Just a few shots from my modest collection. Sorry for the poor photo quality, my photography skills are not what someone would describe as "up to par".

D. scorpioides gemmae sprouting - many thanks, jonnyq!

I'm pretty sure it's pure, but I could be wrong about that as well. I'm positive that it's not an alata, the peristome has teeth that alata doesn't have and does very well in highland conditions that would have slowed down lowland/intermediate N. alata. The internodes also seem shorter than what is standard for ventrata. It was given to me as a ventricosa, so that's what I'll call it for now.

I haven't updated this in a while, thought it would be nice to post some more pics:

Huge mound of ventricosa basal shoots - I'm hoping to turn this guy into a nepenthes bush.

talangensis x robcantleyi - I love the distortion effect of the condensation
IMAG03451_zps0fems5ee.jpg

IMAG03441_zpsafudm3q1.jpg


capensis quite happy among the pond slime.
IMAG03431_zpsxghsvddy.jpg


Absolute monster leaf jump on the spathulata x platychila - I now have a newfound fondness for french roast coffee

Ventricosa hanging out.
IMAG03401_zps9gyftgls.jpg


A very colorful and tubby complex hybrid - (ventricosa x sibuyanensis) x mira
IMAG03411_zpsrxblmwdd.jpg


burkei x hamata - I can't wait to see the teeth on this guy once he gets larger!
IMAG03391_zpsjbaqnfsw.jpg


fusca flared peristome finally decided to throw out a new pitcher. It seems to have perked up now that the days are warming up a bit.

D. burkeana germinated on peat/sand

D. burkeana germinated on sphagnum

singalana x aristolochioides - the newest pitcher hasn't colored up yet
IMAG03361_zpsn72czb8f.jpg


boschiana x glandulifera - more colorful than the glandulifera x boschiana from Malesiana Tropicals, in my opinion

Never heard of D burkeana until I read your post. Googled it and I have to say I love how the adult plant looks! Eager to see how your seedlings grow up. Will have to keep an eye out for one of those beauties.

spathulata x platychila newest pitcher:

boschiana x glandulifera nectar globules - I guess this plant takes after the glandulifera more than I thought!

IMAG03871_zpsrxkxaz8z.jpg


The sarracenia are now in full bloom.

Yogurt cups make wonderful little pots!

I had very humble beginnings as a horticulturist. I started with sundews in yogurt cups because they were the perfect size to fit on a windowsill. Then all the windowsills filled up. And it appears that now the plants have me surrounded. Funny how that goes.

But every time I eat yogurt, I'm reminded of how thrilling all those early days were. How exciting it was to grow new plants and learn about them.

N. talangensis x robcantleyi. Appears to be a steady but somewhat slow grower.
IMAG04391_zpsomduayyq.jpg


Spathulata x glabrata. Grows faster than my ventricosa.
IMAG04401_zpson55ojpy.jpg

IMAG04411_zpsceuft0lz.jpg


Drooling boschiana x glandulifera.

Forest of ventricosa pitchers.

N. burkei x hamata looking quite toothy for its age.

N. singalana x aristolochioides has finally darkened up.

N. spathulata x platychila is taking over my terrarium.

Rare talangensis x robcantleyi shot. I'm almost never home to see a pitcher open.
IMAG03021_zpsar2twhvo.jpg


Ventricosa being red.
IMAG02971_zpsjqvehy1m.jpg


White puffball of doom.
IMAG04571_zpsffisfr4q.jpg


Weird purple thing I found in my yard. I hear that it's edible.

A few new developments!

N. spathulata x platychila - I'm really fond of the newest pitcher!
IMAG05081_zpstp7jtv6f.jpg

IMAG0534_zpscd7uwbvc.jpg


S. rubra arrived today. Many thanks, RyanG!
IMAG05581_zpskusr2bbm.jpg


D. burkeana starting to show some adult traits. I've noticed that the seedlings started on Sphagnum grow twice as fast as their siblings on peat/sand. This confuses me somewhat, as this plant is apparently grows in waterlogged peat, not in Sphagnum mats...
IMAG05571_zpshq6tcs6o.jpg


S. (rubra x psittacina) x leucophylla. This plant reminds me quite a bit of S. x umlauftiana with a more pronounced hood, probably because it lacks the purpurea genes.
IMAG05561_zps20jjxigp.jpg


IMAG05551_zps4j4de2jt.jpg


IMAG05541_zpsmo5nmzpq.jpg


My forest of capensis looking a bit depressed, probably since we just had a thunderstorm pass by.
IMAG05531_zpsqcu2xnyc.jpg


S. jonesii germinations!
IMAG05522_zpsuwdi5adj.jpg


U. subulata. This stupid thing keeps trying to invade the rest of my plants. I've placed it in solitary confinement for now.
IMAG05481_zpsjcmxk3bz.jpg


D. capensis restarted from the scraps of my main plant that got mauled by a squirrel in April. You can see the old stem in the second cell down on the right.
IMAG05512_zpsswiis4he.jpg


D. binata var. dichotoma 'Giant'. I'll be selecting 3 plants from this mess for my giveaway!
IMAG05501_zps3i1ww7gp.jpg


D. scorpioides. Not much to say.
IMAG05492_zpsf6hmj3bx.jpg


Drosera sprouts! I received these as a mess of flower stalks from Tanukimo last week. (Thanks!) Apparently there's D. capensis, nidiformis, venusta, and burmannii in the mix. I'll have lots of fun sorting these out...???
IMAG05471_zpsywewb8ov.jpg

IMAG05461_zpsinppkz3z.jpg


N. spathulata x platychila all colored up.
IMAG05451_zps8qj8a2hk.jpg


N. spathulata x glabrata peristome looking oddly red. Strange, usually the peristome stays greenish and the pitcher turns red...
IMAG05441_zpspssvh5ze.jpg


Nice leaf jump on the N. burkei x hamata. Bring on the coffee!
IMAG05431_zpsz0nyh9ll.jpg


A tantalizing glimpse at the fluid concealed within.
IMAG05421_zpsbdomxu9l.jpg


N. boschiana x glandulifera, colorful and sticky like usual.
IMAG05401_zpsw8wzwlaz.jpg


N. (ventricosa x sibuyanensis) x mira. I love the tubby red pitchers.
IMAG05391_zpsm6xy9bim.jpg


N. singalana x aristolochioides through the condensation. The pitchers stay a weird olive green color before darkening up.
IMAG05381_zps9kt2ne3p.jpg


N. spathulata x glabrata newly open. I wish the peristome would stay like that all the time, kind of like N. platychila.
IMAG05371_zpszqkaxiun.jpg


IMAG05351_zpsbybekox8.jpg


My Sarracenia aren't going hungry tonight, hehehe.

Great shots! Thanks for sharing them with us. It looks like you have capensis madness. Great looking rubras from Ryan as well & I also received mine today. :-D

Quick updates from the outdoors collection:

S. jonesii putting out their first pitchers. I've got two seedling trays filled with these guys!

D. dichotoma 'Giant' putting out a flower stalk. Weird, I only got the plant this year...Hopefully I'll have seeds to give away soon!
IMAG10321_zpszdx0bgdj.jpg


D. burkeana all grown up! I sowed these guys in April. Quick little buggers.
IMAG10331_zpsakjtcfp5.jpg


A bit of bird poo managed to land directly on two of them. I'm going to scrape it off later. There are NO trees in the vicinity, I'm not even going to ask how it got there...
IMAG10341_zpshtbmnmqf.jpg


Flower stalk! Don't know if these guys are self-fertile or not, so I'll wait for its brethren before doing anything.
