    A couple of new acquisitions from EP so I can't take credit for these pitchers, but I wanted to share them anyway:

    N. [(lowii x veitchii)-yellow x boschiana] x burbidgeae


    N. (eymae x maxima) x [(veitchii x maxima) x veitchii]

    Lighting in this one wasn't the best so it's a bit washed out, but the white/pink combination on the body is really nice.

    N. spathulata x singlana:


    N. spathulata x talangensis, the new pitcher has coloured up nicely and the new one on the far right is looking to be at least a good 10% larger:


    N. veitchii x burbidgeae, only open for a week or two when this picture was taken:


    In contrast, the pitcher from a much younger/smaller N. veitchii x burbidgeae plant:


    N. burbidgeae x robcantleyi pitcher, pictures taken a week apart:

    As summer's coming it'll get more light and the rest of the peristome will turn the same colour as the stripes, which I think is a bit of a pity. Still, lots of time for the plant to grow and change.

    Borrowed a DSLR, so something better than phone pictures this time!

    N. burbidgeae x robcantleyi up the back, N. chaniana down the front and N. x trusmadiensis x burbidgeae at far right:


    Speaking of N. x trusmadiensis x burbidgeae:


    N. glabrata:


    N. 'Black Knight':


    N. spathulata x singlana going well as usual:

    Teeth!


    N. lingulata settling in nicely, looking forward to the first pitchers to have grown under my care:


    N. rajah x mira and N. spectabilis x aristolochioides. Funny to see the similar sizes, despite the parentage. I suppose it won't last, but at the moment you can definitely tell which one grows faster...

    Your plants are gorgeous. The colors are fantastic; and your live sphagnum looks very happy. I also wanted to say that I love your homemade Nepenthes/Orchid pots with the holes drilled in the sides haha. I'm always looking for ideas like that to save some money. Might have to go downstairs and make a few of those myself.

    Thanks Natch, was rather lucky to catch the lingulata when EP had some, it's easily one of my favourites along with the trusmadiensis x burbidgeae.

    Radagast, glad it's given you an idea! Less money on pots = more money on plants. I repotted one of my plants in live sphagnum, and even with the relatively low number of holes the sphagnum is happily growing out the side of the pot.
