    OK, I went overboard taking pictures today. Things are growing nicely, so I went a bit crazy.

    First, the elusive lower pitcher of N. x Rokko (they make uppers quickly.)


    Next, is N. x Manny Herrera, which is a serious vining plant but one that pitchers like crazy:


    Here's a whole-plant picture of N. ramispina, which for me has been an easy, trouble-free grower:


    Here's a fun one. I won a cutting at the BACPS raffle a year or two ago and it was labeled N. burkei x villosa. Subsequent pitchering has shown it's most likely N. lowii x ventricosa:


    Here's N. ventricosa x aristolochioides:


    Ny N. hamata is experiencing rapid growth. This latest pitcher is the biggest pitcher so far by 50%, and the new leaf is at least that much bigger than this one.


    I have 2 N. x Predators. This one, for some reason, divided into two growing points. It seems they both are growing equally well, and it makes for a lot of pitchers even if they're a bit smaller than my other one:


    Here's N. truncata x aristolochioides, which should make monster pitchers eventually, judging by the leaf/pitcher size.


    Speaking of aristo hybrids, ever since I cut the vine on my N. thorelli x aristo, it's made huge lower pitchers (blurry pic):


    All of them are grown in a room in my home's lower level. I don't use enclosures or humidifiers, and rely on the cool, humid San Francisco air for temp and humidity control. Hope you enjoy!

    your N. ramispina is awe-inspiring! aswell as every other plant you have ever grown!

    that should qualify you for sainthood, i'm sure of it.

    I like the ramspina, it reminds me of something from the nightmare before christmas. Can't beat a black pitcher.
    the N. truncata x aristolochioides looks pretty cool too. I like the hump in the back.
    Looks like a lot of hamata in that predator too. Very nice
    And hamata just growing out in the open.... Looks agressive!
    Very nice Sir!
    Thankyou.

    LOL Tony, you're right, I'd be envious of *any* space between pots - I even have small pots sitting on the edges of, or on top of, larger pots!

    What kind of temp drop at night do you get to sustain such a nice hamata. I've been considering one. Nice plants!
    It's like walking out a door and discovering it's a window.
