I just want to share my amazement and excitement about two relatively unsung Nepenthes, albomarginata purple form, and ramispina
Both of these have very cool habits and pitchers that are unique and striking. *They both happen to be very fast growers, as well. *I looked over at my highland terrarium today, and woah, there's another pitcher on the ramispina. *Crazy
Anyway, enough talk.
Okay, i gotta say something else. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] *Another cool thing about albomarginata is that it is much tougher in dealing with low humidity than most lowlanders. *I took my rafflesiana, red ampullaria, campanulata and the albo out of my lowland terrarium and to the presentation i gave in January, and in spite of my caution, the raff, campanulata, and amp all looked like they'd been nuked
Two weeks after the presentation
after sitting out on display for a few hours for two days. *The albomarginata never skipped a beat. *It's very hairy, which probably helps.
Now that it's too big for the terrarium, i'm trying to grow it on my windowsill for the summer. *I'll let everyone know how it goes...
...that's it in the back. *Sorry, i can't find the photo i thought i had. *I guess i better get a better one while it lasts, right?
See that pitcher on the far right? *I swear it wasn't there two days ago!
Edit: *Okay, i'll get a better photo and bump this thread at that point, but i noticed that you can at least see the 'horns' (can someone please remind me of the proper botanical term?) that all the pitchers have if you look at the immature pitcher to the far left. Me parece un diablito.
