    nice thingies!

    T.

    Ps.. stop with that N. hamata var. black thing. Variety is an officially recognized published variation of an individual from the normal species. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] Not to mention people keep asking me to buy the black variety when there is no such thing.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Maybe I need to register it! lol I just think it is extremely black from all other N. hamata plants I have seen. Most are purplish, this one is jet black on the teeth.

    Maybe you ought to get some of those dental bleaching strips. They have treatments for that kind of thing these days.

    Nice plants. Very, very nice. I didn't realize that spectabilis looks so much like rafflesiana.

    I've been thinking of getting khasiana lately due to its plasticity (not that i'm usually a fan of plastic plants, mind you). Sort of just crossed the threshold of my awareness. Do you have any pics of the whole pitcher or plant?

    PS That rajah is something else! How come no pitchers?
    There's no 'a' in perlite.

    Thanks guys! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Nathan, I'm looking into some of those crest whitening strips. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    I can get pics of the khasiana itself and more pitcher views.

    As for the N. rajah, it was attacked by nutrient loving earthworms! Those rotten soil suckers made my soil GOOD! Blast them, well, repotted the plant and did a 1 hour soak to drown the oxygen breathing varmints and any eggs they might have blessed me with. So now, the plant is much happier in a larger pot, with nutrient poor soil and a top dressing of live sphagnum which leaches tannic acid into the soil to help ward off any pathogens or any other worms. I know how they got in there last year too, so it was kind of my fault. But there is a pitcher inflating on the plant finally! Just ask Tony!
