    faux Nepenthes -- for Wireman and others artsy types

    Actually took these photos back in March but forgot all about them. They are handmade pieces created by a woman who sells her work at orchids shows. While there may need to be some "tweaking" here or there (pitcher orientation jumps out at me in some instances), her work always impresses me. Thought some folks here might enjoy them.

    This piece was about 3-4ft tall.








    These were two smaller works.







    And while not a cp, I was impressed with the stamens on these flowers. (The plant was created to be about life size.

    She needs some work with the pitchers, but her flowers are awesome as always! I need to email her some pointers.

    THat is fascinating! Yeah, the anatomy of the pitcher plants is off, but very abstract!
    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.

    She would likely appreciate the pointers. I've always found her to be very receptive to constructive comments. Would recommend that you include excellent pictures with your comments. I know you are aware that English is not her native language, but it is also unlikely that she knows all the correct terms for the different parts of a pitcher.

    Amazing work! Almost looks like Nep X bamboo by observing the stem closely lol.


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com
