Thread: The burk

    Does N. burkeis pitchers get larger than ventricosa's? I read they can get between 6 and 7 inches tall. And can it be grown on a windowsill as easily as ventricosa?

    N.Burkeii is very similar to Ventricosa and will make pitchers within Ventricosa's size range. Your hybrid there will get quite large! N.Maxima and Bongso are both very large Nep's sporting large pitchers, so it will be no lazy Nep. when it gets going!

    Cool! I plan on ordering a N. sanguinea and bongso x maxima. They are supposed to be really large cuttings( the sanguinea plant is supposed to be about 13 in. tall) which is the only reason I'm buying them for $128( including the expensive shipping charges. Could a bongso x maxima be grown on a windowsill? And if you want to know where I'm getting my plants, just message me.

    The hybrid COULD do OK on a windowsill as of it's Maxima parentage. The Bongso half should not really interfere with pitcher productivity. And boy that's $$$ for a sanguinea and a hybrid! Wheew! [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img]

    They'd better be some huge plants! The most i've ever spent on a single plant was N. X Ventrata for $25 18" tall with 6-7" pitchers. I guess you could call me cheap. But for now I'm only into getting cheap plants. People who don't know much about CP (pretty much most of the world) can't tell the difference between common ones and rare expensive plants. Its more impressive for non-cp growers to see some cheap, big, common one like N. ventricosa than it would be to see something like a 3" diameter $50 N. Rajah.

    The plants themselves were $50.00 each. The sanguinea really isn't that rare, but this is my first time hearing about a N. bongso, much less a hybrid [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img].

    The sanguinea is supposed to have really dark red pitchers.

    I just noticed that they also carry northiana and raja. Don't think I'd buy one though.
