    Well Josh put on one heck of a show! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] I don't have anything that good but here's a few of the more uncommon plants:

    Very large (13cm tall 6 cm wide) (Whole plant is 20cm in diameter) N. veitchii Bareo Highland pitcher:

    This is a neat form of the plant with the speckling and "burbidgea like looks" pertaining to the colors.

    I just looked at yours, and haven't looked at Josh's yet, so- so far you are one up, but I'm looking at them next! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rolleyes.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] Also, the veitchii looks a lot bigger then 20 cm, did you mean inches in diamater, as well as everything else (in. not cm?) NICE PLANTS AND PICS!!

    Well those measurements are from 2 months ago also. (the plant size) The picher size is correct. Those measurements are present.

    I've looked at both. Very nice.

    Highlanders... Sigh. I need to think of some creative use of space in the house.

    wow thats so nice i like the veitchii
    A lady went into a grocery store and looked into the turket section. She needed a bigger one for her family, so she asks the stock boy: \"Do these turkeys get any bigger?\"

    The stock boy replied: \"No ma'am, they're dead\"

    Exclamation

    I know this has nothing to do with highland nepenthes, but what the heck [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] I've recently posted a topic of my n. x coccinea having an intermediate pitcher, well, guess what? It opened! FINALLY! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] And in adition, my rafflesiana surprised me with a huge pitcher! Its 3 times bigger than the last one!

    That's a very nice N. veitchii Dustin! I sure wish I had your greenhouse space! Did you get a heater set up for winter so you won't have a re-play of the tradgedy from last fall?

    Is that a cutting in a hanging basket or did you start it from one of the standard small 8cm/3" diameter plants? If a small one how long did it take to reach that nice size?

    I have the Batu Lawii form of N. veitchii and it seems to be rather slow. I also have a few slow growing hybrids: veitchii x truncata and veitchii x Trusmadiensis. I guess I assumed since N. veitchii is used in so many hybrids is was a faster growing species. Perhaps it depends upon form?

    Anwyay, nice job! Lets see all of the N. diatas! I'm getting one soon I think it is the same meadow form which supposed to be the larger, more impressive of the two forms (forest or meadow). Of course mine will most likely only be 2.5 cm in diameter when it arrives! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
