    For those who dont see the pics, they are hosted here on the PFT gallery. http://www.cpforums.org/gallery/nepenthes

    Hope that helps.

    Those are some nice sized plants you got, I really dig that N. ovata! Is that a 10cm pitcher? It sure looks like it!

    BCK and VFT guy, the pics were deleted from the PFT gallery deal before, but yes if they were uploaded refresh page would have brought them back up.

    Josh, nope! lol It is still a beautiful sized pitcher though:

    N. ovata-6cm pitchers
    N. macrophylla-4cm tall pitchers.
    N. fusca- 14cm tall pitchers.
    H. heterdoxa- 8cm tall pitchers (adult ones)

    Nice shots, Dustin! Finally got to see some of Tony's place (and Tony too). Very cool operation.
    We've been growing an adult sized H. nutans under a glass dome since early May. It was a birthday gift from Michelle (my lovely better half). It seriously needs constant high humidity, but is not as temperature sensitive as I thought it would be.

    Hey all,

    Not sure what happened to the original pictures, they definitely weren't deleted, but they are there now. They may have been uploaded while I was restoring from a backup, but I'm not sure about the time. Anyway, just wanted to let everyone know that I didn't delete them intentionally.

    PS: I'm on vacation, just checking in.. I won't be around probably!

    Trent, yes I would say so! I think my last H. heterodoxa went down the tube because I didn't have the misting system in the greenhouse yet...so with the exahust fan running it had that 'blow torch' look to it. Now I hae the system installed on a short range cycler that keeps the greenhouse floor perpetualy wet without drenching the plants.

    Pat, no biggie, just reloaded them up again. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Relax on your trip!

    Yes, I love the plants nep g [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] . The N. bongso I got from wistuba is a lot like your ovata. My bongso has fat leaves, with a very noticable peltated tendril. The pitchers (largest 3" [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] ) are almost the same, but more elongated I think. In time, the pitchers get even darker than your ovata's. Hmm, they look so similar, I think they should be declared the same species/subspecies.

    I took some measurements today and a couple photos.

    The pitchers are 16cm and the leaves are 10cm


    Just a close up of the newest pitcher on the right, which isn't fully expanded and colored up, and an older one on the left. What I found interesting is the 'teeth' are getting longer. I also did some counting and found that the teeth number was fairly uniform from pitcher to pitcher. Even on some of the much smaller older pitchers they had in the range of 41-43 teeth.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
