    Some new Nepenthes, et al.

    I received a nice shipment of Nepenthes and a few epiphytes today.

    I was very pleased, the plants were packed in huge plugs of live sphagnum, so they should pretty much start growing immediately.

    In 6 months I will be able to offer up some competition in POTM.

    N. sanguinea:



    N. rajah petiole:



    N. petiolata:



    Some kind of bromeliad, a cultivar, it was free:



    N. rajah!!! So excited about this one. It is a BE tc clone:



    Another bromeliad, "fireball hybrid" can't remember the genus:



    A Tillandisa, montana "purple form" :



    I also got a very small truncata "paisan" and a bunch of other Tillandsias and an Utricularia dichtoma. I arranged the tillies to grow along the back wall of my setup and hopefully they will look good there.

    Sorry for the bad pics, they were handheld.

    Woohoo that is so nice! Petiolata is definitely and under-appreciated and under-rated plant. Grows lickety-split and is downright gorgeous. What's not to love about this!

    Thanks!

    The petiolata is exciting, I thought it looked like a good plant, and it has fairly big pitchers. I can't seem to figure out where the name came from though.

    The rajah is also great, it is small but I am sure it will do well.
