    First pic thread in forever

    Hey!
    So, I'm just recovering from a year-long, near catastrophic bout with pests of various sorts, from that Hawaiin white scale to thrips to munching caterpillar things, and so on. I attribute it to the long-term use of fertilizers with indoor tray-based growing and hand watering, but that's the subject of another post. My man Jeff hooked me up with some Chernobyl-based insecticide that seems to done the trick, but this is after lots of losses to some of my favorite plants.

    Anyway, we're back in action, and the first round of decent pitchers have come.

    Let's start with a great new hybrid, N. Splendiana x Mixta:


    N. veitchii x boschiana


    N. sp. Langkawi. I love the red leaves on the basals on this plant:


    a more sizeable pitcher (nestled in diseased N. truncata leaves):


    and for reference, here's an upper, but it was out of the good light:


    N. platychila x veitchii:


    Here's a hybrid I made, N. khasiana x Rokko (ep)


    with the first uppers:


    N. (eymae x veitchii) x ((lowii x (spathulata x maxima)). This peristome will turn a deep bronze over time.


    N. lowii x spectabilis

    Awesome! I'm sorry about the losses and I'm glad to see you're back in business.

    I really find that N. sp. Langkawi intriguing.

    Well, at least the survivors are looking good. What was the radioactive pesticide you used?
