Is ready to take this hobby to a whole new level
I like to post some pics of my plants whenever new stuff shows up, or something is looking particularly spectacular. I am also trying to procrastinate studying for an exam. I recently had some seeds germinate, and ordered a new guy, and took a cutting, so I thought I'd throw some pics up. I also want to thank anybody who sent me seeds for stuff. I'm so happy I finally got something to germinate!

We'll start off with the least impressive. I'm more or less mistreating this one because I picked it up at Lowe's, and am currently unable to find actual pots anywhere at this time of year. I'm pretty sure it's a N. x Judith Hindle, judging by leaf shape.

These are some germinated N. Splendina x (Rokko x Stenophylla) seeds, next to a dime. :boogie: The one next to the dime actually has its first proto-pitcher, its just real tiny. There are two pots of these.

This guy is pretty lonely. N. Ventricosa x Hot lips x Ventricosa Yellow. Another one germinated in the pot, but showed no leaves, and has since just sat there.

Now for some more spectacular stuff.
A new N. Stenophylla I received a couple of weeks ago. I can't wait for its mature pitchers.

Here are three of my favorite... N. Fusca 'Sarawak', N. x Lady Pauline, and N. Burbidgeae. This is the Burbs first pitcher for me. I'll update once it opens and colors up. Also, that Lady pauline pitcher just opened over the weekend. Best coloration on one yet for me, and huge peristome.

Close up of the Pauline. Note the underside of the lid.

And the whole setup, just out of habit. I'm trying advocate North-facing window growth :jester:
