nice pics how s the macro doin
Macro is looking good. What is the source? BE? I have a wistuba macro and it just isn't growing. I've been babying it for two years and it is barely alive and hasn't put on any size at all. I'm wondering if I just got a really weak tc plant. It is my most troublesome plant. I'm jealous of yours!
Bummer to hear that - I've had a few plants like that too unfortunately (not macro, but still expensive).

Here's some more pics--

...and d.scorpioides as an extra pic
Thez, great plants! Do you grow all your plants on the balcony?
Once we get the Santa Ana winds in Aug/Sept where it's 90deg all day and night long, I'm going to have to trade out the lowlander neps, hot utrics, and petiolaris sundews with the UH/L's - I was just thinking about it this morning (because I'm going to turn the A/C on inside so I don't melt too ). I'll have to pull in the dubia, aristolochioides, densiflora, Helis, argentii, villosa, & Darlingtonia in. And anything else that starts looking angry...which likely contains the glabrata, gynamphora, macrophylla and one of the triumvirate mikei/izumiae/ramispina because they all look alike and angry in that heat for me.
The N. macrophylla looks a bit dry. The moss on top of my mix never gets crispy. Light looks on the high side too. Maybe put up a little window screen to give them a bit of shade? Might help some too on keeping the mix a little moister for longer periods.
Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
Here's more pics from today, whee!
N.thorelliiXcampanulata - the same pitcher from a month or so ago, but darkened up a bit:
...and its lid exudate (nasty sticky gooey stuff)
N.exotic lady (just opened today, will probably darken a little):
And a new Haeckel Print nepenthes tray that I just bought (decoupaged):
