    Hey guys so I decided that posting all my pictures in one boringly named thread didn't give the variety of my collection justice so I'm starting this thread just for my Nepenthes, Heliamphora, Brocchinia, Catopsis and Cephalotus. As of now I don't have any Cephs and I've only got two Heliamphora...
