    Hi!
    So, my housesitter did some damage to my plants this fall by underwatering. Slowly, things are returning to normal. While moving my plants into their new grow room today, I took some pics.

    First up, N. maxima x albomarginata. I've seen this referred to as N. x "curtisii" and as N. maxima var "curtisii". I dunno, I got it as a cutting of N. maxima x albomarginata:


    Next up, this N. x Ile de France pitcher has a stunted lid from the damage this fall, but made a nice pitcher anyway. This is one of my favorites, as rattler mentioned in a recent thread. I love the nectar beads on this one:


    Next, got this N. spectabilis a few months ago, and it seems happy. It's next to an N. ramispina of similar size:


    Next up, N. x Wrigleyana, a steady producer of nice pitchers:


    Next, here is N. ventricosa x aristolochioides, a really easy, fast-grower:


    And finally, N. x Mastersiana, still a small plant, but making bigger pitchers rapidly:

    Nice pictures, thanks for sharing.

    I doubt your ramispina is a real one, though.
    Looks pretty much like the ramispina x macfarlanei hybrid Ive cultivated until recently...

    Cheers,

    Stefan
    Happy Growing!

    Very nice indeed. I like that nectar as well!

    I wouldn't be so quick to call the N. ramispina a hybrid though. Can you take a picture from the front? Can you post a picture of yours Stefan? The hybrids usually have some speckles on the inside of the pitcher. Is that one from my place Max?

    Tony
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Hey Caps,

    When my macfarlenei(?) opens up it's new pitcher, I'll snap shot...It looks a lot like your ramspina, though more maroon in color.

    I really like the max/albo cross and the vent/aristo cross. Those two rule!

    Oh, in the background of the spec pic, is that truncata x ventricosa? (right hand side, pitcher is half cut off by the end of the picture)

    GREAT PLANTS. I really want them all. Tell me when you start hacking away at them for getting too large. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
    Update: Parents convinced to allow me to keep greenhouse heated over winter. Most species will not be lost. Too lazy to update growlist.
