    Winter Nepenthes (with a Bonus of Cuteness)

    N. tentaculata


    N. x Exotic Lady


    N. singalana Belirang
    I got this plant by accident a few months ago labeled as N. glabrata. I was kind of disappointed, but as it turns out it's a really beautiful species. This is one of its fist pitchers (with teefs)


    N. boschiana x densiflora (probably BE from seed)


    N. sibuyanensis


    N. burbidgeae starting to look like something


    N. clipeata x (clipeata x eymae)


    Sneaky N. maxima "dark" taking over N. mikei's pot:


    N. ventricosa x mira


    N. smilesii


    N. truncata QoH x KoS growing its first pitcher for me


    N. ventricosa "red" drooling


    My new N. hamata when it first arrived last month from Germany


    It didn't skip a beat when it arrived. Here it is now growing its first pitchers.


    My fist Heliamphora, H. minor


    N. spectabilis x talangensis


    A baby pitcher on the basal of that same plant


    N. spectabilis North Sumatra


    And KITTEHS:
    Pheobes looking intense


    Sprocket


    And as a bonus, this is my axolotl Lancelot. He's actually grown a little since I took this picture. He is now about 10 inches long.


    He just ate a worm...

    Oh man!
    How'd I miss this?!
    Your collection is so healthy and vibrant and made of awesome!!!
    And gorgeous!!
    And your axolotl is a sort of cute I can't begin to handle!
    My friend was going to get one until she realized they ate bugs and she couldn't deal. I've always wanted one but I'm no good with amphibians- so I'll stick with large constrictors

    All of your plants look terrific! The maxima dark is SO dark, love it. I love seeing other people's spect x talangensis too, yours has great color, it makes me want to get better lighting on mine.

    and what a nice pitcher that hamata came with! I'm jealous.

    But cutest of all is lancelot.

    It's not a lizard, or a reptile, it's an amphibian, a type of salamander actually, and specifically a species that does not usually come out of the larval stage.


    Always wanted one! Yours looks great.

    Dionae: Thanks! Axolotls are actually a type of amphibian. The red fluffy things are gills, and his tail (which you can't see in these pictures) resembles that of a tadpole. They are related to salamanders. Actually, except for the pink coloring, this is the way regular salamanders look before they metamorphosize. Unlike salamanders, however, axolotls (usually) never undergo metamorphosis. They also have the ability to regenerate lost limbs and organs.

    i<3carnivores: Thank you! The one year aniversary of my Nepenthes addiction is this month, and it seems that all of my CP dreams are coming true!
    Snakes are definitely awesome too, btw--my Ball Python Eugene is watching me type this right now

    Dex: Thank you! I actually like the way your spec x talangensis looks with lower light...it's all red and awesome. I'm probably going to have to get trade away the maxima next spring before I go to college, because it's getting way too humongous. Most of the other stuff is small and will be for some time, but it seems maxima knows no bounds.

    He's an Ambystoma mexicanum which stays in the larval stage permanently. They're so cute and neat--I definitely recommend getting one in the future if you have a chance!

    i<3carnivores: I loled at the owl

    He be sneakin':

    amazing collection! N. spectabilis North Sumatra has wonderful color. And the animal, Wow! My first time to see this. Amazing

    ---------- Post added at 04:37 PM ---------- Previous post was at 04:30 PM ----------

    Can you give more pics of the axolotl Lancelot? Especially the whole body and close-up of his head. Is it expensive? And is it difficult to breed? Thanks.
