Okay, so all the N. 'Effulgent Koto' pitchers I've seen have stripes on the peristome. However, mine hasn't made a single striped peristome pitcher. So I just figured they'll get their stripes when they get bigger. Well, they're getting pretty big and still no stripes. I have two of these...

I know at least one person asked me about these, but unfortunately I can't remember your name - sorry! I have fifteen well-rooted stem cuttings with healthy side-nodes available to ship bare-root. (Also three apical cuttings but you'll have to make a really good offer if you want one of those.)...
I thought since I have been growing some things for a little while now. It would be only proper to introduce the site, in which I spend a lot of time at, my little collection I have started.
I have just completed my build of the new room. Pics will follow shortly on the room.....Here are some...
I was just browsing around the internet earlier and came across an article detailing what may be a new form of Nepenthes edwardsiana that exhibits a much darker, even somewhat purple peristome and shorter, more orange pitcher. Field biologist Richard Astley has described it as the most amazing...

I like the three door on two tracks it makes it very easy to get all plants as you can slide the smaller end doors all the way aginst the other end door and the main center door can slide all the way to the right and...
It's been quite some time since I've done a photo update, and with a nice snowy Saturday upon me, I thought I would take a few shots. With the doldrums of winter upon my plants, pitcher production has been low, and I'm looking forward to summer coming for many reasons. I'm hoping to thin my...
My N. jacquelineae is getting some really nice size to it, and just opened this trap the other day...
Its traps turn deep red with a dark red to black peristome depending on the lighting the plant is getting, this trap will likely get very dark red over the next week or so, but is FINALLY...

After being overseas for 3 week I came home to some pleasant surprises. Since the Sarrs are all dormant Neps will have to do for now :)
The N. lowii x campanulata is finally throwing some beautiful pitchers and seems to have a very toothy peristome:
I had thought that the N. gracilis var...
I do mean Nepenthes, but if you've got a different genus with the species name N. hamata that's awesome too :p
Here's some older pics of mine because I'm away from home right now:
SG BE N. hamata pitcher when I first got it (it's finally working on pitchers again now that it's acclimated, but...
Its been a while since I've taken pictures of my plants. Most are looking a bit rough right now but there are some I thought I'd share.
I have 5 splendiana x [(veitchii x maxima) x veitchii] seedlings and am loving them even more as they mature. Each one is unique.
Here is the largest
