    The curious case of Benjualaneae Button: It's pitchers have been getting successively smaller. The small pitcher in the top right is its latest one, lid open and everything. What the heck?? It appears to be that the next tendrils have more oomph to them, but I really wonder why this N. jacquelineae was doing this. Hopefully it gets better.



    N. hamata finally starting to produce a pithcer, I hope!



    N. glabrata pitcher finally open and coloring up.



    The other N. glabrata is pitchering just fine, but taking forever and a half to color up.



    Just for fun, U. calcyfida. I love when the leaves look like this.



    D. prolifera being prolific (unlike the spec x aristo right behind it.)



    Carnivorous friends!



    Thanks for looking.

    I also added an update to the N. argentii progression at the top of page 4.

    Nepenthes faizaliana produced its first pitcher for me. I have high hopes for this plant. Can you spot the D. prolifera?



    If only I would have had it for six months, I'd enter it in the POM contest.

    OMG! New Nepenthes species found in Borneo!

    N. quadcalcarata!



    Call me crazy but I thought that was a neat desktop background. XD

    I really liked your N. bicalcarata. Do you remember how old/large the plant was when the first fangs appeared? Also, I wonder if it's possible to keep a miniature version, like a bonsai tree, through constant pruning and keeping the pot size small.

    Thank you emre. My plant had fangs of some kind pretty much as soon as I got it which was many years ago when it had a five inch leaf span. I, too, thought about trimming or something to try and keep it small, but in my experience, and from what I've heard N. bicalcarata do not like being mutilated or stressed at all so it could very well be a bad idea to mess with it.

    After seeing how Nepenthes react to stunting the only way I could think of successfully getting a stunted bonsai sort of N. bicalcarata would be by letting it get infested with some sort of pest until the leaves are stunted.

    IDK though, N. bicalcarata are just really big plants, I don't think there's much hope in trying to hold one back.

    Nice and healthy plants you have got there. Hopefully, you will have the true N. faizaliana, and not the N. fusca "Sarawak" which has been sold under that name. Although that plant is nice too.

    Regards,

    Christer

    I know, I hope that too. But I don't think AW would be one to sell mislabeled species.

    I've never had fangs on mine yet, but their leaves are around 2-3'' right now. I've had this "bonsai Nepenthes" in my head as a thought experiment for quite some time. Will be thinking about it. Thanks for the info.

    I didn't think so either, yet that is what happened when I got a specimen from him in 2004. Lets hope that what he offers nowadays is correctly labeled.
