    Tribute to the great N. Edwardsiana

    Amen to that

    Are those pitchers from your collection?


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    Fantastic!

    I second Ron's request for your preservation techniques / hints. Been considering stuffing with cotton or pillow stuffing polyester to help retain it's shape before drying but I haven't got any worth drying to test it out on yet.

    Great. Just great! Fantastique!

    Do you use the dry freezing method? I find it preserves the shape of Nepenthes pitchers very very well for a long time.

    N edwardsiana always remains my favourite pitcher plant of all partly because of its size and toothy peristome and partly because it has my namesake. Edward=Edwardsiana

    For those interested, the NECPS meeting program for this month is considering methods of drying and preserving parts of plants. (12:30 PM this Saturday at the Roger Williams Park Botanical Center!)
