    I love getting off work early! Gives me unexpected time to fool around! Here's some pics I took tonight.

    First up, N. clipeata this picher was hiding behind the leaf and on the non-window side of the terrarium. It's almost 8 cm high! that's a little Anthurium scandens seedling standing up there by the pitcher.


    Here's a nice dangling N. x Trichocarpa also 8 cm high:


    The N. campanulata is prospering from the ungodly heatwave we've had (almost 100*F in my area monday). This pitcher is 7 cm high!


    It was big enough to get a semi focus on the thin peristome, that's all nectar gooped up on the minute teeth. I had to mess with the contrast so you could sort of see the parts.



    And from the highland chamber comes my newest N. aristolochioides pitcher at 5 cm, it's not fully opened/colored yet but should be in a day or so.


    Hope you like them! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Anyone else have some new pics?

    Of course we do!

    Love the N. aristolochioides. How easy do you find it to grow?

    Awesome pics Josh. When you have time could you take a photo of your Highland Chamber for me that would be really great.

    Your N. aristolochioides isn't that small Josh! Only a few sizes smaller than mine. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Thanks folks!
    Aaron, the aristo is a "easy" grower if you have all the right highland ingredients (fog, wind, cool temps and bright lighting) but still it's a little slow, that may be due to the fact it's still in the rosette stage. Mine really doesn't like heat at all and last summer wouldn't pitcher in July & August because the night temps were up about 5-10 degrees above the rest of the year depending on outside temp influence.

    Lithopsman this N. clipeata is Wistuba's Clone U. It came as a dime sized rosette and has taken about a year to become this 10 cm diameter plant. Hopefully now that the pitchers are feedable it will gain size a bit quicker! Theres a big clipeata climbing a support post at the orchid shop near me and I really dig it!

    EC, Here's a recent pic of the busiest area of the highalnd chamber.

    It's a bit more overgrown now than this photo from about a month ago. It's hard to get an accurate photo cos the window doesn't cover the whole front of the highland chamber. It's only about 1/2 of the size and placed in the middle, so theres a lot on either end you can't see in the pic. Usually the tank is full of thick swirling fog from the humidifier.
