    Beautiful collection!

    Question about the vent x rc: Does the peristome curl back eventually or does it remain like how it is in the picture? Hoping mine turns out like yours, regardless.

    Hi

    If you are referring to the picture immediately below the title, see the one below that: this is what it looks like some time after the first picture was taken. it gets a fair bit darker, the peristome folds back a little but stays quite flared and the neck grows longer


    I havent seen many pictures of mature vent X RC. does anyone have any to post? Id like to see what kind of variation there is in this cross?
    Cheers

    It's definitely much smaller than your's but here's my vent x RC:


    The pitchers color up pretty red in intense light in my experience.

    Great growing Morbus!

    and yes, I fully agree that they are very dependent of sun for color

    a few more recent pictures. Im very surprised that the GH is still this productive given that this is one of the coldest winters I remember. there are flowers all over the place and most plants are still pitchering - smaller and less colourful, but still pitchering.

    ventricosa X stenophylla


    truncata 'passion'


    truncata X ovata


    veitchii X lowii


    platychilla X (spathulata X lowii)


    boschiana (anyone have bosch pollen?)


    veitchii X burbidgea


    a few Neps growing on the front gate - also still pitchering in force; outside and 100% exposed to the elements. these are tough plants!





    petiolata


    burkei uppers




    inermis


    (rokko X bosch)X tm
    pitchers from summer are MUCH darker.


    one of my homemade seedlings
    again, summer pitchers are much darker


    a very surprising winter inermis X singalana upper


    lastly, veitchii X boschiana
