    Greenhouse Pics

    Hi all,
    Here are some pics of some of my neps. These are in intermediate conditions in winter and on the cooler side of lowland in the summer. The rest of my neps are outside. My mom has been taking care of my plants while I'm at school, and she sent me these pics today. It's nice to be able to see the progress they have made, especially after the coffee treatment I gave them a month and a half ago. Sorry for the blurriness in some of the pics. My mom's camera isn't very good.


    Left to right: N. veitchii pink, N. maxima x [(stenophylla x lowii) x (Rokko x veitchii-Highland)] (whew, that's a long name!), N rafflesiana BE 88 or 99, and N. spectabilis giant in the back


    This was taken 2 months ago. N truncata pasian highland and N. ventricosa very squat x red leather


    The same plants today


    Look at the size increase


    Truncata showing promise. I hope this clone produces redder pitchers as it gets bigger


    This was sold as a seed grown N. burkei, which it obviously is not...but it doesn't seem to be a ventricosa either...


    Malesiana's veitchii pink with dyeriana working on a pitcher behind it


    N. Miranda starting to vine


    Baby N. maxima giant wavy leaved form
    Now for some non-neps

    Utricularia reniformis


    U. longifolia


    Laeliocattleya Gold Digger 'Orglade's Mandarin'


    Rhyncostylis gigantea


    Phaius Dan Rosenburg

    Terrific greenhouse man. ALMOST makes me wish my family had stayed in southern California! Nice variety of beautiful plants for sure.

    Looks great - that truncata is awesome. Always good to hear a positive report of family/friends caring for plants. You should do something nice for your mom.

    Thanks for the comments.
    As for pics of the outside, I currently don't have any, but the walls are like the ones you see for those stores with glass fronts (horrible description, I know). The roof is polycarbonate.

    I'm coming up with something for my mom for Mother's Day, but I think she actually likes taking care of the plants especially because she's less busy now that my brother and I are in college.
