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