    Hi,

    my plants doesn't look as impressive as those of Josh or Dustin at the moment, but I thought I'd share another new one.

    This is the first pitcher of a N. eymae I rescued from local garden center after watching it sitting there for more than two months time...



    Cheers Joachim

    That's pretty nice right there!
    What kinda "garden centers" have you got over there? If you can find a Ventrata or Coccinea around here it's like "wow look they have exotic plants"! How big is that N. eymae and pitcher?

    Hi Josh,

    the pitcher is around 10cm in height. Thomas Carow's nursery is specialised in CP and they sell their standard program through DIY stores and garden centers (I hope it is OK to mention Thomas, ********** is not on the german market AFAIK). It was the first time I saw N. eymae, but hairy N. truncata are available quite often and N. maxima and N. singalana can always be bought.



    (I rescued this plant in horrible conditions last winter for around 5E~5$US...)

    It is always funny to see you guys in the US looking for Cephalotus or S. oreophila, both are very easily availabe here in Germany.

    Cheers Joachim

    A Cephalotus in a gardening center? HA! Just goes to show which country is being run better. lol

    Great snag Joachim! If I found one of those in my local Lowe's heck that'd be an omen!

    Joachim,

    Is the "hairy" form of trucata the highland form? It sure looks like it by the color. And you got it for $5?

    Regards,

    Joe

    Hi Joe,

    yes, it is similar to the highland form. The plants sold here have red pitchers, not black like those from Rob. They also look somewhat different to the pictures I've seen on Tony's HP. Benjamin has some more pics of this clone on his page:
