    Hi Nflytrap

    I'd like to ask you (and everybody!) to please resize your photographs before posting. I am on a 21" monitor with a high speed connection and not only did I have to scroll around to see your photos but it took a couple of minutes for the images to download. There are MANY people here that still have dial-up and don't have large monitors and that can be agonizing!

    I downloaded your files to check them out. Your image resolution is WAAAY to high for the internet. It is a 300dpi file. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] It should be only 72dpi. Your pixel width was 1600. This makes your image over 20" in physical length. This is MUCH too big!

    If you are using a digital camera and you are taking photos for the internet, you should set your camera's resolution to 72dpi and the lowest pixel setting. Your files were approximately 5.5MB! If you have any kind of image editing program that comes with digicams, you can resize photos using that. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Everybody loves to see photos but it makes it much harder to see them when you can only see portions at a time.

    It would be greatly appreciated if you (and everyone) could scale 'em down a bit. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Thanks!

    Hi!

    As a point of clarrification, the dpi (dots per inch) of a photo is not relevant to posting them on a computer monitor. Whatever the setting, it will display at whatever dpi your monitor is set at. a 640x480 pixels picture will display the same no mater what the dpi setting is.

    The ONLY think that counts is the total pixels (tall and wide) that the picture is. When I post a pic here, I usually size it to a maximum of 640 x 480, and save it as a .jpg file.

    Aslo, you can usually set the amount of compression, as .jpg is a vairably compressed format. You can really save a lot by compressing, but the quality degrades the more it is compressed. Some software might not give you this option, however.

    Now, on to the topic at hand. I have a several-months old N. x gubbler. It is a FREAKISH GENETIC MUTANT!!!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] I've had several pitchers develop with no lids whatsoever, and I have what looks like a siamese twin growth point. Tonight I'll post a photo. I'm still not sure what kind of hybrid or species it is, but check out the photo later on and let me know what you think.

    Hehe, it's probably one of their messed up N. x ventratas [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] . I know mine has some odd growth habits. When I first baught it, the growth point turned into a little fist and decayed. Then, it made 3 growth points, and they were all growing fine, exepct for the occasional lid deformity on the pitchers. Then, the highest growth point makes a tiny white leaflet, which would have no hope of turning into a regular leaf. The thing just looks wierd...

    Sounds like that, nathaniel. On the up side, it's been pretty fun to watch! And it does grow quickly and pitchers regularly. It's just, well.... it's not right. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/rock.gif[/img] I'm a little bit frightened by it, actually.

    Ok, here's the genetic mutant. On this picture, you can see one of the lidless traps. Two other pitchers have sort of vestigal lids. The other side is the wierd multi-growth point. This is one messed-up nep!
