    Neps of the Summer of '09

    Hi all, some recent pics of some of my Neps:

    Predator, Basil finally getting somewhere... the vine itself has been getting ridiculous. almost 4 feet of green vine with almost 3 ana half of stick.
    Since taking these pics, the pitcher has coloured nicely with a close-to black peristome with close-to purple splotching of the tube.
    These pics are from when this pitcher first opened.





    The next pitcher has much promise as the tendril is much thicker.


    Couple of pics of a Veitchi xx Tiveyii pitcher in the chamber for fun






    Dyeriana One
    (with the obligatory beer scale)



    Dyeriana Two





    Lowii x Ventricosa Red Basal puttin out much larger pitchers than the vine (but not as nice)

    Now for some pics I had fun with... all pics are all taken with an Powershot SD750. & I lower the resolution (sorry big screeners)

    The studio-style pics are taken with clamp lights and the basic manual controls you get with such a camera...

    Hamata







    Now Lowii...











    A healthy "knot" is a healthy plant



    Now the whole plant:



    & a weird-ed out pitcher??
