    Open for business


    Next one, hopefully will be stunning

    New friends:



    BE clone


    Nepenthes villosa Tambuyukon -- maybe in 10 years I can retake his/her picture with Mr. Roosevelt (thanks Jeremiah!)


    N. albomarginata Balik Pulau, Malaysia -- not sure how well it will do in ultrahighland conditions but doesn't seem to care



    Maybe in a couple of years I'll have some captive-bred N. chaniana to give away... BE clone has some interesting differences. The leaves are more strongly petiolate, the pitchers are much more laterally compressed (so it looks skinnier), and it's got some nice red coloration, which I have never seen even after growing the MT one outside in full sun. The hair isn't denser on the BE one, but the hairs on both clones are the same length despite the size difference, so the MT one looks comparatively sparse.

    Just need an AW N. chaniana and my green fuzzy hoarding will be over.

    Zounds!


    I didn't notice the splash of red on the Nepenthes nigra until this morning


    I'm surprised how much this pitcher inflated after opening


    N. 'Peter D'Amato' x maxima


    Not bad



    Mother was an N. inermis on G. Talang; no doubt this is some variation of N. xPyriformis

    The Nepenthes talangensis is strong with this one

    Hooked boss is finally appearing at 11" across



    One of the Nepenthes jamban plants from Paul -- I'm not usually good with live sphagnum but whatever type Paul has is really vigorous


    The other N. jamban is a decidedly slower plant (nice leaves though)



    New N. nigra pitcher; this thing is super exciting


    Speaking of super exciting, N. villosa takes well to coffee (although the topdressing doesn't)


    N. stenophylla cutting showing it's alive after 4 months


    I keep trying to trade this N. chaniana x veitchii off, but I guess I can keep it...



    One more time -- N. x Pyriformis

    In-situ


    The pinnacle of low-tech


    Bunch of vining hybrids banished to a nearby table


    Hybrids


    Vining into the dark


    Seems like N. x Pyriformis has hit a growth spurt


    Obligatory N. chaniana picture


    Not a Nepenthes


    U. quelchii is starting to spread to my other pots


    Not a Nepenthes

    New friends:


    It might just be Nepenthes klossii mania setting in, but this seed grown N. glandulifera almost looks like one...



    This N. boschiana (G. Sakumbang) will, hopefully, grow into its looks; the leaf coloration is pretty dramatic


    Group shot

    Edit -- thanks a bunch, Keith!



    N. bongso showing a lot of potential


    May not be 100% N. bongso -- I could go for some N. izumiae

    Hey Christer, was waiting to respond to you with something you might like. It seems like these MT plants take a long time to settle in.

    I finally have a decent pitcher on the way on my N. faizaliana actually N. maxima Borone; the plant is 25 cm across now


    The last few pitchers were doing their best N. ephippiata impression, much to my frustration
    -----


    Despite quickly approaching a foot across in diameter, I am humbled by the fact that wild N. chaniana pitchers easily get that tall


    Warmer nights recently may have encouraged N. graciliflora to start growing again

    New friends (residing in a small lowland tank):

    N. kongkandana -- thanks Natch! (strikingly similar to a young N. smilesii...)


    N. mirabilis var. echinostoma Sajingan -- thanks Hawken! (I have never had something so similar to limp lettuce have so much potential)


    Propped up
