I figured I'd start a photo thread.
First up, Nepenthes tobaica x (sanguinea x khasiana)


Nepenthes reinwardtiana green
When I first got this plant it wasn't vining and was only a few inches tall. It has gone on to vine for me during this winter, and produce all of it's pitchers in highlands conditions. Interestingly, only one pitcher has eye spots.












Nepenthes sanguinea - orange
I rescued this plant from a walgreens store, it was on the cosmetic aisle, half dead, and crammed onto the very bottom shelf. I've had this plant over 6 years.



Nepenthes graciliflora, formerly Nepenthes alata "Boschiana Mimic"




Drosera aliciae from seed

Nice plants! Your N. reinwardtiana is fantastic, and I love the color on that N. tobaica hybrid. What are your growing conditions?

I grow my plants on a card table. For lighting I have a six tube T5 fixture by Sunleaves. There are switches on the back of the fixture so I can have two bulbs on, four bulbs on, or all six on. I grow my plants with only four bulbs on and their foliage is plenty red. My temperatures vary wildly. The plants aren't in any sort of terrarium, and the place I'm at has little insulation. A few days in the winter I woke up and could see my breath inside my house. The past month temperatures in my house have probably been around 70-75F days with 55-60F nights.

Well time to update this old thread instead of creating a new one. I'm really excited about this u common hybrid between two common species.
N. sanguinea x ventricosa
