So today I am mostly wondering what everyone thinks of this plant here. It was generously given to me by Jerry Jackson and all he knew about this plant was from the label. It says x ventricosa but I don't see that influence in the pitchers. Any input is appreciated! And just a few other pics while I'm here :P
Maxima X Aristolochiodes- Sorry about the blur (We are getting a macro lens.... someday)
Spathulata X Ramispina-
Sibuyanensis X Lady Pauline- A little older than the last picture I posted of this one
Izumiae is pitchering!
And my Robcantleyi with his huge lid!
Last but not least the results of my first time growing D. Regia, and from seed none the less
I don't see any ventricosa in that either, but wait till Johnny or Paul get a look. Both of them can identify Neps like no one else.
I don't think there is any ventricosa in that plant, so its probably a mislabel. It does, however, resemble the N. alata "boschiana mimic": http://s1109.photobucket.com/user/Ne...2-1-1.jpg.html and
Nice, you're off to a great start!
Thanks for the responses everyone. One interesting point with this alata is that every pitcher (including the ones that are developing) have an indent on the lid of the pitcher that I have never seen in any other nepenthes. Does anyone else have a plant that exhibits this?
Good morning everyone
Starting out with my wierdo here, and I apologize for the fuzzy camera photos on this one. This is a doubled P. 'Pirouette' flower I found... Note the two spurs and extra petals
P. Yucca Doo 1713
N. Maxima X Aristolochiodes
N. Robcantleyi QOH X Maxima
N. Burbidgeae x Platychila
N. Izumiae is pitchering for the first time!!!! And the anticipation is killing me.
N. Robcantleyi QOHxKOS just opened and the new pitcher is about three times larger than the last one!!!!
N. Maxima X Truncata (e) red
Unknown orchid that is re-blooming for me
Well thanks for looking guys! Because of the lengthening days here and increased humidity pretty much everything in the greenhouse is getting ready to pitcher! So next update should be a good one

Lookin' good. That x'Pirouette' flower is real oddity. N.alata "boschiana mimic' has been recently reclassified as it's own species, N.graciliflora.
