    Here are a couple of rafflesiana pics.

    The above is a nearly solid dark brown/purple seedling we call 'Chocolate Pot'. As it matures, the color seems to get darker.


    Here is another raff seedling. The colors have great contrast, notice the striping on the peristome.

    Here are two seedlings of the hybrid N. bical-red x northiana.


    Here is a shot of one of our red N. mirabilis echinostoma. Notice the seedling in the background is a totally different color.


    Here are two more Viking pics. No two are the same! These plants all come from rhizome divisions.


    There has been speculation that the Vikings are a natural hybrid between rafflesiana x mirabilis. We have three different plants of that cross, and all are similar to this photo of N. hookerae (Victorian hybrid of rafflesiana x mirabilis). Looks nothing like a Viking.


    Feel free to ask any questions.

    Terrififc plants and terrific photos! I guess you guys live in lowland heaven. Love the variety of color forms of some of your species. The Vikings are just great! How large are they? Do the leaves resemble more N. raff's or mirab's? Or just its own?
    Please share your media composition and watering/fertilizing regime with us!

    I have EP's red bical and its not even close to your big mama. What is the source for Big Mama?

    I can't take this. Its too much awesome lowland for one thread to handle. When you have time, could you guys dedicate a thread to N. 'viking' ? I'm going to have to get one of those [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]
