Nice mirabilis! Does it stay pretty much this color?
Yes, the mirabilis stays this color. I have seen several that are darker, kinds purple, but have not been able to get my hands on one yet...
I had this guy for over two years before it finally settled in and pithered for me.
Your izumiae x maxima is perfection!!!
but the Nepenthes x Mauna Loa is butt ugly lol!!!
My Mirabilis var. Ech. started making pitchers almost instantly I got it bare-root. But over time the leaf size has gotten smaller (first it got bigger real fast) and I don't know why. Conditions are the same but I suspect that the roots have overtaken the pot. This one seems to have extensive root system.
Looking for N. Campanulata hybrids. Also would like to grow some nepenthes from seed. Growlist/pic thread: http://www.terraforums.com/forums/sh...-Pete-s-plants
Great plants, Keith!
I'm with you on this one; izumiae X maxima is a favorite for me too.
