    Microscope Nepenthes

    So in my Plant Anatomy lab I got bored and decided to section a dark Maxima, here are the images that I took some don't have great resolution but I thought it was cool. Section of the peristome with some interesting shaped cells with a wax layer. A section of the outside of the pitcher, TONS...

    Fun Nepenthes Collage

    I just thought someone on here might enjoy this little art project I just finished. It is a 'miranda' pitcher that I took thin tissue samples from and put under the microscope. I then sorted out each different sample picture (ie. Peristome, lid, pitcher wall etc) and inserted them into the...

    N. 'Gentle' coloration

    So the other day I was shopping online for a few plants and a TC farm in Florida that I was buying from had a nep. called 'Gentle'. Only $5 for it so I said why not! The small plant they sent has only one tiny damaged pitcher that gives me very little indication of what it will look like. In...

    Sundry photos from my grow room

    I am by no means a talented photographer, possessing neither the skills nor the equipment. However, fellow cp grower mcmcnair dropped by recently and kindly took a few photos of my plants. So I thought I'd share our joint handiwork here. First we'll start off with some greener pitchers and then...

    Flowering (Male) Spathulata x spectabilis looking for a lady friend ;)

    It's just opening up so I suspect I have a bit of time, although I've never dealt with a flower before so I'm not sure exactly how this game is played. Holla if you'd like to make a hybrid. It's a really awesome looking plant with a gorgeous striped peristome. Super colorful!

    Thermoelectric Cooler

    I am getting one of these, the kind you see in grocery stores by the checkout with soda inside, and would like to know if 54 degree low is OK. I spent the winter moving my high elevation Neps into an aquarium in an unheated room and now with warmer temps want to do the same only have the damp...

    Nepenthes spathulata x hamata

    This has turned out to be one of the easiest, fastest growing and most beautiful Neps I have had so far. I have mine parked next to a similar sized hamata and favor neither over the other. The pitcher body is beautifully marked and the peristome is close to the hamata. The plant I have is still...

    Periflare - The Peristome Flaring Device

    So I've had this idea for quite a while and have been thinking about how to do it. I notice that many Nepenthes peristomes folder over onto the back and you only see it completely flared out while it is opening. I'd like to always be able to see that for taking pictures or just viewing. I know...

    Hcarlton's Nep Pics

    Not often that I post pics on the forums, so I thought I'd add in a few things: Everyone's probably seen my N. rafflesiana in the POTM thread, so I'll start with N. ampullaria 'Harlequin' Followed by N. spectabilis "giant" And an 8 1/2" pitcher from N. 'Miranda'. I know it doesn't measure up...

    Reddish N. campy for trade with U. campby or extreme clone of D. multifida 'Extrema'

    I have two cuttings of a shapely reddish clone of N. campanulata, for trade with U. campbelliana or extreme clone of D. multifida 'Extrema'. A small quantity of U. campbelliana will do, as long as the propagation material is viable and healthy. As for the D. multifida 'Extrema', I'm looking only...

    Cephalotus

    For some time I have been watching an eBay seller offering Ceph's that apparently lost the ID tags and might be one of the giant varieties. He might be right because the one I bought from his website as a typical variety is a fairly small plant and producing some pitchers approaching 1.5". I...

    Elegant pitchers...

    Thought I'd drop by and share a photo or two of some beautiful pitchers to y'all. Yes, we all want a toothy peristome nep. Yes, we'd like a candy striped peristome too. Or maybe, a wine shaped pitcher with astonishing colouration. But, I sometimes find simplicity to be the most beautiful trait...
