    Heliamphora labels switched?

    Somehow I must have switched the labels on these hybrids created by Butch Tincher. At least I'm 99%certain that's the case. If you see this, Butch, please comment. This one is labeled H. sarraceniodes x folliculata This one is labeled H. sarraceniodes x parva Looking at the nectar spoons...

    Heli Experiment

    As a result of my recent move, I'm taking a shot at growing some Heliamphora in the greenhouse, instead of under lights in the basement. The basement is still an option, however. It's no secret that the problem is getting enough light in the greenhouse without "cooking" the plants. It's...

    odds and ends...

    It's been a while since I posted images. Sorry that the quality is a bit spotty... This young N. veitchii (m) looks promising: A couple of squat ones - N. ventricosa x (ventricosa x lowii) and N. spectabilis x mira Just found this and I apoligize for the background -- it was really...

    Nanodes medusae

    I'm always happy to see Nanodes medusae in bloom. I've grown this for a long time and it never fails to catch my eye. Cheers, Paul

    Heli - mess!!

    This is embarassing, but I thought it might be interesting (?) to show what resulted when I neglected some Heliamphora. Eldercare iossues have demanded a lot of time the past few years, and my plants have suffered. Proper clean up and repotting has not been given enough attention. Anyway...

    New greenhouse

    We are moving, so I've been putting up a new prefab greenhouse... It's been slow going, as I have a lot of other tasks. When there's progress, I'll post more photos. Thanks for looking and good growing, KPG

    Heliamphora sarracenioides "2sg"

    Hello all, I am growing AW's clone 2sg of H. sarracenioides, and the pitchers are showing a pretty distinct nectar spoon. Has anyone else had a similar experience? I'm supposing this is not the "pure" species. Take a look:

    Mouse tale

    I got a bit verbose here, so my apologies. Anyway, about a week ago I noticed this N.lowii had a damaged lid. I thought maybe I had broken it while watering or moving plants around. (All photos were taken today.) Yesterday I noticed similar damage on a young Nepenthes ephippiata up on a...

    Hairy hamata??

    Here's a couple of the seed raised "red hairy" N. hamata from BE. I like them a lot, but I wonder if they will ever be as hirsute as the plant in Ch'ien Lee's famous photo? This seed raised "regular" N. hamata from BE is almost as fuzzy as the above: Unopened pitcher: And just for fun...

    N. villosa pics

    Don't get too excited! I've had this nearly 3 years and it's a little over 4" across. Although it's slow grower, it's a rewarding plant to grow and observe. My conditions are not ideal, or it would probably be larger. I am afraid I'm getting near the point where it will slowly fade away...
