Give me a small cot and a hot plate and I could live in your greenhouse. I have thoroughly enjoyed catching up on this thread after being absent for a while. Can't pick a favorite, like them all. Great photos as usual.

Whopping pitcher on my N. maxima X (stenophylla X lowii):
Nice Paul!! wow love all the LFS growing in between the pots and such on the benches. That's Awesome!
I'm like you Paul. I love going to my GH even though its cramped and just look at my plants. I'm so ready to have more room.
I also notice you have a nep banished to under the bench?
The plant banished to underneath the bench is a tentaculata hybrid I got nearly a year ago that was not in good shape when I got it, and it has produced distorted growth the entire time. So, I've banished it to a very shady spot where I can watch it to see what it does. I'm expecting to eventually throw it out - I mean - its been nearly a year and still it hasn't straightened out, so I don't expect it ever will. If it wasn't a tentaculata hybrid (hard to come by) I'd have pitched it months ago.
New pitcher opened yesterday: N. (lowii X veitchii) X boschiana.
Wow what a gorgeous hybrid!! I signed up for one of Tony's N. ((lowii X veitchii) X boschiana) yellow x TM because I can only imagine that it will be quite the stunning plant. What was the tentaculata hybrid thats been banished?? Let me know if you ever decide to toss it! I saw the other day that lowii x tentaculata existed and I got pretty excited, although I've never heard or or seen one before that. That plant ^^^ has it all though! Tall, shapely, red, striped (over a yellow peristome), awesome lid, and it has nice spots that don't make it look like a maxime. Killer Paul!
Too weird to live, too rare to die.
Wow that plant is magnificent.
I'm with JB on this one - simply Magnificent!!
Just can't beat those colors....

Although it can't compete with that amazing boschiana hybrid, this pot of Cephalotus is impressive in its own right. This is the first Cephalotus I acquired (from the late Dennis Hastings) in June 2011:
