    Might as well watch the new episode of south park while this downloads... I decided to classify this months gallery.

    Highlanders:

    highland chamber foggy


    highland chamber "sunny break" (when humidifier shuts off) about every 15 minutes or so, depending upon outside RH as the tank draws air from outside the house.


    N. aristolochioides x thorelii new pitcher 9 cm high this plant looks very cool when the pitchers are forming, like tiny egyptian sarcophaguses! When they open they are very similar to N. klossii only much darker and not having the hooded top but otyherwise very similar and satifies me til the real N. klossii comes out! Also, it is a very fast grower going from 12-15 cm in diameter with 6 cm pitchers to 30 cm in diameter with 9 cm pitcehrs in only a few months! I wish i knew how large these pitchers will get when matured... anyone... anyone


    Newest N. inermis pitcher 9 cm still juvenile but definiately latterally compressed! come on uppers!


    N. lowii (Gunung Mulu form) 4 cm high on 9 cm plant.


    Lowlanders:

    Lowland aquarium 75 gallon overview


    Seems many people are getting N. bicalcaratas lately-who can blame them? Here's a photo of one of my young ones (20-30 cm in diameter) making the charachteristic fanged pitchers but is still sort of "bean shaped". When the plant matures the pitchers are almost completely round (at least on "red trap" form).


    N. Isamo Kusakobe hybrid pitcher 12 cm high on 10 cm leaf


    N. maxima x ? #2 Yellow. 20 cm No idea what this plant is. Every pitcher is slightly different in shape pattern or color (or lack of color) even when left in the exact same conditoions for a year with no varying variables... a mystery.


    N. northiana pitcher from Sept/October


    N. sanguinea (Orange form) 15 cm pitcher. Not too orange but this is the very first pitcher the plant has made in my conditions (opened only two days ago)


    How irritating, the first 30 cm N. truncata pitcher formed behind the leaf so I can photograph it nicely....


    N. truncata x veitchii hybrid this one has a lamina (leaf surface) of 10 cm and a pitcher of 20 cm! Add the petioles and the leaf is 15 cm - still an ugly plant though!


    N. truncata x veitchii's hairy petioles


    N. truncata x veitchii's lid which has large fringe element nubs on it.


    I hope you had fun looking - it sure is fun growing em! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    WOW! That's a lot of neps! You are very lucky to be able to grow them all, and you obviously have the greenest of thumbs!

    I can only dream of a 30 cm pitcher!

    The orange sanguinea is interesting. If someone would have asked me what that was, I would have guessed a Judith Finn.
    Great pics, Josh!

    Hey Josh, super job as always! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    The Isama Kusuawabe hybrid cross likes you too! Mine are going beserk in the greenhouse....I don't know what it is! Seems it's another weed Nepenthes. The one hybrid tho (I only got 1 cutting of) is a pretty lowlander I suspect...it made it's first pitcher a month or so ago and it was misshaped...there's another on the way so maybe this one will be better looking. Color is fabulous on it! Hope it makes a better pitcher so I can snap a pic of it!

    Dustin, how big will the Isamo Kusakobe pitchers get? That other complex hybrid I got from you (that has N. rokko in it) is real slow going so nothing good to post yet, just about 3 small leaves since arrival.

    I don't have green thumbs. I kill everything that is not inside my grow chambers. If I put it in the house, it's dead. if I put it outside (asside from Sarracenia) it's dead. It's just that I make the climates inside the terrariums as good as possible with a lotta light high humidity and right temps.

    The highlanders do not do as well when the fog is not thick enough to block out the light as it does in fall winter and spring. Summer is a rough time on the highlanders. The hamata didn't pitcher at all from the August and September formed leaves & tendrils due to the heat, but it did start to climb! Now the tendrils are dropping in the correct manner and I should be able to post a photo of an intermediate N. hamata pitcher pretty soon! Who would have thought a 10 cm baby N. hamata would be a climbing vine in under 18 months!
