    Here's the right side of the highland tank, the hamata has started to vine already and had to be moved down one shelf.


    N.hamata's vine is nearly black and has the texture of leather-even the newest/youngest stem is black quite soon after forming. I like this plant more and more! The leaves at the top are thinner and the tendrils longer so maybe it will do some intermediate or uppers soon...?


    N. rajahs latest output 7.5 cm



    N. burbidgeae x edwardsiana seems to be coming along-I heard it from the source himself that this is a natural hybrid from seed collected from N. burbidgeae! (not a hybrid made in a nursery)


    N. ephippiata about 3.5 cm high


    The newest pitcher on the N. inermis will be a big 'un (mid left unopened yet and still dark green)


    I hope you like them! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Great photos & plants Josh [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
    How long have you had the rajah? And what what size was it when you got it?
    The hamata stem buds seem to to be developing [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] Very good colour.
    I hope to get a N. burbidgeae x edwardsiana in time [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rolleyes.gif[/img]

    cheers

    I rather like the manner in which you are growing the inermis. Does that work well?

    I picked up the N. rajah when it was about 2" in diameter (about 6cm) in June 2002. Now the plant will be around 40cm when the next leaf unfurls completely.
    This one and the N. hamata have been real fast for highlanders, for a comparison the inermis came at the same time!

    Very impressive! Your plants look very happy and healthy.

    What is your set-up, in particular, how are you cooling. I think you may have posted this alreay. If you have tell me where or when so I can do a search. I need to set up a lowland area for my plants, (2) small rajah.
