both of my jambans currently have pitcher upcoming, so i will post those here as well once they open
the pitcher on the red clone is a very odd shape, more jamban-like than my lighter clone so far.

awsome plants, I would also love to get one but I'd probly kill it.
Here is a quick shot of Nepenthes jamban from this morning. I have noticed that, among my other Nepenthes, this plant lures and collects the lion's share of insects; and, in terms if its pitcher fluid, it strikes me as more a thick syrup than anything else . . .
Have other growers noticed or experienced this?

Mine seems to be quite picky about conditions. A spike in heat or a large drop in humidity and it will abort pitchers not yet inflated. But it is inflating one now, my fingers are crossed. I too noticed the pitcher fluid to be quite viscous. Great pic Bella.
Oddly in a turn of events with lighting, my darker clone is currently lighter than my lighter clone, but has a larger pitcher...
So here are some photos
So first off, the first jamban i got, (my lighter clone)
Now my darker clone, which i remind you is currently lighter than my other clone (this clone turns very deep red, almost purple in the right conditions, cant wait to get back into the GH!!!)
and a basal as well ;p
Very nice growing SK. Glad you could salvage some of those plants. If you like the jamban, just wait til you see the jacquelineae if it survived. Its pitchers are supper dark. Michael at CPJ always sends me supper dark clones. Anyway those are your plants for good now. I will be concentrating on Intermediates/lowlanders which are much easier where I live due to climate. I finally got my intermediate/lowlander greenhouse built and running. I love highlanders but cannot find anyone reliable to take care of them when I have to travel for work/extended periods.
I hope some of the hamatas also made it; especially the basal from capslock. It was really nice before the neglect of my caretaker.
macamus, sadly 2 plants did die, the xTrusmadiensis and the smaller hamata clone from max, though i think the hamata has potential to come back from basals still, root system still looks alive/healthy even with a dead plant...i wont give up hope, ive had miracles. lol
the ramispina is in flower right now, and the jacq is coming around. most of the plants are doing really well, a couple died back but have come back from either basals or nodes....
3 of the hamata came in with broken growth tips, im surprised i saved em all but the 1, but we will see how they all do come time for my greenhouse, thanks again macamus, i cant wait to see the jacq pitchers....
Gosh! Now I really want to kill the bank, but they aren't even available!
Good growing, guys.
I AM getting a hamata in a couple months.
If you shake a rain stick, you get rain. I need a hamata stick.
