    Hi Everyone,
    Here are some photos Michelle shot recently.

    Here is our N. merrilliana just opening. This plant is a slow and steady grower.


    N. thorelii (red x spuat) female on the left and N. thorelii (d) purple on the right.


    A huge N. bicalcarata pitcher, summer is here.


    N. Viking - here are two different plants


    Still very young, here are three different siblings of N. veitchii (f) lowland. The seedling producing the pitcher on the left is probably one of the most colorful veitchii we have ever seen.


    ...and just because I think they're so unique and beautiful, another couple of N. Vikings.


    Hope you enjoy!

    Trent and Michelle

    Those are some nice looking jugs! I think the N. bicalcarata might be an answer to my pesky plant eating cat problem.

    Hey Trent and Michelle! Marvelous pitchers. I am speachless! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]

    N. Viking is an hybrid, right? What are the parents? Or is it a variety of rafflesiana?

    Cheers,
    Jorge Joel...

    To answer a few questions. Jess, I'm sure Michelle will head out to the greenhouse and grab a few snaps of the raffs.
    TyFone, Michelle grabbed that pic and I don't know exactly which plant its on, but I know it's not our large female bical, "Big Mama" because she's in upper trap mode now, with a bunch of ground shoots producing tangerine sized traps. The plant I think that's in the photo has leaves about three feet long.
    Dustin, the lowland veitchii were greenhouse bred by Geoff Mansell and they are absolutely stunning and vigorous. That one plant consistently produces those pink traps with orange peristomes. Others will be multicolored with no two traps the same color!
    We are also noticing that the Vikings get better as they are getting established, and may take the better part of a year to show their best pitchers. Michelle and I are pretty much convinced they are not a natural hybrid, but either 1. a new species, 2. a subspecies of mirabilis, 3. a subspecies of Thai thorelii-which is not really thorelii but supposedly smilesii (anamensis).
