Here's a few of the newest pitchers! Since it's summer time, I'm having to water a lot so the plants don't dry up. Might want to think about putting in a misting system soon!

Judith Finn after a few months without pitchers.

Avalon (alata x [veitchii x tiveyi]) colored up nicely

N maxima this is the biggest pitcher yet, but it's transitioning into uppers soon. :-(

N truncata is getting bigger, it's at 8.5 inches now. Turned out to have some nice red coloring, I hope it stays!

I love the shape of your maxima. It's too bad that it won't be making them like that anymore. :(

Thanks! It's my favorite plant and my fastest growing too. The vine is about three feet long now. Once it flowers I'm gonna make cuttings I can giveaway.

Ya you think its "slowly" growing... untill one day you go to fit something in there and realize you have no more room hahaha ;)

He he, you're right! Just put in another bench for some plants arriving soon! I'll have lots of pictures soon!

Also repotted the truncata so I got better pics of the newest pitcher!

Just received a bunch of plants yesterday and I'm still in the process of photographing them all. Here's one that really stood out to me... sib x (talangensis x mira) :-O

Time for an update!

N Avalon colored up nicely. Really loving the pitcher on this one.

N maxima x northiana produced a monster pitcher. The last one was maybe a third of the size. Can't tell if it's from ferts or because I knocked of the last two tendrils. :-(

Some new arrivals:

And finally I've got a (sib x ventricosa) x merrilliana!

Thanks! If I remember correctly, N. Avalon is alata x (veitchii x tiveyi). I'm bummed because I recently knocked tip of a forming leaf off. The next leaf should form fine, but I felt like such a klutz!

I did that with my N. burkei a few days ago when repotting it. You're not the only one who does stuff like that.

Neps seem ideal for most of the lower elevational areas in Hawaii. One day we need to test sarracenia. My Judith Finn just doesn't want to grow here. Have one brightly lit in greenhouse and others under shade. Wonder if it doesn't like cool nights

I get temps in the 70s to low 80s during the day and nights in the mid 60s. Seems like I can grow some lowlanders and most intermediates. Not sure about highlanders though, maybe some of the more tolerant species? My Judith Finn is a fast growing plant, but it rarely pitchers. When it does the pitchers are large and colorful. Also looks like it might flower soon. As for the sarracenia, they're very pretty, but how would I handle their dormancy? I've heard of people putting them in their fridge? ???

Anyhoo, here are a few more pictures of the new plants. Enjoy!

Like I said, I really like this sib x (talangensis x mira). Great color and shape, this is one of my favorite plants! Can't wait till it gains some size.

Another new arrival, talangensis x veitchii. It's small but cute!

And finally, everything potted up and on the new bench.
