    Been a while..catching, up, saying Hi and showing Preacher

    Hi all. Been a while for me so I thought I'd check in. I'm finally back to work. Went back last Monday. The road has been long. Cervical spine surgery last September with a looong recovery process including residual peripheral neuropathy and sensory ataxia. Which in short means I was...

    N. Lowii crosses

    I've recently become interested in N. Lowii, they seem like they would not like my climate. I'm in Ohio and the average summer high is 80-90 with a drop to the mid 70's at night. Are there any Lowii hybrids that would be happy in my climate?

    Pitcher/Flower season has begun!

    Hi all, Just reporting in from Georgia, where it appears that once again the plants in the teaching collection are breaking dormancy. Dare I say they might be the earliest pitchers and flowers yet in the northern hemisphere? Invariably, 2-3 weeks after the solstice all taxa in the collection...

    I feel sooo guilty

    I have always considered myself somewhat of a species snob. Although there are certain crosses that have, shall we say, "a certain naive charm but no real muscle", 95% of my collection are species. But I have found myself growing more and more entranced with my bellii x aristo. I think my...

    Next on Springer: "My Nepenthes is a TRANNY!"

    I've heard rumors about this happening, but I wonder if any of you have seen this occur in your own plants: gender switching. I have a BE clone of N. vogelii that flowered 14 months ago, and provided me with loads of pollen, with which I successfully made several crosses. A few days ago I was...

    Long time lurker from PA

    So I joined this forum over a year ago and never really participated much. However, I've learned alot from the great community here and am hoping to share the little knowledge I have and gain some more! I'm currently in college (Penn State) and spending the summer at my parents farm before...

    Nepenthes Pollen Needed For Female N.singalana

    I have a female N.singalana in bloom and need some pollen for her. I would prefer pollen from N.singalana but, I know this is a long shot. Will entertain all reasonable offers. Standard 50/50 split on all seeds. There are enough flowers to do several crosses if needed. Thanks !

    Nepenthes madagascariensis in flower- looking for a girl

    Hello everyone, I have a N. madagascariensis in flower and it sure looks like a boy to me so I'm looking for someone with a female something in flower... I'm not much an artist so I really can't envision what crosses will look like, so if there are multiple offers I would love people's opinions...

    Sarracenia leucophylla Hurricane Creek, AL × alabamensis (ca. 25 seeds)(JayAustin $5)

    Sarracenia leucophylla Hurricane Creek, AL × alabamensis (ca. 25 seeds) Some of last years crosses. Flowers were bagged before opening and until a few weeks after petal drop. I haven't the time, patience or space to grow hybrids in search of a few outstanding plants so I'll leave up to others...

    My Heliamphoras (Pictures heavy)

    Maiden's Heliamphoras Some of my Heliamphoras. Some of them are from seeds i produce myself, the others are from Germany, France, CZE and Canadian private growers. A seed grown heli, in normal conditions, take from 3 to 5 years to make his first flower. From my experience, hybrids push flowers...

    Nepenthes at the Orchid Show (POE in San Francisco)

    Possibly this comes close to violating prohibitions on mentioning vendors, but I'll do it anyway. If it crosses a line it should be deleted. It seems sad that people in the SF Bay Area might be unaware of a local event which is a great opportunity to buy Nepenthes--simply because it is in...

    Big, Bad D. capensis

    I'm going to use this thread to photodocument my breeding program of D. capensis. I have been working on this species for 5 years. My original goal was to mash all of the genetic diversity I could into a handful of plants, and then see what came out of it. I feel that D. capensis is a great...

    Rokko Hybrids! The Official Picture Thread

    So late last year and into early this year I gave away hundreds if not thousands of hybrid Nepenthes seeds from hybrids that I was able to make because of pollen donated from both this community and a few others. The "donated by" refers to who gave me the pollen that made the crosses possible...
