An uncommonly shown species, that seems to finally actually be doing well for me

I should not be looking at your thread because it's making me want to buy more plants :oops:

So do you have N.neoguineensis? I think I remember you having had it but I'm not sure, and I'm trying to find out if it would grow in my conditions or not (essentially normal household temps, with a 10 degree dip at night). I've been thinking about it for a handful of years and maybe it's time to get one if it's still on my mind, if it would survive.

Once upon a time I had a seed-grown one (supposedly, if the seeds were correctly labeled) but it died a long time ago, with several potential reasons why that I won't try untangling. There was one for sale on ebay not long ago from someone who lives nearby, but I could not afford trying to beat that ending bid.

I won't even ask how much it ended up being considering the breath-taking prices I'm seeing on the market :-))

$68. Were I not broke I might have gone for it, as it was not a terrible price for the size of the plant, but as-is...well, I'm broke. On that note: know anyone looking for a pet snake?

Oh that's not too bad actually, but I wouldn't spend it on anything I thought I'd kill that being said. And that's why I haven't bought campanulata yet again!

Unfortunately not on the snake front. I know Ozzy on here is big into snakes but he's quite far away from you. There is a big-ish snake channel on youtube called Snake Discovery, and while I think they might be up in MN, maybe if you reached out to them they might have a good snake network for you to get in touch with?

Reptile classifieds sites and FB groups are more reliable than trying to contact a YouTube personality usually, and I've already posted across a bunch; distances also don't matter so long as someone's in the US, it's not hard shipping animals so long as the weather cooperates. It's just finding people who are willing to actually buy the animals and not ask for free handouts or ridiculous price slashes (if you can't/aren't willing to afford the animal, I don't trust you to be able to afford its necessary care), and building a good reputation (which is really hard when you're a relatively new breeder online and have all of one review thus far). I posted photos of one of the new babies in the snake thread too; they're adorable and uncommon animals but the uncommon part partly factors into difficulty in getting people to buy them since nobody knows about them.

Anyway, plant pics:
I want another flower on this thing already; I have bical pollen coming in at some point soon, and I really want to snag hamata from somewhere too

Also need to upgrade this one

So... about these grow tents. Now that I'm not somewhere tropical/sub-tropical and relegated to indoor growing I'm trying to figure out how to grow these things. Can you post some pics of your current set-up? Is it like those plastic covered metal racks with some tube lights mounted every shelf, or like a literal tent in your livingroom like some people have had on here before?

I don't photograph the grow areas because they are literally stuffed to the brim with stuff and IMO unsightly to look at overall. The main greenhouse is just a Harbor Freight plastic greenhouse in the living room, the new highland space is a grow tent I was given recently on a payment plan (because I'm broke, record repeating...sigh...). Both are set up with whatever latest LED tube fixtures I can to get it as bright as possible while keeping electrical usage/heat as low as I can (I get tubes that can be linked together where possible to drop usage further and save plugs as well).

Though this starts out pure green, I have recently noticed with age the peristome tends to bronze a fair bit

Since taking these the peristome on this plant has developed its proper scalloping and blood-red color

glabrata is loving its new conditions; pitchers are a little slow to develop but the leaves are jumping in size, red-flushed, and the tendrils are growing huge

This plant is starting to sprout aerial and basal rosettes all over the place...I was hoping the overhead lights would trigger flowers especially since it triggered a couple intermediate pitchers (and testing a probably invalid theory concerning phosphorus to try and convince it), but a vine full of pitchers is also nice
N. ampullaria "red speckle, Sajingan" SG by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
And, took a photo of this right when it arrived because I honestly have no idea if I will get this cutting to root. But fingers crossed...

I have 3 primary hamata hybrids now, but only one has decent pitchers at the moment (the other two are either too new to have any or dropped them due to an unexpectedly strong fertilizer reaction). But those pitchers are phenomenal...
N. thorelii x hamata by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Oh the teeth...I'm hoping the new mirabilis globosa x hamata and this might be a pair sex-wise so I can try a hand at making a "lowland hamata"

And I have this brilliant pitcher downstairs...dying for uppers
N. burbidgeae x platychila by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. burbidgeae x platychila by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Also now not only have pitchers on the basal of this ridiculously skinny hybrid, but the overhead lights seem to have triggered an intermediate pitcher on the main vine finally! Uppers, and maybe flowers, could be in sight soon!

Complex as the parentage is on this, I have no clue what mature lower (or upper) pitchers will look like at all. And this is one of 2 clones, the other being a bit slower to adapt to the highland tent.

And this thing finally had all its seedpods ripen! I'm really hoping the seeds are just on the small side but still viable, because that was too good a set for all of them to be chaff, especially since obvious chaff was also present. And the crosses are just too promising...

Mystery plant that's rather frustrating me at this point; I really would have liked to see what a clip x jacquelineae cross would produce, but then I saw that the cross might actually be x izumiae...and now the questionable parentage has been changed to bongso. It's gonna have odd-shaped, dark pitchers one way or another, but I need really big, mature pitchers now to tell what the other parent actually is.

And this guy is still alive...moved up to a bigger pot because the roots were sticking out the bottom. I have high hopes for an outlier oddity collection developing soon, if this one stays alive, I can get madagascariensis to root, and the vieillardii I won recently to stick around. Will just need masoalensis, distillatoria, and then to replace my poor khasiana to complete it.

On the oddball collection --
Nice, I've killed so many pervillei's I stopped even trying LOL. I really like khasi crosses so I've been trying to track just the species down for a while but it doesn't seem to be on the market really. Gave away a madagascariensis before too which I sort of regret because they killed it and I just haven't gotten around to getting a new one since.

Is that rob x maxima from a single clone or seed? It's a really nice plant and maaayyyyybe I need one too.

I know of an FB auction going on for khasi right now, and a female too...but unfortunately it's already gone way over any price range I could manage right now, so my wait continues. And I seem to have really oddly good luck at least for a while with things that are supposed to be hard to grow (all 3 perennial Byblis are growing like weeds, the pervillei lives and seems to be gaining size, the madagascariensis may actually root for me, Roridula is taking off rapidly, etc.) while I kill the weeds...
The robcantleyi x maxima has the clonal data on the photo, and it was a rooted cutting (actually several, I kept 2) I got from someone on here actually that said it's a female. As it's developing brilliantly red leaves and getting large now I'm hoping I will see proof of that somewhere in the nearer future (and perhaps cross it with the bical or spectabilis x hamata pollen I managed to snag).

Things are starting to develop so fast in the highland house that half these photos are already outdated and boring compared to the new ones... but oh well.
The 2nd biggest pitcher currently on this plant, and the 2nd darkest:

Snapped a flower stalk off this thing, dammit... but there's a chance the piece will root and maybe the stalk will stick around. We'll see. Or another one develops.

and this one, which I've now verified the nickname for, are both vying for that nickname now.
