    Supposedly, I was to spend 3 days 2 nights at my grandparents house. It ended up being extended till 5 days 4 nights so when I returned home, I was literally overcame with worry for my neps!

    Thankfully, the only casualties were a few seedlings of my mirabilis var globosa. On a less serious matter, it appeared my lowii x campanulata (which had aborted 2 pitchers straight in a row ) nearly suffered a dry out. A few other guys seemed to have stopped growing, so I expect a bounce back from them next month. Still, thankfully, none died!

    There were some pleasant surprises though:-

    N. x Ventrata

    N. truncata

    N. rafflesiana 'Typical'

    N. x (glandulifera x boschiana). The slightly deformed lid and mouth is because this was one of the few plants that nearly had a dry out.

    N. hookeriana (MT's cultivar)

    N. alata (MT)

    N. mirabilis. This is a wild plant. FYI, I did not poach this plant, it was bound to be destroyed along a hillside road due to construction (that area is inaccessible right now) and was the only single plant there that time. A colony of mirabilis about 1-2km away also had these red upper half pitchers.

    And now, for some of my old time favourites:-

    N. sibuyanensis. (what are you doing in my territory, tendril?)

    N. x (thorelii x truncata) (EP)

    N. bicalcarata

    And a Cattleya orchid blooms for me while I was away. If anyone can ID this orchid, I'll be glad (not that I expect it though, I've been getting comments about so many orchid hybrids being unidentifiable)!

    Thanks for viewing!

    Some new additions i got yesterday:-


    N. x (lowii x truncata 'wide peristome') [EP]

    N. sumatrana

    Got this P. primuliflora for free despite the fact that I find pings drab

    S. flava in the same pot with S. leucophylla.

    New year 2012 also means I'll have to budget more and spend a lot less on my CPs tis be the year where I wait for everything to mature.

    Man that is quite a mix of plants you have there. N. sumatrana is sooo

    It will be interesting to see how well you grow plants like lowii x truncata alongside N. bicalcarata, sumatrana, rafflesiana, etc.

    Very nice plants all around!

    Thanks Dex! IMO, the intermediate species and hybrids do exceptionally well with my lowland hybrids and species.

    I just can't wait for my sumatrana to achieve THIS:-


    This was taken by me at the vendor's nursery whom I got my sumatrana from.

    Ditto. Can't wait for my sumatrana seedlings to grow up. They're moving right along though.. speedy little buggers.
