a female and currently in flower,... (if anyone has any males in flower please let me know, ill gladly split the seeds 50/50, this plant always puts out a large flower spike).... besides, shes a pretty girl and not picky, lol
and lastly my lowland Truncata is finally starting to get some size to it. It was about a foot across back in 04 when It barely survived a greenhouse freeze, I'm sure if it hadn't been set back it would probably be much larger by now.
