    Hi
    Here are a few more nep photos as they look on a nice sunny spring day. Funny to think the greenhouse was covered in snow a week ago!




    My large dark coloured N. sanguinea




    An infamous finger shot to give idea of scale




    A freshly opening pitcher on my orange form N. sanguinea




    Another shot of the same plant



    My N. sanguinea x truncata which is becoming more beautiful by the minute




    N. mira getting bigger by the minute!




    The whole plant. Check out that extra long tendril on the right hand side! Glad I moved it to a hanging basket




    Another favorite my N. spectabilis x ventricosa




    My very young N. burbidgeae x edwardsiana. I lost my two other plants of this hybrid, so I am keeping my fingers crossed on this one.




    And finally the always popular N. hamata. A recently opened yet to darken pitcher.


    cheers

    Nice growing, great pics!

    How long did it take to get the sanguinea x truncata to that size?

    Really neat Neps pic, fly-catchers.
    Love the Sanguinea and Hamata (of course).

    That dark clone of N. sanguinea is superb! Where did you happen to come across?

    Thanks
    The pitcher is 6 inches tall. The plant as a whole was 3 inches across when I got it in late 2003. The next couple of leaves are at least twice the size of the one that produced this pitcher
    The dark form is a BE clone.

    cheers
