    I'm not actually sure what the source nursery is. I purchased it from a popular Nepenthes vendor from New York.

    burb x talang definitely has wonderful potential! And I like the shape of that bosch x platy, would bet the uppers are phenomenal.
    I find it interesting that a lot of people claim glabrata to be picky; mine was fussy for a couple years and doesn't like summer heat (I attribute the former to bad soil), but it's been pitchering non-stop since its repot into healthier soil for several months now....

    @hcarlton, I'm watching the boschiana x platychila pitchers with great interest, I think the peristomes are reflexing less, if that continues I'll be very happy. What are you using for your glabrata potting mix? I was using a mix of LFS and orchid bark, but changed to pure live sphagnum a few months ago. It seems to be a bit happier but I want to give it another few months before making a final judgement, could just be a good phase.

    Thanks! The appendage was already present on the pitchers the plant had when I received it about 10 months ago, and you can see the top of a pitcher in profile between the stem and the tag for the plant to its right. Also, this picture was taken about a month ago, it's actually the pitcher on the lower left in the previous picture:

    My general Nepenthes mix is various amounts of LFS, pumice, and orchid mix (contains large peat chunks, orchid bark, and charcoal), the amount of each varying depending on the plant's preferences. N. glabrata currently is in a mix more on the airy side, but filling in with live sphagnum between the lager bark chunks. What seems most importantly is it likes it on the cooler, more humid side, but very bright light.

    oh cool! very elegant looking pitcher. Does the little ling thing do anything that you can notice? like accumulate drops of sector or anything?

    Thanks, might move it closer to my (admittedly puny) evaporative cooler, see if that helps a bit. If the live sphagnum doesn't do well I'll try out a mix like yours, too.

    Nothing that I've seen so far, no nectar and it's my understanding that there aren't nectar glands anywhere on the lid. Makes it even more curious then if that's not the appendage's purpose, ehh?
