    Thanks a lot guys. I am quite fond of my Ventrata, just because I think it's going to be my first plant to start making uppers, although when I first got it I cut the stem during vining stage due to massive lack of experience and knowledge of what was going on! I've tried to postpone selling the Glabrata as much as possible and even toyed with the idea of making a tall *** terrarium just for it but decided against it for obvious reasons. It seems to be doing well on ebay so far though! @Mass, my Ceph has grown on me massively since I got it, though due to its banishment to the back of the terrarium (as its 'pot' is so tall) it only really grows on one side and the one I haven't shown you looks like crap

    You are doing really well as a windowsill grower! Kudos.
    (Count me as one of the folks who appreciates a well-grown Ventrata as well)

    Very long time without an update - my camera broke so i've resorted to using a phone!


    Newest purchase and its first pitcher in my care, N. Ventricosa x xTrusmadiensis


    Cute and tubby Aristolochioides x Ventricosa - these pitchers will have the dimensions of a coke can when bigger!


    N. Robcantleyi enjoyed the warmer months


    As did N. Veitchii x Platychila


    Finally starting to show its potential


    Horrible picture of Lowii x Boschiana (kind of disappointed by this plant)


    N. Spectabilis x Mira always looking nice!

    Thanks guys! corky- I got it on ebay for the grand total of 15 (very lucky!), it was Simon Lumb who was selling it, not sure if you know of him but he usually has Neps to sell for people in the UK. I agree with black knight, mine recently flowered and is finally starting to make uppers.

    I think the redeeming feature of lowii x boschiana is the uppers which really reminds me of vogelii or a more 'funnel' shaped eymae upper:-

    This is not my plant, belongs to a friend who grows it in Malaysia.
