    Man how do you get the drop to 40's 50's year round? My HL terrarium is 80 day 70 night. Works rather well. I'm growing northiana next to aristo next to hamata next to helos.

    The weather around here is pretty mild year-round and the natural temperature drops at night mean that I only need to open a window to cool the entire growing area at night. It works rather well and seems to give many plants seasonal cues as well (for example, my Utricularia nelumbifolia are flowering non-stop right now).

    A couple of odds and ends:
    N. faizaliana #2
    I picked up a second just kidding, this is my only N. faizaliana, more typical looking N. faizaliana at the BACPS Show

    N. chaniana BE
    The BE N. chaniana has hit one foot across, not bad for a plant still in its 2.5" pot

    N. chaniana x veitchii

    N. sp. Langkawi
    N. sp. Langkawi -- this plant confounds me; it sulked all winter, dropped all of its roots, then started regrowing this spring as if nothing occurred. Indochinese dormancy?

    So it appears that the large plant that I was originally growing as Nepenthes faizaliana was mislabeled. As it was getting larger, I noticed that it didn't look like any of the clones Malesiana Tropicals had released. The lid wasn't orbicular, among other things. A little snooping around on MT's price list and several Google Image searches later, it turned out that I had an N. maxima from Borone, Sulawesi, collected at 300 masl (which would explain why it hates cool weather). I actually wasn't convinced that the plant was any sort of N. maxima until recently (at one point I even thought MT could have an N. faizaliana introgressed with Sarawak N. fusca but that wouldn't explain all of its stranger traits); what really sold me was this post on a Thai plant forum showing the spitting image of my plant as N. maxima Borone and a photo of a juvenile from Borone on Tony Paroubek's gallery. One vendor I had talked to in the past said Malesiana sometimes makes these mistakes (like sending N. burbidgeae x edwardsiana as N. burbidgeae). I will have to go back and edit my old posts to reflect this, but at least I picked up a real N. faizaliana earlier this year

    N. glandulifera
    N. glandulifera -- this is the largest plant I've seen from the BE batch of seedlings (please don't correct me if I'm wrong)

    N. burkei
    N. burkei -- new arrival

    N. ventricosa "Red"
    N. ventricosa "Red" is pretty different than my first N. ventricosa, I can see why some people claim that the "Red" form is introgressed with "N. alata" of some sort; this is also a new arrival

    N. burbidgeae x campanulata
    I am not a huge fan of artificial hybrids but I had a moment of weakness over this cross: N. burbidgeae x campanulata

    Looking good! Too bad about the faizaliana, just seeing that apical appendage would make oneself doubt the ID. Still maxima Borone is a nice looking plant anyway. Let's hope your new faizaliana doesn't turn out to be stenophylla I just got myself a burkei too, after killing the old one, great species. N. glandulifera is a definite favorite too, and is a decent grower for me, it just hit 6 inches in leaf diameter.

    Regards,

    Christer

    Still a nice maxima... even though typically much cheaper. Thats great coloration on the Bongso by the way. Clue the emoticons on that Thai plant forum I have no idea what emotions 90% of them convey. Lol pretty mind-boggling
