I'm very proud of it...
Martin, that looks amazing. I'm also trying to cultivate a hamata. I wasn't having much luck before, but I have recently changed the growing conditions. What conditions do you provide for your plant?
Well, since I only have one, here's some pics of it. *Even though I don't have other neps, bicalcarata is still my favorite nep. *The pics were taken about a week after I got it. *It is now 2 weeks and the pitchers are starting to turn a bit red. *You can see there's some black areas on one of the leaf. *It was damaged before the guy sold it to me [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] *But the attached pitcher seems alright. *Will it be alright?
Here it is in its mini homemade greenhouse [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
Here you can see the damaged leaf.
That's it for now, I will post some more pics of my other cp's soon.
Beautiful bical. I see why you like it.
Weird...I have the feeling I know exactly where you bought that plant, Larry. It just jump out at at me. But I could be wrong...
The bicalc. looks fine. Appears to be some mechanical damage or perhaps a little sunburn on the one leaf which shouldn't affect the health too badly. The new leaves look good!
My favorite (don't let the others know)... N. dashy koto
My favorite Nepenthes is always the one currently pitchering (I guess I'm a fairweather kind of guy)... Here are some new pitchers from my collection:
My rafflesiana (from PFT)
Newly opened N.hirsuta (spotted) pitcher
Developing ventricosa pitcher (my darkest one)
That's it for now. ;-).
Dyflam: Amazing picture, is the plant yours? Interested in trading? :biggrin:
Patrick, this plant is really a baby. I figure it will be awhile before I risk taking a cutting. Thanks for the offer though.
