Its time for a picture thread i guess. Mostly pics, but maybe stuff later on? Whatever stuff is.


I divided and potted some things over the weekend, mostly because I wanted to fill the trays I got, hah. I think I need to move the shelf down a couple inches.

This next set is some P. moctezumae doing some weird growth thing. The flower stalk is fused to a leaf at the base. I ended up cutting it after bloom because I was worried about it imposing on new growth.

I can't belive the red in that S. purpurea. What lights are you using?

Your collection looks great! Which D. binata form do you have in the back there?

Thanks! I am not sure on the D. binata form, I got them from [MENTION=7733]Ngantnier[/MENTION]. Perhaps he can shed some light.

Just some standard T8s from Home Depot with their cheapest 4' fixture. Ill get more details on the bulbs when I get home. I decided to go the T8 route because LED tubes are becoming cheaper with better light quality. I eventually plan to switch to those when my second set of fluorescent poop out.


I received the S. purpurea and D. muscipula as seedlings. They havent been through a dormancy yet. I plan on putting them outside this year in my 'bog' and doing dormancy next season.

I'm unsure of the form. I got the seeds from the ICPS seed bank and they were just labeled D.binata. I'm amazed at how well they are doing for you, great job! I think I sent you a D.capensis,D.spathulata,D.binata, VFT seedlings, a sarr or 2, U.praelonga and a Nep cutting? Are the VFTs and Sarrs pictured the one's you got from me? Either way they look amazing, so richly colored. I'm unsure if they are pure purpurea though, they grew from mixed open pollinated seeds from Dean Cook. So they could be a complex hybrid heavy on the purpurea.

Yes, the sarracenia and vtfs are the ones you sent. D. binata and D. spathulata as you can see are doing well, I divided the spathulata a week or two before this. D. capensis I probably gave away, I wish I would have labeled it, since I now recall this was a slim form, as opposed to my typical form. Nepenthes cutting didn't make it. It dried out upon transfer from rooting to planting. In retrospect I should have used a bag for humidity. It wasn't quite as hardy as my x ventrata, which I don't use a humidity bag for. One ping species didn't make it. The U. longifolia you sent is recovering nicely. I had it in too high light and it fried, but it likes it's new home now. You also sent some genlisea which is not doing much. I think it needs less light like U. longifolia
