I don't often share photos, so I decided to drop some here from my new camera. N. ventricosa x spathulata N. ventricosa x northiana N. rafflesiana "Brunei Giant Red BE Clone 88" N. ampullaria 'Harlequin' N. sanguinea "orange" not looking very orange with this pitcher N. copelandii N. 'Rebecca Soper' N. alata "Pink" N. spectabilis Giant N. Miranda N. x mixta N. 'Rokko' upper N. izumiae x truncata N. ventricosa x gymnmphora And just for the heck of it, D. spatulata 'Tamlin' Hope you like!
Not anywhere near full size, actually. The raff is still only maybe 2 feet wide, the pitchers are nearly 2/3 the length of the leaves themselves. I can't wait to see what it looks like when it really takes off!
Decided to add in a couple more pics while I was in here: N. 'Rebecca Soper' N. (inermis x singalana) x mira, turning out quite a lot like inermis N. alata "Pink" getting some odd hooded lids.... on another note, after the recent new papers, would this still be alata? Another pitcher on the SoM And lastly, a couple pics of my amp Harlequin
Been a while since I added pics here, so here's a bit of a photo dump: N. 'Rokko' Exotica Comparison of 'Rebecca Soper' lower and upper, they look nothing alike: N. copelandii 'Gentle' graciliflora "Pink" And the new pitcher on N. spectabilis "Giant" ~Enjoy!
Some new pics to share: N. BE sp. 1, new pitcher And an older pitcher N. truncata Lowland SG: this guy has some good color in the pitchers Another shot of the graciliflora "pink" The newest and biggest pitcher on my clipeata x (clipeata x eymae): the plant also just started producing peltate leaves! And the newest pitcher on N. 'Gentle'
The easiest way to tell alata and graciliflora apart--and even a blind person can do it--alata especially in lower growth has hairs on the stems, bottoms of the leaves, tendrils and pitchers have an indumentum. On the other hand; graciliflora is smooth, hairless with only a bit of hair directly on the tiny pitcher buds, but it falls off before the pitchers finish growing.

These are some really bad companies, all shells of Plantron Inc., so don't order from them unless you want small and dead plants they don't want to refund:
Farmer Seed and Nursery
Four Seasons Nursery
House of Wesley
Richard Owen Nursery
How do garbage companies like these stay in business, ripping people off year
Some more pics: N. 'Miranda' lower pitcher hiding behind the light cord: this pitcher is hitting 7 1/2" already, and not quite done growing And an upper hanging in the window One of the better pitchers on my N. ventricosa "red" Love the pattern and peristome colors on N. ventricosa x gymnamphora N. 'Rokko' Exotica Newest and biggest pitcher on N. truncata Lowland SG: with those colors inside, this is going to be a great clone when it grows up And the newest pitcher on N. Viking #19 x (maxima x trusmadiensis) N. talangensis is so far an easy grower for me As is the N. clipeata x (clipeata x eymae) My personal batch of N. eustachya "red" Bukit Barisan 'Rebecca Soper' lower And the upper: interesting how the upper pitchers get patches of darker color streaked across the pitcher body Glamour shots of N. graciliflora "Pink" The N. 'Gentle' promises much when it matures As do the 2 growth points on N. copelandii: one pitcher from each point
It is actually extremely vigorous so far, it seems. Took a little bit for it to settle in, but once it did it jumped from maybe 6 inch leaves to leaves now pushing over a foot in length, and I've only had it a few months. Pitchers so far are a little slow forming, but that may change once temperatures rise.
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.

etiennecancio: perhaps we can try to revitalize the old forums? i always found them to be much more convenient than facebook groups at least hah

vidyut: hey mylesg. glad to hear that. Love this forum. Facebook can't organize knowledge like this. Will participate as much as I can.

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.
