    Night photos

    N. hamata 'hairy red"



    N. ventricosa (k)


    N. lowii x veitchii


    N. maxima x TM


    N. ventricosa x XTiveyi


    Finally, N. ephippiata -- making the transition to upper pitchers


    Thanks for looking.

    Wow, very well grown! I hope my collection ends up having nice pitchers like that 5 years down the road. And the maximaXTM peristome is just brilliant!

    Very nice red hairy hamata too - do you have other hamatas that are the "regular" kind that have green and red/brown spots and aren't hairy? I was wondering if you do, what sort of different environmental factors the red hairy kind needs - I've heard they need it cooler during the day, so I'm just trying to hear different people's experiences. Also if you have any thoughts on if the two (red-hairy and not) are the same species or cousins, but closely related?

    I'm guessing that pitcher is perhaps a bit over 5cm tall. This form of N. hamata is much, much slower growing than the "regular" hamata, at least for me.

    Thanks for the kind comments...

    How picky/Temperamental would you say the Red hairy is? Compared to what other nep?
