    Say cheeeze 'N mac

    Here are some pics of a couple of toothy smilin' N. macrophylla clones.

    This first one is of a clone I got from CZ Plants last year,


    This next pitcher is from a Wistuba clone that I also acquired last year.


    And this final pic is of the two N. macrophylla clones side by side, with the Wistuba clone on the left and the CZ Plants clone to the right. Both plants are growing in five inch diameter plastic pots.

    Hiya DVG-

    Two beautiful plants you got there. I kinda lilke the CZ clone better due to its darker coloration.

    Does CZ clone their own N. macs or do they get them from someplace else? If so, do you know where?

    Also, do you have a favorite between the two and why?

    Thanks for sharing your pics

    Have a Happy New Year

    I bought a cactus. A week later it died. And I got depressed, because I thought, Damn. I am less nurturing than a desert.

    Thanks guys,

    @ Devon, I grow all of my highlanders in the same conditions.

    And I don't find N. macs to be that difficult.

    They don't seem to need the extra cold that I try to give my N. villosa.


    @Ent, I'm not exactly positive on where CZ Plants get their plants from, but I think that they do get some of them from BE.

    You could always send Vasek Kubin, the owner of CZ, a quick email.

    He is a very honest and friendly man.

    Kinda difficult for me to pick a favorite.

    The Wistuba clone is much faster growing and is making much larger pitchers, but I also like the darker coloration of the CZ Plants clone.

    They are both different in their own way, with their own special qualities.

    My browser scrolled down way too fast and I thought the first one was a vft, lol.

    I wish I had a mac...

    In any case, great plants! They'll be spectacular when fully grown!
