    I'd been wanting to do some photos so here are some of my favorite highland plants and their current pitchers:

    Nepenthes aristolochides pitcher 2.5 cm in height



    N fusca plant is 45 cm in diameter pitcher 17 cm high


    N macrophylla 6 cm in diameter 2 cm pitchers


    N hamata 30 cm in diameter latest pitcher 17 cm tall


    N hamatas waiting jaws


    N rajah 32 cm in diameter


    N. rajah pitcher 5 cm in height



    The hamata, fusca and rajah attained these sizes since last June when I got 'em between 5 and 10 cm in diameter. I can't wait to see what they look like by next June!

    Thanks again Tony great plants! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Wow! Very impressive! What kind of container and medium is your hamata in, and what are the low/high temps? I got mine from Tony, too, and it looked great, but i think it got a bit toasted by USPS or something, because the growing tip was dead as soon as the first new leaf had unfurled.

    Is it likely to put out a shoot from a leaf axil with just five or six leaves on it if the tip is dead? I sure hope so, but i'm preparing myself for tragedy. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    Exclamation

    Is the growing tip just broken. Or is it black and dieing. If it is black and dieing ask Tony if you can refund for a different Hamata. Ifyou can then put a insurance on the package. So if USPS does something bad again they will have to pay.
    What is the Propability of the Propability?
    If someone is addictied to therapy how will you treat them?

    Hmm that's not good. Keep me posted on it. It is unusual for the growing tip to have died inside the unfurling leaf. Perhaps some moisture got in there and caused it. If it progresses and the plant dies or you want to send it back for exchange since you just got it, let me know. N. hamata is a tricky one. It damages easy and really hates shipping. N. hamata will send out side shoots even at the size I sell them.

    Sorry Phil... Postal service insurance is against loss of package only. It does not cover killing live contents. (O how I wish it did&#33[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
