    Jealously doesn't even begin to describe my feelings for these pictures..... oh, how I wish my biggest plant wasn't just a simple 'Miranda'.......
    That truncata x ephipp is incredible looking!
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    Dude that LxVxB clone is absolutely incredible! I love the shape! Definitely gives Paul's a run for it's money haha.

    Also, that trucata x ephip is out of this world too! I can't wait to find one of those stunners at some point!

    Shwing!

    P.S. About that glandular hybrid in question. Do you think it could be a mixup? The leaves/growth tip and even nodes look very glandulifera like to me. Even without all the hair they would still bear resemblance to glandulifera. I'm don't think I would have immediately called any of the pitcher features out as glandulifera-like off the bat, but the pitcher colors and the lid are also reminiscent of the plant in question. Looks like it should be cool either way!

    Do you have any of EP's glandulifera hybrids (besides this one if it does for some reason have G as a parent)?

    Everything else looks great too! I'm with everyone else that thinks the maxima x spectabilis is awesome! I don't understand why that's not more commonly grown.

    Peace!

    Too weird to live, too rare to die.

    I don't think it's a mix up, apart from the strange occurance of glands, there is almost nothing about this plant that looks like N. gland, the photo is just a bit deceptive being zoomed in, so you don't get a sense for what the apex and overall leaf looks like. It looks more like a veitchii leaf and that's probably where most of the hair came from. I'll have to take more photos to prove the point, these are some that were taken before...








    The only gland hybrid I do have is gland x spect and i bought this as a large plant (8inches across and 8inches high) from the last release, meaning this is as big as gland hybrids from EP get at the moment, where as the (low x veit) x {truncata x (spect x north)} is just over a metre in stem length and I've had it for more than 2 years, long before the N.gland hybrids started popping up.



    The only reason I noticed the glands, is that it recently produced a basal and while I was digging around to see if there were multiple basals I lifted the underside of the leaf and was schocked to see the glands extending all the way to the lower part of the pitcher, I brought over one of my N.gland species plants and the similarity was quite puzzling/striking. The glands become less prominent further up the vine, it seems to be more pronounced on the lower/basal leaves.

    That pitcher was overshadowed by ferns and was freshly opened/not receiving much light, this is normally what they look like when they just open





    It's a pretty crazy clone, I've seen a few other clones that another grower has...... hope they don't mind me posting them....as expected plenty of variation


















    Anyway the plant is just nuts, it's the only plant i have where the tendril's roll inwards toward the stem, rather than outwards as is normal for 99% of the plants I have seen. Maybe it shows complex hybrids can somehow obtain traits that only species carry after all Now let's see how much selective breeding is required to create a N.klossii without actually using aristo/klossii in the mix

    Thanks hcarlton! I was silently following some of your plants for a number of years, there was one that really was an eye catcher, but doesnt seem to be on your growlist, it was something like spectabilis x (thorellii x aristo), anyway it looks very nice and I wondered if it was something you had created, because I never saw that hybrid combination else where, btw i really dig the plant art....




    I actually have one of my own, was lucky enough to get $ prize for it whilst at uni, which I subsequently squandered on an EP order



    It was glazed and all but this is the only photo i currently have, you ever consider adding a lid to yours?

    Some CP themed silvergoods







    made a few others, including a pretty funky looking villosa, but never finished off the polishing part which takes forever
