@drew: I will try to get an update of that monster Tiveyi ASAP ;-) (and believe it or not, I'm not a fan of N. bicalcarata. Shocking, I know!)
Happy New Year to all the passionate and curious TF folks. Best wishes to all.

Thanks for the video! Your plant is so awesome. It has everything I like, vibrant colors, large striped peristome, and massive yet elegant pitchers. Easily, one of my favorite hybrids. Congrats on the flower! Please tell me you are finding something equally impressive to cross it with.
Here's my good old thorelii X aristolochioides, making mo pitchers than you can shake a stick at. The plant is now over five feet tall!
And N. Gothica, finally, after sixteen months of care, producing a pitcher worthy of showing:
And my lil' N. naga, growing with great vigor and pitchering freely with every leaf. The peristome is starting to show signs of great things to come:
Nice color on the naga! I've got a couple of little seedlings, but can't seem to get them growing. Hopefully I'll find what they like and get them to this stage.
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.
