Hello, sorry for posting in English; here are photos I took today.

This N. thorelii x (spectabilis x northiana) just opened; looks interesting so far, we'll see when it gets bigger. Did anyone get one of these from EP this year?


I think this is my female clone of N. thorelii x truncata; I have 2 different ones:


Here's a dramatic example of the difference between lower and upper pitchers on the same plant:

Nepenthes (stenophylla x lowii) x (xRokko x veitchii):

current upper:


previous lower:


even so, the current upper pitcher is very tough and fuzy, although the photo doesn't show this.

N. ventricosa x TM, showing in the morning lighting:


A couple species:

N. eymae:


I like the coloration on the upper peristome.

N. glabrata and friend:

But what means "TM"??? Me little newb don't know that, but I am often reading this...

Isn't it a photo-forum thread?

TM = trusmadiensis.

trusmadiensis = macrophylla x lowii.

N. ventricosa x TM =

Nepenthes ventricosa x (macrophylla x lowii).

Astonishing. Your plants are fantastic. How did you convince them to grow pitchers that big?

I envy you. You have such beautiful plants.

Thanks for showing us your plants...

Wow the maxima x veitchii is beautiful, and the ventricosa x macrovulgaris looks very interesting. Any tips for such huge pitchers?

But my favourite ist the "Cola-Pitcher";-)

Thank for such much pictures from verry nice plants and pitchers. But say me please: What a pitcher is that red one with wihte signs, who looks like "Coa Cola"? :shock: :-D

Where are your plants living? Outside in the garden ore in a greenhouse? Where are you from?

Hallo, Vielen Dank für die netten Komplimente!

My plants grow outside in a greenhouse. They have full sun, and very high humidity. The water is from a RO system. There is no shade or shade cloth. I am in California.

Thanks for showing off your amazing zoo, Ludwig. I'm convinced everyone can grow huge plants like this - all you have to do is lift the lids off your terrariums and then wait a few years.

By the way, there is a category for photos http://forum.carnivoren.org/board.php?id=20&.

Maybe the kind moderators would move this thread over there, to uphold law and order?
