    Nepenthes gracilis/Capslock: That's what I'm doing... But I meant perhaps 'more focussing' on a genus... I am unable to only have Drosera, or Pinguicula (Ah, CP addiction), I have a lot of genus and species currently... The main problem about Nepenthes (as Sarracenia) is moving, and the room they need. I am moving too often to make proper installation for 'picky but holy moly!' species, but I haven't been able to give away my N.alata, ventricosa, x coccinea by that time, I HAD to keep at least the hardiest ones [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]. But it is gaining me back little by little, I now have a truncata, ramispina and hirsuta, and plan to have few more... but never more than my Drosera for sure. This forum sure give me back the Nepenthes addiction, just like 5 years ago when I had over 20 differents species [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Thank you guys for sharing!

    I'm a sucker for veitchii. It's a beauty, Dustin. I really like the sibuyanensis too. Might have to try one someday. I hear they are fairly heat tolerant.
    Our Rokko is female too, but she's not flowering right now. I've got a kampotiana x (thorelii x wittei) male just starting to open. It's a nice cultivar we hope to register soon. If anyone wants to try a hybrid, contact me. We could split the seed.

    Nep G, very nice shots! The N. glabrata is getting the very nice "stained glass" look. How large is your plant/pitcher before it develops? Does it get the pitcher shape and color when young? It looks like yours is hanging (judging by the pot clips) so I'm thinking yours might be far larger than I'll get when I eventually order one!

    N. rajah will make pitchers hanging in the air/hanging over a pot as that's the only way mine are being formed in the last few months. The latest expanding pitcher tendril is over 35 cm long and hanging under the shelf still inflating). One new tendril however has just recently thrust itself into the N. macrophylla pot and stopped it's downward advance so we'll see how a "grounded" pitcher compares to a hanging one.

    Lithopsman, N. glabrata is fairly fast, Mine has really taken off since I gave it full sunlight (removed the 60% shade cloth).

    Trent, yup sibuyanensis is happy as long as it's not in lowland conditions. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] So far, it appears to be a happy camper. I'm crossing my N. x rokko with N. x gentle. We shall see if it is successful which I am praying for! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Howdy Josh, yes it's in a square hanging pot (I make my own, just slit the rim with a knife and insert the clip). Anywho, that pitcher is approx. 2.5 cm tall. The pitcher buds are minute! About .5 cm tall. Maybe a little bigger by a micrometer maybe. The color gets more vivid as it ages, but yes the tiny pitchers on younger plants (when mine was a 7cm diameter plant) are quite colorful if they get alot of light. Mine only had faint streaks but when it was moved to the greenhouse it still made a few polymorphic pitchers that were very appealing, since then it's a weed...about 15cm tall and 18cm in diameter and rapidly going to exceed that soon! And now the more mature pitchers are being produced, many hanging and a few resting in the pot. It really is a beautiful plant without the pitchers, very graceful.

    For the N. rajah, I haven't had any great sucess with pitchers being formed in the air as it's size now, when it was a 8cm plant the pitchers did form in the air but now since it's larger, I feel that I will obtain better results if I try to mimic the "on the ground" scenario. If a tendril does however happen to shoot off the designated mossed area I will let it go to see what mine will do, the next leaf may do that as it is quite large right now and not unfurled or even started to and it's about 16cm long. We shall see and thanks for your input on your plant!

    Howdy Dustin,
    Thanks for the reply! What you said to Josh was helpful for me, too, but a few parts were a little confusing... Maybe it's the grogginess from the flu a few days ago... If you could copy/paste it and add in a few periods, that would help. Sorry if I'm a pain, but if you've ever had the flu, you'd know that you don't really feel like decoding run-on sentences... More or less I just want to know about how the quickly the pitchers start to look "mature" in high-light conditions. Mine is currently a few inches tall (maybe 3 or 4") and the pitchers are small (a little under an inch) and still pretty juvenile, but they are getting some good little streaks of color. I agree about the gracefulness of the plant, the leaves and tendrils seem to "flow". Did you ever notice that baby plant's pitchers have the same form as uppers, just less color and a lot littler? Sorry about my long, confusing, probably boring post, but alas I have nothing better to do. *cough* [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] Really!

    I am back..

    The pitchers start to get less polymorphic when the plant get's larger which happens in high light conditions. I haven't timed the rate at which it takes to get the larger pitchers. Maybe it's because I have soo many plants to look at! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] Once the plant gets acclimatized it really does take off. Upper pitchers are way different form the juvenile ones. They are more like a tube rather than a squat pitcher. They start out quite skinny and flute up and out. An exaggerated way to show this is an upside down pear.

    Here's the N. sibuyanensis as requested, note the very wirey tendrils:
