    Thanks all! Yeah, the Rebecca Soper uppers are rather nice. Not very colorful, but the elegant shape certainly makes up for that.

    Those plants look great! I love the moss in the N. truncata lowland SG plant! Happy moss- happy Nepenthes! But that picture of N. graciliflora 'Pink'... I realize that the species is closely related to N. alata, but that picture looks *exactly* like the N. alata I use to grow. Do you, or anyone, know the morphological characteristics that differentiate the two?

    The so-called N. "alata" a lot of people grow is graciliflora. I would also bet money the common clone of "x ventrata" is actually a hybrid with graciliflora instead of alata. Some major characters that distinguish the two are: graciliflora lacks a noticeable indumentum on the pitchers and/or leaves, has a more bulbous pitcher bottom and thin neck, also tends to lose the wings while alata will sometimes keep them (if I remember this correctly, I may have that backwards), graciliflora also rarely has much patterning, and it is found on most of the islands in the Philippines while the true alata is currently confined to Luzon and small islands nearby, if that.

    Huh, I read the 2013 paper about it by Creek and Jebb, and you're absolutely right. Funny how that works out. Cool stuff!!

    got some more pics to put up:
    N. 'Miranda' lower hiding behind the light cord: this one is pushing 7 1/2", and isn't fully expanded yet, so it may count as my largest pitcher ever!

    And an upper framed in the window

    One of the better pitchers on my N. ventricosa "red"

    A pair of ventricosa x gymnamphora

    Lower on N. 'Rokko' Exotica

    Most recent pitcher on N. truncata Lowland SG

    N. Viking #19 x (maxima x trusmadiensis)

    N. talangensis actually seems to be an easy grower, though that happy moss may have something to do with that....

    N. clipeata x (clipeata x eymae)

    N. eustachya "red" Bukit Barisan seedlings

    'Rebecca Soper' lower

    and the oddly colored uppers: I like how they get random dark patches and speckling

    Glamour shots of N. graciliflora "Pink," my most elegant pitcher



    N. 'Gentle' promises much at maturity

    N. copelandii pitchers from 2 separate growth points
