    Lots of new growth now really starting to show up! There are some lowlanders in here like I promised to Flip side too!


    N. northiana- finally showing signs of beauty after it got dried out and overheated to the point of almost death!


    N. macrovulgaris- a quite uncommon species to see in collections.


    N. longifolia- a wonderful red clone from Malesiana Tropicals that I got for free as a tiny TC plant about 2 inches across.


    N. gracilis var. nigrapurpurea- finally I can show it off! Usually it just has bronzy pitchers, but I guess it likes all the sun it has been getting!


    N. lowii Kinabalu form- very nice, its getting quite large and I hope to have intermediates soon! Perhaps uppers by the end of the summer!


    N. ovata and N. carunculata- a nice 2 in 1 shot of these "cousins".


    N. hamata upper- a true one, yes very much upper! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]


    N. veitchii Bareo Highland- really starting to take off after being repotted.


    N. ramispina- wonderful plant and wonderful coloration!

    whoa nice lowii, that hamata is awesome too, I hopw my lowii grows for me like that, I repotted it and it seems to be doing good, no new pitchers but several new leaves, how long should it take to get that size? It is around 3" in Diamter now with nice healthy leaves and pitchers that are large compared to the leaves, I guess around 4-5 years, Would that be correct?

    Very nice photograpy. I particularly like that N. veitchii. I don't think I've ever even heard of N. carunculata let alone seen a photo.

    Wow. That ovata is AWESOME! How long does it take for that sucker to grow? I've heard it's kinda of a slow grower, and the one I have (still only about 3" in diameter with 1/2" pitchers) seems to follow that idea....though I don't think it's as slow as lowii. The pitcher seem rather long-lived, though...is that your experience?

    Jess, maybe! lol Remember, you're more lowland oriented than I, give me some credit for that puny N. northiana! lol

    Kirk, N. lowii is a slow grower and will take some time to put on a good show for you. I would expect about the time period you suggested for a nice large plant.

    Laura, N. carunculata is synomous with N. bongso I guess...I don't see the similarities myself....

    Max, the N. lowii is really starting to "show its stuff" now. I was never really impressed with it until its gained some size. I guess that repot into the living sphagnum did it some good...plus daily overhead watering with cool water.

    David, I don't really think its terribly slow. The root mass is quite large I find, I had to repot it about 3 time so far, fills up its pots awful fast so I oversized it. Seemed to do it some good! The pitchers last an awfully long time. I'd say a few months at least as long as the plant is happy and the conditions are right.
