    A few Nepenthes

    After being overseas for 3 week I came home to some pleasant surprises. Since the Sarrs are all dormant Neps will have to do for now


    The N. lowii x campanulata is finally throwing some beautiful pitchers and seems to have a very toothy peristome:



    I had thought that the N. gracilis var. nigrapurpurea had maxed out it's pitcher size but I was wrong. These are not huge by any means but they are a bit larger than the previous pitchers:


    A N. (ventricosa xX Tiveyi) x truncata hybrid putting on some size and color:


    A lowland N. veitchii showing some first signs of striped peristome:


    This huge basal came unexpected from a great friend a little while back and is looking fantastic, one of my favorites: N. ventricosa x truncata



    And lastly a rather peculiar leaf/leaves emerging from the growth point or N. (X splendiana x X Mixta) :


    One side of the growth point:

    The other side of the growth point:


    I attempted to peel back the future leaves but was not able to tell whether or not this is 2 leaves emerging from 1 growth point of if it's 1 leaf mutation. Regardless I've never seen this on any Nepenthes before and figured it was worth sharing! Enjoy

    Nice plants! I love that deep coloration on the nigrapurpurea! That would be a terrific plant to make crosses with.

    Nice
    But you're making me jealous

    Just finally got my 1st pitcher on my N. lowii x campanulata

    From the pics I've seen on CP Photo Finder they look cool when they get big
    &
    Very nice looking N. (ventricosa x tiveyi) x truncata
    Can't wait from mine to do something / anything / LOL
    Looks like it's going to be a nice cross

    Thanks all for the kind words:

    @DEX: If only it would just stop growing and flower already...

    @DETCHEEZ: The N. (ventricosa x tiveyi) x truncata (at least mine) has a rather large lid for the size of the pitchers. I'm not too fond of the dark peristome (makes it look too much a like a N. maxima) but maybe once it reaches maturity the pitchers will be more distinguished. As for the N. lowii x campanulata I'm very happy to see it do it's thing! Can't wait for those mature pitchers on it.

    Has it contributed to some awesome crosses yet? I love that color.
