    Success! Nepenthes Plus a Few Extras...

    Lately most of my plants have been sprouting pitchers and growing like crazy! My Nepenthes (and a few others) are on the windowsill in my room under a few fluorescent lights, and they have finally adapted to their new home!

    N. spectabilis x aristolochioides
    This is it's first pitcher since I've had it:


    N. ephippiata
    I LOVE this plant.

    It is a tiny pitcher making machine : )


    N. smilesii
    I thought this one was going to die for months, but then I decided to try to re-adapt it (again with the plastic bag method) and since then it has exploded with new growth. It's one of my fastest growing plants and it has two developing pitchers along with this one.


    N. glabrata
    This is its first pitcher. It's a little deformed and suffering slightly from little-lid syndrome, but it's not bad for a start.


    N. clipeata x (clipeata x eymae)
    It wasn't doing very well when I got it, and I had to adapt it to lower humidity via the plastic bag method, but now it is one of my favorites. The pitcher it had when I bought it was about an inch high. This one is its first since then and it is more than double that pitcher's size.


    N. copelandii
    Just opened...

    And another one on the way:


    N. ventricosa x mira
    This is the most vigorous plant I have, and it has tons of little pitchers.
    The oldest with little lid syndrome:

    And the newest:


    N. tenteculata
    It has never produced any pitchers before, but now there are several inflating at once. I can't wait to see what they'll look like fully developed.



    N. maxima
    No pitchers in a long while, but geeze is it getting big!


    Baby D. capensis alba from seed (thanks SDCPs!)


    The whole Indoor setup:


    And now for some outdoor plants...

    My big D. capensis typical plants are flowering outdoors.




    S. purpurea. I saved it from a Lowes death cube last winter, and it has finally begun to put out pitchers.


    Dionaea muscipula


    And last but not least...
    My Leopard gecko, Neptune (because he is so cute!)

    Thanks for all the complements! I always see such beautiful pictures of other peoples' plants on here. It's good to finally have some of my own to share and be proud of.

    Clue--Thank you! It's absolutely my favorite plant!

    jimscott--That's what I thought. In truth he's probably thinking something along the lines of, "Oh God, there's that monster again!" With the camera I probably do look like something of a giant cyclops compared to him
