    Just some random Nep pics

    I was using the DSLR on the Byblis so took some pics of the Nep pitchers as well. Disclaimer: The cool-growing plants are quite new so some of the pitchers came with the shipment...not that I can grow intermediate/highland Neps so well here in HOT Singapore.

    N. spectabilis x hamata




    N. robcantleyi




    N. ventricosa x aristolochioides




    N. robcantleyi x veitchii


    N. gracilis (red form)




    N. campanulata




    N. khasiana




    N. gracilis (mini spotted form)




    N. benstonei




    N. ventricosa x campanulata




    N. rowanae
















    N. pervillei











    N. x hookeriana

    The N. robcantleyi looks to be the start of a wonderfully colored plant. I look forward to seeing how the cute fuzzy N. robcantleyi x veitchii turns out as it grows. Please continue posting progression pics for us. Thanks for the eye candy!

    N. robcantleyi x veitchii - two plants; one with redder and more squat pitchers.







    N. maxima x veitchii - new leaves and pitchers are getting larger








    N. veitchii (Bareo) - a pleasant surprise that it is enjoying the heat




    N. spectabilis x hamata - new leaves are smaller but still producing pitchers (this one I'll have to keep cool for long term, I guess)








    N. ventricosa x aristolochioides - one of my fav but see how the new pitcher looks like




    N. burkei x hamata - two plants reacting slightly different; the latter seems more sensitive to heat








    N. robcantleyi - nothing more to show than that emerging growth tip after 2 months!


    Last but not the least...

    N. ampullaria x ventricosa aka Lady Luck

    I love your N. rowanae!! its my all time favorite lowlander. I had four varieties but never got to see them mature anywhere close to how nice yours are doing.

    I'm interested to see how you Campanulata is doing, maybe some more generic pics of it? And also how you grow it, conditions and soil type etc.
    Looking for N. Campanulata hybrids. Also would like to grow some nepenthes from seed. Growlist/pic thread: http://www.terraforums.com/forums/sh...-Pete-s-plants

    Hi pmatil,

    My campanulata is in full sun from 2pm to 7pm this season. Temperatures ranging from 30-36C at my balcony. Pitchers are not the best at the moment with the heat but the plant rewards with producing offshoots and flowers continuously. I have used perlite and sphagnum moss with good success but switched to ordinary garden fire kilned clay. That media is liken to broken up bricks, leca, seramis, red lava rock and akadama.

    The pitchers are larger during the cool (warm to the rest of the world) months.

    Thanks! I need small plants. The largest was a bicalcarata at 3ft tall including the pot and almost 5ft across with the leaves held up. THAT took up one-third of my balcony space and I had to give it away. LOL
