    My neps in Fall 2010

    Finally I have finished one of my project and have time to post some pics taken during the later summer and fall.

    Here are some pics:

    N. aristolochioides. It stopped pitchers during the summer due to unknown reason. But now it starts to pitcher again. This plant grows quickly for me. Generally put out a new leaf per 3 weeks.


    N. ampullaria (red) x N. sibuyanensis. I always love this red color.


    N. glabrata. Wait for it entering the vine stage so that I can see its upper pitchers.


    N. jamban. I once thought its pitchers are green, but found with age its pitchers are solid red. See the color change of its pitcher:

    first, green:


    after some days, reddish


    finally, red! Its right is the latest pitcher of N. ampullaria (red) x N. sibuyanensis. And the bottom is the immature pitcher of N.ampullaria x N.talangensis. In fact, there is also an immature pitcher of N.jacq on the bottom of jamban. But not clear to see.


    N.mikei. It has entered the vine stage. I am looking forward to its flower in the near future.


    N. x trusmadiensis, Borneo Exotics Clone 2. Very young, and the pitchers have not yet shown their characteristics. More similar to the pitchers of lowii.


    Here is the close-up. Teeth can be seen:


    N.vogelii. Its special color is really an addition to my collection. Looking forward to seeing its special uppers


    Enjoy!

    If you know other unique plants that can walk, can talk, can sing, or can eat people, please tell me and I definitely want to get one.

    Great growing! How do you cool the plants at night?

    Thanks for all of your comments.

    Hi, limeslide, I am growing my neps outdoor (although they are kept in a terrarium), and the night temperature naturally drops down to 60F or so (in summer, down to about 65F generally; in winter, down to about 50F). I need not to cool them by myself.

    Another batch of pics taken recently.

    N.ampullaria, green with red speckles


    N. ampullaria (red) x N. talangensis, BE Clone 1




    N. ampullaria (red) x N. sibuyanensis, BE Clone. This is the first pitcher that shows the characteristic of N.sib.


    N. xTM, BE Clone 2. The teeth are more obvious


    N. glabrata. A new pitcher


    N. jacq. Still very young. It's one of my favorite. Hope it grows faster and show the typical shape. Is it green form?


    N. jamban. My favorite.
    pitcher will be open soon:


    Just opened:


    inside:


    after a week:




    The insect-meal party of N.jamban, N. ampullaria (red) x N. sibuyanensis, and N. ampullaria (red) x N. talangensis


    A hybrid of N.albo with some by Sam. Will ask Sam for ID.


    Enjoy!
