    Sundry photos from my grow room

    I am by no means a talented photographer, possessing neither the skills nor the equipment. However, fellow cp grower mcmcnair dropped by recently and kindly took a few photos of my plants. So I thought I'd share our joint handiwork here.

    First we'll start off with some greener pitchers and then get progressively darker.

    Uppers on N. "thorelii" x alata-Kondo, a small hybrid by Bruce Bednar:


    N. splendiana uppers. This plant performs very well indoors in low humidity -- it has over a dozen well-formed pitchers on multiple vines:


    9"/22.5 cm upper of my male N. Redneck (("thorelii" x' truncata) x maxima-l), a home-brew hybrid by a local grower:


    Upper on N. "thorelii"-d x Tivyei-EP (solid peristome), another home-brew (also male) by a local grower. The speckles are actually all on the inside of the pitcher:


    N. alata x maxima, 9"/22.5 cm uppers on a 10-ft./+3m vine, originally from a cutting I got from mannyherrera a couple years ago:



    3 uppers together:


    A shot of my tangled vining plants:


    A young splendiana x (tiveyi x veitchii), from a cross made by jk some time ago:


    First fully-formed upper on my Song of Melancholy, flared peristome:




    Now, getting a bit darker: The better of my two N. eymae x ephippiata, 3 years from seed:
    (recently opened)


    (colored up peristome)


    Didn't have a better background, but here's the whole plant in a 1 gal. nusery pot:


    Now something much darker -- SG N. eymae x (jacquelineae x' izumiae), clone 2:


    Clone 1 of the same cross, 3 years from seed:



    Black pitchers, green tendrils:


    And finally, my N. (maxima x spectabilis) x jacquelineae, 3 years from seed:



    Thanks again, mcmcnair!!!

    Interesting, I haven't seen some of these species before. I love your grow room, it's the ideal setting for me - looks natural. Is it possible to see more shots of the whole space ? I love that shot of tangled vining plants.

    Thanks, guys. maxima, I don't have many other photos, but I do have some Youtube videos. Though not as striking as some greenhouse-grown beauties, I think the plants are doing rather well in household humidity and under artificial lighting. These should give you a better idea of my setup:

    Remarkable coloring on your N. eymae X (jacquelineae X izumiae)....much darker than my clone! Nice.

    Love that flared peristome on the Song of Melancholy, and exceptional eymae x (jacquelineae x izumiae) and (maxima x spectabilis) x jacquelineae!

    Is that clone of (maxima x spectabilis) x jacquelineae the same as your DP on proboards? because the flaring of the peristome seems to have subsided?
    I love the smell of nep pollen in the morning..........smells like victory

    The (maxima x spectabilis) x jacquelineae is the same as the one in my proboards dp. Some of the (max x spect) x jacq peristomes reflex more than others. The most recent pitchers are showing a lot of reflexing, whereas earlier pitchers from this past winter did not -- the pitcher at minute 3 of my first video reflexed very little & is still very flared, albeit mahogany colored now. I don't know whether the greater reflection is a response to warmer weather/lower humidity or part of the plant's transition to intermediate pitchers (it's just starting to vine now).

    The Song of Melancholy also had a very dark, nearly black peristome when it was making lowers. The uppers have retained the shape, but not the coloration.
