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:
(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!!!
