    Not that any of these are not overly unusual, but I find they all have very nice preistomes... and I got a little creative with the editing [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    N. eymae x veitchii - The peristome will turn very dark red/brown over the next few weeks but I wanted to capture it at this early stage with just the slight red hue.


    N. maxima - This is an all green form. These pitchers ooze copious amounts of syrup during the day and this latest pitcher is up around the 25-30cm mark (10-12")


    N. truncata - Again, the peristome will get quite brown with time.


    Note, colour of the maxima is much more yellow than actual. I was playing around with no flash and only using a hand-held torch for lighting. 3 second exposure and moving the torch rapidly over the pitcher. The hybrid is flash only and truncata a mix of flash and torch.

    Thanks everyone.

    Julian, with my girlfriend looking on as I did them, her first thought was calendar or postcards. Just a shame we are not a mainstream hobby or there might have been some $$$ in the hobby!

    Eplants/Caps, I'm REALLY looking forward to seeing some uppers one day. At this early stage it is quite a nice mix with the Eymae colouration but Veitchii peristome, so I only hope the uppers have the eymae shape and keep the large peristome. Sure would be bazaar looking.

    Aaron.
