    Nepenthes in March

    N. hirsuta - never a popular species in collections


    N.rafflesiana, N. ampullaria, N. kuchingensis, N. khasiana x viking, N. mirabilis var echinostoma


    New additions - N. lowii x campanulata, N. treubiana


    Youngsters - N. bentonei, N. adnata, N. longifolia


    N. rowanae (assorted forms)


    N. gracilis 'spotted squat', N. gracilis 'black'


    N. sp Viking - love the globous pitchers


    N. albomarginata 'purple-black' (EP), N. albomarginata 'black' (MT) - just to share the distinct differences in the upper pitchers

    Quite an impressive array of lowlanders Cindy. Nice pics too.

    Well done!

    Nice, thanks for sharing! Particularly love that albo on the left - the dark brings out the white stripe so nicely.

    Wow!


    Your hirsuta looks to be a hispida to me. My hirsuta clone from BE happened to be a hispida as well. The species are very similar. >.<

    Oh, and Viking is now mirabilis var. globosa... personally, I think that Viking is still different enough from mirabilis to be different species.

    Hi Clue,

    I have my doubts too...I'll ask the Nepenthes gurus for a possible ID. Thanks!

    Very nice N. hirsuta/hispada. Have never grown it, but I think the pitchers are great on this species. May have to pick this plant up and start growing. Can see why it got its name as it is very hairy/more hairy than my veitchii. I have also heard it is a very easy lowlander? Singapore has the perfect lowland conditions. I do here where I live about 9 months out of the year. The other 3 months of winter my lowlanders struggle even with a heater in the greenhouse. This winter has been particularly cold even in the southern US this year. Anyhow, very good growing.
