    A small update on my setup since I've moved things around.





    I noticed at this angle the peristome glows orange and is iridescent. Easier to see the stripes too. Very cool in person, kinda lame photo tho.


    I love this plant, but it barely gets any attention from me. Vent x sib. I've noticed mine to be very finicky with the tendrils. Too close to the dirt? Dead. Rubbed against it once? Dead. etc

    Youre telling me! Vent x sibu hates me i have better luck with sibu x vent. Both plants are vining now but not even a single upper although the teldrils do loop! Do you think i should let it loop around something or what?

    Yeah maybe, I've heard that if they can grab something they tend to produce that pitcher. But I have no vining neps yet so I can't give real advice hah.

    Great plants, roxor!

    As for the vent x sib, I find that my sibuyanensis will not pitcher unless the tendril is able to really bury itself in something. I usually create a very thick layer of sphagnum in its pot and the pots around it, just so that can happen. Not sure if your vent x sib cross is the same, but perhaps it's worth a try.

    The picture with the iridescence? That's the Song of Melancholy.
    Interesting yeah I've heard that too. Trouble is I don't have any moss to give it, and all of the tendrils it makes just hang out of the pot into the air. It has another pitcher en route so we'll see if it keeps going or just aborts.

    I was on vacation for a week and told someone to water my plants I left behind. Well, he didn't but they're all okay anyway (sorta dry tho). Anyway this is what some of them did while I was gone.

    Sib x cope popped, looks good.


    These didn't die. In fact they look pretty huge so that's good.


    New inermis


    WOWW First 'Gothica' pitcher in a long while and it made this monster. Like 6in high!




    What are we calling this? inermis x ?? colored up looks amazing.





    I thought this was cool. It's my derpy orchid with one good leaf and it decided that 7 or 8 flowers was a good idea.


    Four opened so far.


    I think that's it for now. But next time...
