Great photos!
I also have a northiana (a very small one) and it's my favorite lowlander.
Keep it up.

Terrific-looking plants!  Tne N. glabrata uppers look great and the N. northiana peristome is gorgeous.

Thanks for sharing...

Hi guys thanks! The N. northiana really surprized me. I overheated the poor thing and it wilted to almost nothing..now look at it, best of all it was a freebie!

N. glabrata is a breeze, it probably the best plant in the greenhouse in regards to vine development, right behind it are N. maxima, inermis, hamata and ovata.

Yes Agustin I also agree with you. I'm a big fan of glabrata because of its simple yet sophisticated color. I've also rooted acutting of it I think, its upper to so this should be interesting if it did take.

I LOVE GLABRATA!....*ding* hey i just thought of somthing(no not my signature thing) there might be a better benifet from slow growing species. wouldnt it make since that a slow grower will take longer for pitchers to deminish? eh just a thought

I'm diggin that N. eymae, how large is it (the plant)? Any signs of vining/uppers? I reduced mine to cuttings but it still hadn't made any moves towards creating those inermis-on-steroids type of uppers.

Thanks guys,

Josh, the plant is almost a foot across. Its not where's near ready to vine yet lol, I'd suspect that this plant for some reason has to be quite tall to vine and make those legendary uppers we all love and cherish. I've never seen a photo of how big a wild plant really is so I can't guestimate how big it has to be. N. inermis for me was an easy plant to make the upper pitcher...I saw lowers for about half a year and then its just pure uppers now lol.
