    Well, after six weeks of home-remodelling exile, I'm back in the dusty house. My plant-sitter was, well, she tries hard. But she just can't get enough water on the plants, and some dry out. Admittedly, it's hard to get enough water from my little R/O tank to water everything. Sadly, I lost one nep and a relatively common drosera, but no big deal. I had some new pitchers open that I thought I'd post.

    First up, I got some cuttings of N. burkei x villosa a while back. I gave one to spec, then my brothers dog ate my cutting. Spec was nice enough to trade back the other one for another nep. Not seeing the parent, I didn't know what it looked like, but it turned out pretty cool. It actually has some of the villosa ribs on the peristome, and an interesting pitcher shape. I'm assuming this is an upper or an intermediate based on how the cutting has grown. Here are a couple of pics:




    And here's a nice new pitcher on my N. ovata. These get almost black as they age, but this one just opened:


    Here's an interesting story. Here's a photo of the damage my plantsitter did to my N. hamata, which is recovering nicely now:



    But wait, whats that? Upon closer inspection, there's something going on in that moss. What the heck It's little N. hamatas! Several of them! Huh? They look too small and far from the plant to be basal shoots, but I guess that's what's going on. Very odd, as there are several little clusters. Here's one group:


    If I get several N. hamatas out of this, I'm going to be extremely happy.

    Ahhh, it's good to be home!!!

    The hamata shoots would be basals. You plant probably started off in the middle of the pot, and the bit to the side is all that is showing now, particularly if the moss is growing. Basals can come from the root ball as I've found from several species, in particular my previous dead rowanae which has thrown up a shoot from the middle of the root ball.

    Ouch. I lost mine to an unfortunate accident, and I now wonder if I gave up too quickly to defeat.
