Beautiful plants and great shots! I really like the vent x insignis.
Thanks Keith and Aionios
I do notice the body fades quite a bit after a while though. They start out dark maroon and pink and fade to a dull/lighter color. The peristome seems to do the opposite. It's starts out a white cream and slowly darkens to a lime color.
Yes N. ampullaria 'lime twist' is a tc clone. I had heard that it is a weak and unpredictable clone as well.
Finals are finally over! Yay! Now for some fun things…. Nepenthes pics
N. maxima is really starting to show her stuff off!
N. mirabilis has finally put out a pitcher after sulking all winter long. Should get a really nice pitcher on the next one!
Close up of that great peristome
Going to have a few new creatures in the shade house soon.
Does anyone else get condensation views under the peristome? Seems pretty frequent on this Nepenthes.
Lowland N. veitchii
Raff finally opened and it had a huge pitcher size jump
Currently my favorite The colors are just amazing!
Yep, spec x vent has been one of those ones I've longed for for a while. Also, love the mirabilis peristome! I have a bunch of seedlings only just getting any real size to them, I'm dying to see the peristome on them show up....
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.
Michelle, everything is looking great! I love the color of the mirablis and the jump in pitcher size of the rafflesiana.
Thanks for sharing!
Congrats on finishing finals....
