The season is winding down, and we're expecting possibly some freezes in the next few days, already, so these may be the last pics of my temperates I will have. Starting off: S. alata alata. This plant seems to get a cherry lip as the pitchers age. Daina's Delight, always a charmer. My S. leucophylla SG, a very red form apparently The S. (rubra x oreophila) x purpurea venosa burkii S. flava atropurpurea x ornata. This one has turned out almost solid atro in the aged color S. 'Judith Hindle' always has plenty of veins, but rarely do they last long enough to go purple S. rubra jonesii was hi by thrips, so it's till small, but good colors still. A new cross, possibly soon-to-be cultivar from Sunbelle and a new favorite of mine, S. 'Snake Bite' My SG psittacina, not much color, but prolific growth. Highlighting one pitcher on one clone of my Easton purpurea, this one has very little veining By contrast, clone 2 has a lot of color One good pitcher on a prolific S. rubra alabamensis Still loving the color on this S. x swaniana A S. x readii that has some intense colors. At least, I believe this to be readii, and not x bellii S. rubra gulfensis x alata Black finally got some color.... And just because, two flytraps out growing with them: a Dentate and a very large typical form. That's all for this year probably, so enjoy!
thatoneplantboi: Hey guys, I'm new to growing nepenthes, I'm getting a mini indoor greenhouse to grow them in. What kind of light should I use for them? Also, if you could provide a link to a product, it would be very much appreciated

borneo: Yes, they work superbly. But you don't need expensive lights, cheap ones work well too.

mylesg: i havent checked in here for a while, why does it seem all the CP forums have lost their once strong activity? the trade/sale section used to be so active and now its a ghost town. where is everybody hanging out these days for a strong online CP community?

vidyut: Photobucket has ruined this place and many other forum archives with years and years of photos worth referencing now blurred. Priceless information hostage to services once free, begging for adoption, arbitrarily monetized.
