    N. Miranda outdoors and Sarrs!

    So lately I've been on TF chat talking about this big Miranda I had that I just needed to get rid of. I threw it outside just to get rid of it and I didn't really have any concern if it'd live or not. It's been there for a week, I went on a trip to LA for the weekend and left it out there with no water either...

    It's pretty much in full sun for most of the day...



    So I check on it today, it managed to sprout a basal in the time it's been out there:


    And not only has the sun been fueling it's new growth, but it went from catching no insects to having this black pool of liquid in it's pitchers!


    I may just convert to full-outdoor growing with these results...

    Anyways here are some pictures of the Sarrs...




    S. Rubra is very sensitive to hard water. Do not mess around with it at all with these guys, my other plants are doing fine sadly...


    Super awesome S. Minor


    S. Leuco x Oreo


    S. Flava 'Cuprea'


    S. x Cobra Nest


    S. x Moorei


    S. Flava


    This will make you laugh.

    This was my entire CP collection as of a year ago, no Neps



    Anyone in my area who would like to stop by and say hi and have a look at the plants is more than welcome to PM me! They're sitting outside in my alley along with my veggie garden!

    I'll take your miranda if you really want to get rid of it.

    Nice plants too.

    I need to put my Nepenthes 'Gentle' out there too, it became rootbound in the 3" square pot literally months after I got it. These darn Maxima hybrids do not quit.

    Dude the 40+ minute drive is not worth seeing a bunch of mediocre looking plants in my driveway plus the like 15 neps I have in my care. Half of them aren't even done making the first pitchers of the season due to the growth explosion from the tempurature rise lately.
