    We had another volunteer day last Saturday. We had a small crew, but it was productive.

    N. x mixta with a N. khasiana and veitchii K pitcher sneaking in.

    We've had this mystery, wild collected Nepenthes for a while and have never seen a mature pitcher on it. Well, it finall made some, going straight to uppers. It's a subtle, but pretty N. alata, bringing our total alata clone count to 4.

    Amazing pics! Thanks for sharing!


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    N. burbidgeae needs cooler night time temps, as does stenophylla. Hopefully we'll get the highland house built soon. I know, that Sphagnum is incredible. I'm hoping to find a species on the other end of the color spectrum, Sphagnum fuscum, which is brown. It's really rare, unfortunately.

    Here are some photos from a new tract of land we acquired. Bill Scholl is currently holding onto it for us until we can purchase it. This is below the Chuck Hall property. You'll see why it's important in a few photos.

    The sand and gravel bed stream, with crystal clear water. SPhagnum is present along the banks.

    A strange oxbow bog that separated from the meandering stream. Very promising in terms of potential habitat for plants after we clear it out.

    And then we found a 6 foot deep ditch..... This needs to be plugged as soon as possible.

    N. smilesii has started reducing its leaf size. It's on the hotter upper shelf, which it should like. Any idea what's happening?

    Nice! Are Sarracenias present at the newest tract of land or is Meadowview planning on planting them there?

    I do have some serious qualms about the size of the Meadowview Drosera collection though, either you are not taking enough photos or it is waaay to small.
