    Hi,

    I just bought a bunch of new plants, and I want to share them. I'm also going on vacation, so I won't be around to bug everyone- so I have to get a double dose in before I leave. Hope you like them.. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    N. diatas 'meadow form'



    N. spathulata x spectabilis


    N. spectabilis

    Nice!

    I hope you left good instructions for the person who will be caring for your new plants while you're away. Arrival/settling in is a crucial time for everything to be in balance and carefully watched for signs of any possible immediate cultural problems that need attention.

    Anyway, some very nice goodies there!

    Wow! Nice haul indeed! They all have nice coloration too, typical of Tony's plants. Best of luck with your new 'troops'.

    Lovely plants but I'm more interested in how you focused those in so nicely! What's your secret? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Good point Nepenthes Gracilis! What camera techniques are you using, with what kind of digital camera?

    Hehe! OK, here's the secret.... The fifty other pictures you didn't see! My camera is FAMOUS (well to me anyway) for taking blurry pictures. So I have just learned to take tons of them, and try to balance against something so that it won't move too much when I press the button to take a picture. These pictures also came out a little better than normal (imho)
    because I put them directly under my study light. Oh, the camera is an old Kyocera Finecam S3. I'm currently shopping for a replacement that can take pictures more reliably, and have a longer battery life.

    Also, Tony's plants are always very big, so maybe I'm not as up close as you think. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
