    got a couple of good pics here to share.
    Let's see..
    I have two different predators. they have very different peristomes. You can see how closely this guy resembles the hamata in the comparison pic.[img]http://home.**********.com/users/rlhirst/new%20neps/predator-lowland2.jpg[/img][img]http://home.**********.com/users/rlhirst/new%20neps/predator-lowland.jpg[/img]

    This is a picture I posted earlier, wodering about it's identity. Well now I'm sure it's a hybrid. Should be interesting to see how it turns out!

    Here is a picture of the hybrid on the left, and the very nice, and very definately macrophylla on the right. They don't look anything alike.[img]http://home.**********.com/users/rlhirst/new%20neps/trus&mac.jpg[/img]

    And a couple more of this guy I got from Tony. I'm very happy with this guy. He should grow up to be quit impressive, along the lines of Jeff Shafer's very nice plant.

    Hope ya like 'em
    That's all for now.

    OH OH very nice!

    How big is the plant/pitcher on that second N. Predator? This is the first one I have seen so far showing that much flare.

    Tony
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Thanks Tony,
    I'm gonna say it's about seven and a half inches tall.

    here's another angle.

    Wow..............I wish I woulda bought N. x Predator now, but it was way to expensive for my taste.

    BTW< nice N. x Trusmadiensis you have along with the N. macrophylla.

    Wow Robin, those are great! It's kind of cool that the Predators are not clones, so they're all a little different. I have two plants as well, and they are also different from eachother, but not as disparate as yours are. Mine look more like your larger one, though one is a bit greener. I don't have that big a flare yet on the peristome, but I have hopes for the developing pitcher. Mine also have more of the hamata hairs on the lids.

    Dustin, the way these seem to grow, they should come down in cost before long!

    Awesome looking neps man! What kind of moss do you use? It looks just as healthy as your neps! Also, do have a picture of your whole terrarium? I'd like to see your entire set up.
    Just remember that you are special... Just like everybody else.
