    Nepenthes the GREAT picture thread!

    My aristolochoides have taken forever to grow an inch. I must be doing something wrong. Some others have done a little better though, some pictures from this morning: Argentii Rafflesiana 99 Male ventricosa Pinguicola agnetis

    N. hamata - how long did yours take to establish itself?

    Thank you very much vraev. Actually the Rajah's took much longer before they started pitchering. It must have taken those two plants over a year to produce the first pitcher and growing nice, but now they are producing consistently so each plant has 4 or 5 small pitchers.

    N. hamata - how long did yours take to establish itself?

    I guess I would be the same Alex you are talking about. I would also have to agree with the light, but I made my greenhouse before my neighbour made his house and he built a big wall right over the greenhouse because his house sits higher on the hill. I now get full sunlight until the early...

    N. hamata - how long did yours take to establish itself?

    Mine also comes from BE and took about 6 months to start producing pitchers. It remained witout any new growth for probably half that time and then it's now trowing some basals that I have rooted. The first pitcher it made came out with missing tooth, the second and following ones came out...

    Nepenthes the GREAT picture thread!

    Unfortunately for me, every time I miss a large nice looking pitcher it's usually under the wire mesh and almost always have to cut it to free the plant.

    And some more photos

    Got the jamban from Borneo Exotics in November of last year. Last Wednesday I got a lingulata from them as well. Will get some pitcher pictures soon.

    And some more photos

    It's supposed to be either gracillima x ventricosa or ventricosa x ramispina. I only keep nep species, but was told by the friend who got two of them, that it was a really nice plant and I bought it. I just got back yesterday from easter vacation and found the plant in my greenhouse. Before...

    And some more photos

    I now experimented with a new (for me) macro flash equipment. Some photos are very good, some others I didn't get them right, this flash system I'm using has 3 separate flashes, two for macro and one for backround lighting, and output is adjusted separately, so I just haven't had enough time to...

    Nepenthes dubia/inermis

    I'm growing all of the above, but all those plants are still small and no where close to producing upper pitchers. I have them all in the coolest place in the greenhouse and they are all doing great, but not growing very fast. Have just posted pics of Dubia and Inermis, the others I had posted...

    Lots of Nep photos

    Well, Mexico can be very hot, but I live at 8,500Ft so the winter months, when the viking came it are much more in the cool side. Night temperatures are usually around the upper 30's and sometimes go as low as low 30's. Inside the greenhouse it can get somewhat warm, but not outside. Mexico...
