    Few pics

    Nothing spectacular, but I know we all love pics.

    truncata x ephippiata, newly opened pitcher. This pitcher is 6". Lots of stripes in the peristome, and it darkens rapidly after opening, I was surprised at the amount of red overall. The second pic shows an older pitcher with some exudate on the lid. Kinda hard to see in the lighting but it's there!



    muluensis x lowii. This one pouted for almost a year after getting it, but once it woke up it's been growing a pitchering nicely. There's two more pitcher buried in the moss, and two more older pitchers on the other side of the plant. Right now, my second most prolific pitcherer after Lady Pauline.


    Small hamata, standard BE clone. Great plant, hasn't missed a beat, each pitcher looks better and better. This pitcher's been open about a week, it's darkening slowly.



    singalana. She's a beauty! Darn slow growing for me lately, plant stays quite small so far. Should look great in a couple years time.


    veitchii H/L x eymae seedling. So far nothing much to look at. Grows at a moderate rate. The peristome has some faint striping so I have high hopes:


    thorelii x (spectabilis x northiana). Pitcher about 7". This plant loves to blush; so much red in the pitchers and leaves:


    spectabilis x mira, pitcher several months old. This plant is frustrating me. The plant arrived in bad shape, and still over a year and a half later it struggles. What happens is the growth tip 'disappears' randomly. Several leaves unfurl normally, then one will unfurl and there will be a little microscopic nub for a growth tip. It will sit there for a long time, months, then make a couple deformed leaves and start the process over. It's has been painfully slow growing also. It did put out a basal a while back, which is growing fantastically though, so I may just chop the main vine and let the basal take over.


    Good ol' Lady Pauline. This plant rocketed in the past several months. Went from about a foot high to now 4'. Plus it has a basal that is really showing some vigor. No uppers yet, but hopefully soon:

    Of course we all love pics.

    I especially appreciate your hamata. Perhaps a greener variant, or just slow
    to colour up only time will tell.
    Also that is one gorgeous looking Lady Pauline.

    Great photos and well grown plants!

    The coloration in your muluensis x lowii is very unique. Nice job.
