Here are a few photos of some of the late summer pitchers in my greenhouse:
N. spectabilis x ventricosa

whats the stuff growing around the villosa pitcher? i've seen it before but never knew what it was?
They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.
Great stuff there Bill!
I hope my tiny villosa will one day make pitchers that are so interesting to look at!
Your rajah is well on it's way! Is that a 10" diameter aquatic/orchid pot? I swear by those pots man - they're pure genius for highland Neps!
Amateur expert -those are moss spore sacks if I remeber correctly, otherwise they're moss pollen sacs. I need to read my moss book again... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]
Thanks for your words everyone [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
Schloaty- The rajah is about 10/11 inches across. It went from 5 inches across to this size in 2 years after I repotted it into this large water lilly container. I just wished I had tried that earlier.. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]
Robin- I grow my villosa on the floor of my house in more shade. It gets a bit more humidity there as well. Like the rajah growth has jumped ahead since the repot into the wide container.
Amateur_Expert- Guess Swords answered that one

Very nice Bill....Love the Ragah!
Can you give some details of your glasshouse setup in terms of temp and humidity control? Any pics?
