    O lets see if I can remember all the questions.
    Um the orchid is indeed C. loddigesii (nice call)
    The big purple shrub in the middle I got as a small seedling labelled N. treubiana. Whether it really is.. or is N. sumatrana instead I can't really tell.

    I am really pushing it on space give me a couple years to put up some new structures.. The plants would be alot bigger if they had more room. This greenhouse is also not very condusive to visitors.

    As for the tongue thing.. that's my opinion of Dustin taking a picture of me while changing waterfilters in 88degrees at 80% humidity with my hair needing a major pruning! I also don't take the heat well... which is why I live in the great white north!

    Great stuff!
    My N. hamata still shows no signs of flowering but it has a ton of offshoot vines, making a maze through the HL terrarium. Dang it I wanted to be the first one! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Tony,
    88 degrees at 80 percent rel. hum. is an average day for me!

    You're killing me! I've always wanted a real New Guinea form of truebiana, but when Andreas took his pictures I don't think he collected any seed. It grows on escarpments hanging out over the ocean. I would expect it to be a hard core lowlander, but I know your conditions are more intermediate to highland. Even if it is a sumatrana-Wow!

    Trent - One of these days I will grab Jebb and Cheek and go see if I can figure out which it is. For a while they were considered synonyms and I don't have any location info on where the seed came from.

    It deffinately goes through a seasonal change in growth. I have it in a warm part of the greenhouse but even so during the Winter the leaves and pitchers are much smaller. Right now I don't have the space to keep it nice and warm all year but it seems to manage ok and come back bigger and strong during the warm months. N. sumatrana from Malesiana I keep out in the main greenhouse also and they go through the same growth phases.

    Will try and go snap a few photos.
