Everything looks great Keith, especially the rafflesianas and ampullarias ! Your photo of "reinwardtiana" is actually Nepenthes maxima though.

Thanks for the kind words! I also had my doubts about the "reinwardtiana", but have kept it labeled as I received it.....

There was a batch of "reinwardtiana" seed that went around few years ago that all turned out to be Nepenthes maxima. This is very likely one of those plants. Having said that though, those seeds produced some of the nicest maximas I've seen. Paul B. has a few exceptionally nice ones from this mislabeled seed.

I am jealous of your climate. And growing ability of course.

Agreed - the "reinwardtiana" is undoubtedly from seed that was distributed to several growers and all of those turned out to be N. maxima variants. Some are better than others - some are downright spectacular - and most, if not all, are well worth keeping. Some, based on what I'm seeing, are actually a kind of dwarf variation!

Paul, the climate is key; it certainly does a lot of the hard work. And is very pleasant for us humans too .

Paul, thanks for the feedback and background. This may well be on of the dwarf variations, it has remained very compact.... I will be sure to correct the label on this plant.
