    Wow...Impressive! I especially like that vogelii.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Nice N. villosa; I haven't seen one available in the US for forever.

    That's a pretty N. vogelii as well. Has anyone else noticed that it's not a very fast growing species?

    I actually just bought another villosa here in the US a couple weeks ago. Just gotta keep your eyes peeled.

    What caught my eye however was that German Giant and the albomarginata 'Black'. Wish we could find those avail. in the US. Hummer's Giant and Kuching Spotted are as good as it get's here.

    Thanks for all the comments guys . If any of you have any tips on the villosa or any of the other species i got I'm all ears

    I got an AC setup within my tank to cool it, so the temps are not a problem. I'm just concerned about all the stuff i hear of the villosa rotting out. So I'm going to keep it moist but not wet i'm thinking.

    Ya I lucked out on the German Giant. Llyod from the OCPS was giving out a bunch of cuttings he had from TC. Here's the post if you are interested.

    As for the Albo 'Black', I got it from a friend here in Montreal. He had a few and sold a pot to be with 2 plants in it. I really like the species, it's very beautiful and seems to be growing quite quickly .
    cheers,

    Very nice rob, The villosa is just absolutely amazing!

    Nice job with the N. albomarginata, the black kind is really a nice plant.
