    A few new Nepenthes pictures

    Was doing my fertilizing today so I decided to take some pics as well,


    N. robcantleyi





    N. truncata "red flush highland"


    N. veitchii x burbidgeae


    I'm really into N. peltata right now but mine is in an awkward place to take pictures so these are the best I can do. My pelota is doing crazy leaf jumps right now so I'm pretty excited about it.










    Anyone know how big they have to get before N. peltata starts becoming more squat and tubby?

    I've heard rumors that most of the non-sg plants in cultivation may actually be hybrids, but I don't know the basis for that...

    Well I suppose it would be a natural hybrid? Still a plant well worth growing in my opinion

    Looking good!

    Any chance we might be able to see them without the LED lights? Interested to see the colouring on the N. truncata.

    Sure I can take a picture with just the 6.5K T5's on later today, it does have a "red flush" to it so its naming is somewhat accurate.

    Heres the pics of the N. truncata "red flush highland" with the LEDs off. These pics are pretty darn close to what it looks like in real life. When the pitchers first open they're a light pink then they slowly darken to this maroons red color over time. The color really does have a "flush" appearance so it certainly is appropriately named.







    those splotches are actually nectar that have oozed out. You can also see some collecting around the peristome and lid. Out of all the varieties of truncata I've grown, this on secretes the most nectar. I recently pruned all the dead pitchers and leaves off and when I picked it up the pot was absolutely sticky like it had dried syrup on it.

    its a nice variety of truncata, I have two other ones but they are quite small right now. It will be really neat to see how it progresses into maturity. I'm really hoping the whole pitcher flushes red.

    Anyone else have a mature truncata of this variety? how is its coloring?
