    It's been quite a while since I've done any plant photography, so decided to take a few new shots today to record progress. Since a few of them turned out halfway decently, thought I would post them for you to enjoy!

    A quick shot of N. talangensis. This is a beautiful species, but in my experience, not the easiest to grow. It seems to prefer consistently cold nights. This pitcher is about 5 cm tall.

    N. tenuis is a lovely little species, and its pitchers are very small. This one is only about 2 cm tall.

    N. villosa continues to do well, so thought I'd post some pics showing its progress. Based on my experience growing this plant over the past few years, I believe that it can truly be grown to maturity in cultivation. Someday, I'm hoping that I can get it to flower.

    Finally, a shot with my hand, for scale:

    If anyone has any questions about these plants and their cultivation, please ask. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smilie4.gif[/img]

    When your N. villosa does flower, could you cross it with a lowlander like N. truncata or maybe N. ampullaria so i could grow it here?

    Its awesome how old is it (for the new guys who just came online very recently)?
    Is it from TC or seed?
