Mass, it's my good old burnt earth + peat moss mix with a little charcoal for aeration. The burnt is is what most of you refer to as burnt clay that contains almost no nutrients.

Computer's down for a while, so I had to upload with my laptop which has no photo editing software...

Massive photo upload this time :)

001-16.jpg

N. ampullaria 'Tri-coloured'

020-5.jpg

019-5.jpg

N. ampullaria 'Red'

009-17.jpg

007-15.jpg

N. sibuyanensis...

004-20.jpg

And a related hybrid, N. x (sibuyanensis x merrilliana)

005-17.jpg

N. northiana from BE just popped

006-16.jpg

N. gracilis 'squat'

003-20.jpg

I love the pattern of N. alata 'Surigao' lid.

016-8.jpg

013-13.jpg

030-2.jpg

I now finally realised that my lowii x campanulata is most probably in the intermediate pitcher stage, hence the blood red interior famous from N. lowii's intermediate/upper pitchers.

021-7.jpg

N. truncata x veitchii H/L striped

026-2.jpg

A lovely N. thorelii x truncata

024-4.jpg

Common one, but very attractive IMO.

029-2.jpg

N. sumatrana looking EMO...

035.jpg

The teeth of N. rafflesiana is a trademark...

037.jpg

N. x Dyeriana looking photogenic :-D

040.jpg

N. x Coccinea

A plethora of VFT jaws.

A forest of D. indica.

A hairy S. leucophylla.

A flashy S. leucophylla hood.

I apologise for the grainy images, I only realised my camera's ISO settings were too high after taking most of the pics! Thanks for viewing!

Great pics! The sib x merrilliana is a favorite of mine. It's gonna have some humongous pitchers someday. And that shot of the thorelii x truncata is beautiful. No wonder it's your avatar!

Wonderful pictures!! Looks like your N. alata 'Surigao' has two buggy onlookers right below the lid lmao. Does anyone else see them?

Lance, haha, good to know that you noticed that! I was wondering how many people were going to assume those two ants are part of the peristome stripes :)

FYI, I was lucky to find out that the particular seedbatch for this mirabilis var globosa is the only one with prominent wings among others from the seller. :-D

If I could grow it or even get my hands on one, you bet I would! For the moment, I'm contented it's named after my name :banana2:

You can actually grow N. edwardsiana as an intermediate and it does perfectly fine. Your N. veitchii x fusca has quite the peristome.

It's been a long time and I've been fairly inactive in many forums save for a few facebook groups. Exams took the priority and I'm halfway sitting for them right now. Having spent less time with my plants meant that they've begun to take over what precious little space I have and get messy. Plus, I have to worry about caterpillars now. Oh well...:censor:

Hope you guys enjoy this update. :-D

Good ol' Dyeriana peristome.

DSC_1064.jpg

Best buddy sumatrana.

DSC_1065.jpg

The ever changing N. sibuyanensis x merrilliana (sometimes sulks for months then throws out a pitcher like this that makes my heart skip a few beats).

DSC_1066.jpg

Interesting hybrid created by a guy in Indonesia, N. mirabilis x (thorelii x trusmadiensis). Easy grower in lowland.

DSC_0326.jpg

Venerable ventricosa taking the brunt of full tropical sunlight like a boss.

N.jpg

One of my crown jewels in my collection, N. veitchii 'Bario'

And, I entered this photograph into a local photo magazine competition with hopes to win. Thought the naturally occurring position of these two pitchers was very nice. N. x Ventrata.
