It's been quite some time since I've done a photo update, and with a nice snowy Saturday upon me, I thought I would take a few shots. With the doldrums of winter upon my plants, pitcher production has been low, and I'm looking forward to summer coming for many reasons. I'm hoping to thin my collection out a bit come springtime, possibly trading some items and giving a few up to the NASC auction.
Lady Pauline is putting on some size! And is drooling
Here's something you don't see everyday. N. Mirabilis putting out some huge leaves next to a highland N. Truncata
Plus my N. Ampullaria is finally starting to show its distinctive pitcher shape. This one took a while to settle in, but is now growing really well.
I have 5-6 seedgrown N. Maxima that I received two years ago when they were smaller than a dime. These have all been very vigorous. This one is the only one with a neat heart shaped peristome. They all have very different traits, some having multiple growth points, large pitchers, good peristome striping etc. This one is my favorite. These are looking to get thinned out this spring. I definitely don't need so many varieties of this plant.
I had to throw this picture of poor quality in. It is an N. Rafflesiana I got from Andy a few years ago. It has some great color to it.
And finally, although not within the scope of this forum, my pride and joy Cephalotus!
Hope you enjoyed!
