    Hi Mass, I'm growing out of sydney, outdoors all year round, with a makeshift greenhouse for 3 months during winter months.
    I'm getting roughly 50-60% humidity during day and around 70% during night.

    OMG Redlowii...your plants are amazing. Truly showing that no matter what size...neps truly need to be grown in a greenhouse/outside to reach their full potential. Amazing plants...perfect specimens really. The envy of any collection. Great job.

    Thanks Vraev, big compliment coming from you, I followed your flickr regularly when I started out collecting, was really sorry to see what occurred to your collection, I hope you've started rebuilding.

    The lid/upper peristome has been arching back on the last few pitchers, it's almost vertically parallel with the pitcher body, has anyone else had this happen to their N. truncata x ephippiata?





    some juvenile potential



    N. mira seems to generally dominate other species in hybrids





    The basal bunch

    Love the basal bunch!
    They are slowly and painfully killing you.....did you know that?

    How brainwashed are you?

    Thanks Victoria & corky,

    I actually think artificial lighting is even better than natural. Its not currently practical in my case, but if i could i would use additional lighting to bring out more of the color in the pitchers. Some examples...

    you humble me Sir. Glad I have been any amount of inspiration for you. I haven't really re-built it... and not planning on a serious collection yet. I just have a small exoterra where I am trying to get some plants going that I have left from my past collection. Once I settle, then I will probably re-start with a greenhouse. ��

    I see what you mean,they are well baked.Dunno if i could afford to run lights so powerful,think the street lights would dim when i turned them on
