    Chaniana and Friends

    Nepenthes chaniana is one of my favorite species. After two years of trial and error, my Malesiana clone is finally looking presentable.




    Last pitcher -- unfortunately, they discolor at the base after feeding


    Finally a good-sized rosette


    N. chaniana x veitchii -- got this one a while back as a guinea pig and a backup for the N. chaniana


    Continuing the theme of green with, of course, N. nigra


    Settling in well


    N. alata -- this is the smooth form (N. graciliflora if you like jumping to conclusions)


    Baby N. jamban -- thank you, Paul!


    N. ventricosa -- this clone is good and pale as it grows but still not the North Luzon (aka Porcelain) form



    N. sp. Langkawi



    N. clipeata x (clipeata x eymae) BE clone -- getting larger, but would prefer N. clipeata


    Different JDK clone but still not N. clipeata


    N. faizaliana this is actually N. maxima Borone, check pg. 6 for an explanation


    New N. 'Peter D'Amato' x maxima pitcher


    Older pitcher


    Basal shoot


    N. rajah x mira darkening up

    I recently got a N.chaniana and it hit the ground running. Great species. Good to see the N.nigra has settled in. The rest of the ones I have here have started going through a major growth spurt since the weather warmed up.

    I really like the picture with the Nepenthes in the foreground and the Byblis in the background. It gives the picture a really exotic look with most of the pitchers dangling in the air.

    I have a Chaniana as well but about half the size of yours. It's kinda slow for me but steady. I think one pitcher of mine has wavy wings, did you notice similar growth when yours was younger ?

    Is it BE's new clone? I have been meaning to get one of those as well but hadn't heard about how they grow.

    I haven't seen wavy wings. When mine was really unhappy, it threw out leaves without tendrils (you can still see one yellowing in the picture). I hear the MT clones are touchy and some people considered them poor growers or damaged because of the TC process, but I'm not too sure I agree with that.

    It is the new BE clone. Great plant, seems a bit hairier than some of the other clones as well.

    I am liking the coloration of the 'Peter D' Amato' x maxima
    Come to me flies and crawling bugs. This plant wants to give you great big hugs
    Aren't I pretty, don't I smell good? I'd come to you if I could
    But I can't so you must come to me, I'm sure we will get along splendidly

    I have MT's N. chaniana as well. I got it as a decent plant, and it grew quite well for me. It later died down, but not before it grew a small basal. That one has been much slower growing though, but I am hoping it will grow better as it gain some size.

    Nice also to see a true N. faizaliana (which I assume is from MT as well). There are many with this name that in reality is N. fusca "Sarawak".

    Regards,

    Christer
