    got some huge nepenthes?

    hey guys i recently did a search on the internet and found a thread started by joel(nepsaroundthehouse). It was from 2008 and he showed this huge ventricosa x maxima with twelve or more flowers and who knows how many growth points, and was wondering if anyone else had any nepenthes like that that they would like to display? It is my goal to have a nepenthes look like that eventually and im well on my way to achieving it considering my miranda just keeps making new growthpoints! My maxima fake eymae clone decided to throw out four basals as well so its going to look bushy too very soon.

    I've only seen a few of those at the SF Conservatory. I can post a few pics here if you'd like.
    These were taken by my phone so be wary of sub-par resolution.

    A variegated alata



    Huge truncata



    They had a few of these ventricosas too


    Next time I go I'll bring a real camera and maybe something for scale.

    I imagine it must be a pain to repot those.

    Kevnep, I can't help but notice you often ask people to post pics of their plants, yet you never post any of your own. I'm not sure why this is, considering I've seen your photobucket account and you do have some nice plants.

    Anyway, could you post some pics of your plants on here?
