Great update, Paul. I can't say enough how nice your plants are, especially after having seen them in person (you should charge admission).
It's sort of a relief to see that your N. naga doesn't have the supposed ruffly lid yet, as neither does mine nor Johnny's. Hopefully they pan out well, though.
Truth as Circe. Error has transformed animals into men; is truth perhaps capable of changing man back into an animal?
Thank you kindly :-) I DO charge admission to The Geinhouse! Didn't you get your bill yet? Ha!
As for the naga seedling, I'm not willing to call it yet, one way or another. You just never know when growing from collected seeds. Look what happened with Dean's inermis seedlings! Mind you I'm not complaining about that case. :-)
Wow, pic overload! The Helen is quite stunning, but I'm finding the species to be really eye-catching this time around. The ramispina and the tenuis especially. I'll have to get a couple when I get around to making a wistuba order. Great pan pic of the greenhouse too, you've given me something to live up to one day!
Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
There is far more to everything than meets the eye.
Great photos, as always, Paul! The N. sibuyanensis X TM is very appealing. There seems to be a lot of variation in that hybrid, but I haven't seen a bad one. The Nepenthes 'Helen' is much like the old
N. spathulata x spectabilis (of course) that has been around for years, but looks a bit more squat, perhaps from BE's form of N. spectabilis.

Black dragon is looking very magnificent!
Do you happen to grow any low landers at all?
