    February pics

    I thought I would post a few pics. The N. ventricosa pic shows the effect of using coffee. There was a big increase in pitcher size after a couple of applications a few weeks apart, which is obvious in the photo. I'm a believer now.


    N. truncata x veitchii


    N. x mixta


    N. x hookeriana


    N. veitchii LL


    N. ventricosa "red"

    the way how your veitchii arranges itself and it's pitchers looks almost unreal. your plants overall look fantastic!

    Thanks. Yeah, the N. t x v is growing out in the open in a south window in my kitchen. It seems to like it there. There's a N. clipeata x (clipeata x eyemae) and a N. pilosa x vietchii growing there, too. Humidity doesn't seem to be an issue, but the air in my house isn't as dry as in some.

    Actually, I did some arranging. I had to turn the plant to get the new developing pitchers out of harm's way. My wife inadvertently lopped one off a leaf that was sticking out too far into the room just putting her coat on, and I realized I had to do something.

    Thanks for the compliment.

    how often did you water the ventricosa with coffee. and did you let it sit in for a little or just run through the pot ?and does caffinated or decaf matter?

    That Hookeriana is fabulous! The striping on the peristome and the brownish-looking flecks are really nice.
