    some more highland nep pics

    I posted a few shots of these plants a few months back so here is just a little progress report.




    N diatas pitcher




    the whole N diatas vine. Ugly now, but just you wait!






    N spectablilis pitchering like crazy




    baby spectabilis





    N spectabilis x ventricosa



    not a very exciting N truncata for most, but this is the first significantly larger, more colorful pitcher. That is always an exciting one for the owner.

    Looking good basso! I remember you having some issues with getting the N. diatas to pitcher. It looks like it's happy now .

    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?

    Nice pics - I rather like the N. diatas, myself. Trim the dead stuff off and I think it would be quite charming. I'm a fan of the scrambling vine look, especially when basals start springing up too.
    Just wait a little longer with your truncata - I think once they start to show that upside-down heart shape in the peristome, that's when they're about hit the first big growth spurt. Both of my truncata have about doubled or tripled in size within two or three leaves after reaching that point. (They're getting to the size where I'm going to have to find a new shelf for them, before they squish their neighbors.)
