Nice truncata x ovata. I like the rich browns in that pitcher.

Beautiful plants. Love the peristome on your N.Hurrellliana, love to see it's progression in a couple of years. What conditions do you grow your neps in your setup? They all look amazingly healthy!

Regards

Elliott

Thanks guys!

ChrisAZ: Its a custom built indoor grow-space

Minch108: My temps are intermediate/highland, I used to maintain true HL conditions (75 day, 50-55 at night) but I had some issues with some of the warmer growing species sulking. Since I moved the plants into this setup, temps top out at 78 during the day and drop to around 60 at night, seems to be a happy medium for both the true highlanders and the warmer growers. And yes, the hurrelliana should be quite the sight in a few years!

I’d love to see some pics of the enclosure. What kind of lights are you using?

Beautiful plants Mike! So much more organized that my cluster of tangled Nepenthes. I really need to get in there and chop stuff down again. How many clones of N. veitchii do you have? I like them all :-O

ChrisAZ: Here's about the best pic I can get, not great but you get the idea. Dimensions are 8' long, 6' tall and 4' deep. It's lit by a four, 4' two bulb T-5 fixtures on each shelf, the bottom only has two fixtures running at the moment since it not full. The climate control system is all outside of this room and is routed through the far wall.

adnedarn: Thanks! I'm sure its going to be a tangled mess within a year or two, I'll enjoy this stage while it lasts! As for veitchii... I have a ton. It's far and away my favorite species so it, and its hybrids, make up the bulk of my collection.

Nice! What kind of climate control are you using?

Everything looks amazing. That ephippiata looks particularly promising. Is it a seedgrown or one of the TC clones? I also like that spectabilis x veitchii. The peristome is very coarse and toothed.
