    One of my Nepenthes sp. viking plants produced a nice new pitcher recently, so I thought I might post a few pics of it, especially since it is still an undescribed species/form/hybrid.

    I took photos during different stages of the pitcher's development...


    Small bud (please disregard messy surroundings)...


    ...inflating...


    ...opened!

    I have also included a few (old) images of my N. sibuyanensis and N. spathulata:





    Hope you like 'em,
    Nep_grower.

    Very nice! That viking has a strikingly rafflesiana like peristome, eh?

    Viking is such a nice plant. I wish I could afford one. So far the closest thing to viking I have is rowanae..

    Hi Nep_grower,
    I really like that pitcher! It looks like rafflesiana all right. I love the "meat" color! I may have to make room for that one.
    Thanks for sharing,
    Robin

    Thanks for all your comments. =)

    N. sp. viking does indeed share many traits with N. rafflesiana, but that's one of the reasons I like it so much!

    Here's a photo of an older pitcher showing the peristome in considerable detail:

    Hi Chesara,

    The plant was about 20 cm in diameter and the pitcher about 10 cm high.

    Thanks,
    Nep_grower.

    how hard was it to get that viking? I notice the substrate you're using is mostly peat looking? is that what they generally grow in?
