    The Nepenthes that I'm growing

    Hey folks

    I wanted to dump some nepenthes photos in here and hopefully get some tips from all the experienced growers out there.

    I bought my first nep, a ventrata, about a year and a half ago. Intrigued, I starting buying other varieties last fall. Today I have roughly 20-25 different species/hybrids.

    This first photo dump is mainly older photos. I have more current ones on my camera's memory card. I'll work on posting them later today.

    Very nice. Are you sure that's x'Gothica' though ? Color and morphology looks all wrong, especially in the peristome.

    Thanks for the replies. I'm not 100% dead sure its Gothica, no. I traded a local grower for it. I saw the plant before he chopped it up for cuttings, and the lower pitchers were relatively large and very Gothica like. He was under the impression that it was indeed gothica. The mother plant was fairly large, had a stem of several feet at least. I assumed the cutting I got was from the vining portion, hence the lanky growth and these upper pitchers.

    Its possible that after he cut the plant up and by the time I got the cutting from him two months later that there was a mix up. Or maybe it wasn't gothica to begin with. What do you think?

    Heres a few more pictures of it that I just scrounged up

    i think this pic from the pitcher of the month thread resembles whatever im growing. (props to carbonetc, i hope its cool to quote your post from another thread) i should disclose that i traded for my exotic lady from the same grower a few months prior to getting this "gothica". Perhaps these uppers are exotic lady/lady pauline?

    I like that N. Benevolence. Reminds me of tobaica with it's inner speckles. And isn't N. Exotic Lady a beast? I love that plant.

    Beautiful, you've got some great neps. I love your ramispina, it's one of my favorite species out there.

    heres a few more recent shots. i dont know all the ins and outs of how to properly write latin names and hybrids, so im just writing names in lowercase for now. i figure you'll probably get my drift.

    x wrigleyana. these are all the same pitcher over a period of time






    bicalcarata. about 24" diameter. do you feel lucky?



    x outramiana x x splendiana




    spathulata x robcantleyi
