    Various photos and 'to feed or not to feed'

    Taking it easy today so snapped a few photos as the sun was darting in and out of rain clouds.

    Something new..
    N. ampullaria red x sibuyanensis Looking good. I think these will be even nicer than the new N. amp red x ventricosa recently released. (close up of a seedling)


    N. veitchii x platychila recently opened. This is the Malesiana plant. The peristome gets darker purple as it ages.


    Now THIS is more like it!
    N. veitchii bareo - Malesiana clone again. The plants have not grown too much larger yet since they arrived but the pitchers have gained alot of size and color. I think this is due in part to lower light levels and alot of nitrogen fertilizer where they were. The plants were VERY dark green and pitchers were just a couple inches tall on leaves 4 times that size.
    Recently opened pitcher. The peristome gets very dark purple as it ages and the pink pitchers gets a little more green. You can see the much improved pitcher/leaf ratio too.


    One forum member might recognize this N. macrophylla. I put this in to show how important to feed your plants. Normally I don't hand feed them. You see alot of posts about the latest and greatest method to feed your plants. It really isn't necessary though to chase some new and fancy feeding method. This plant has received nothing but freeze dried bloodworms. It has made a few leaves for me since I received it but you can see now after a few months how the feeding has kicked in. I feed the plant about once a week with a few bloodworms into each open pitcher.


    And finally one to drool over..
    (yes I am aware it is a lowland plant)

    and yes the color is accurate.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    The N. viking is just.... wow!

    It looks as though it should be beating with life
    "Villains!" I shrieked, "dissemble no more! I admit the deed! tear up the planks! Here, here! It is the beating of his hideous heart!"
