    Some Happy Plants and a Couple Back from the Brink . . .

    Here are a few shots from this morning of some of my outdoor highland Nepenthes (with an odd Australian neighbor tagging along for the ride) -- two of which looked like they were on their last legs as recently as 15 June. Some odd ailment struck both my Nepenthes jamban (picked up in the Spring in a TF trade) as well as N. aristolochioides. I couldn't find any particular pest and all the neighboring plants seemed happy as clams. The affected plants' leaves mysteriously blackened from the tips inward (any ideas out there?) and I honestly thought that I had lost them both; thankfully though, I have now reason to change that opinion . . .

    Here is one of my Nepenthes hamata that had begun its vining process and was trimmed back to its four to six basals some time back; it is just now coming back in force . . .

    Spectacular, I want a jamban more and more very time. Could the ailment be Black death? its consists of blackeneing of the growth point for no reason.

    Thanks . . .

    I have the luxury of growing them outdoors in Northern California and there is really no substitute for sunlight, though I do have younger plants under lights . . .

    I really don't know but other plants growing right along side remained totally unaffected. Both plants had been reduced to blackened sticks by June . . .

    Glad to see that they have come back. The growth spurts in your aristo reminds me of Av8tor's aristo...sheesh...that thing is a beast.

    Yeah, "Loligo1964" managed to post. For some reason or another, I couldn't use "BigBella" on the UK site when I originally joined -- although Bella the dog always makes her appearance. Go figure . . .
