    Hi all. I just got back from Lake Tahoe, where I spent my holidays. Boy did it snow! Anyway, my plants made it fine, and I got some new pitchers while I was gone. Here's a sampling:

    First, a N. alata luzon "red speckled." It should get a little deeper color over time:

    Next up, my trusty N. maxima x ventricosa had twins:

    Here's my latest truncata's peristome:

    Here's a little upper pitcher from my N. x wrigleyana:

    And finally, here's a shot from my place in Tahoe, where we had about 6 feet of snow during the eight days I was there:

    That snow is beautiful! Here in Minnesota almost all the snow melted and the place looks like crap. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] Aw well...

    Great pics! Just like some previous posters I think the maxima x ventricosa is great.

    I love the pictures! The alata and truncata look spectacular, and I have never seen such a nice picture of x wrigleyana before. Obviously, mine needs better care. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Thanks guys! Josh, the largest pitcher on the N. maxima x ventricosa so far (the one in the pic on the left) is 7 inches from the base of the tendril to the base of the lid. 8.5 inches if you include the lid height. The width from side to side at the peristome is an honest 3 inches, which is what I think is so cool about this nep. Well, that and the fact that it's an easy, vigorous plant to grow. The people who see my neps in person are always enthralled at this plant.

    PS: I don't know if this is allowed, but the guy I bought this from about 8 months ago has an auction on ebay right now for the same plant: Ebay auction of N. maxima x ventricosa
