    Hello everyone! SO I have quite a few nepenthes to add here and it would be an understatement to say I'm out of room! I had to resort to hanging a few off the sides and moving the more hardy nepenthes completely out of the tank altogether! If you are curious as to what all I have in my collection I thought I should post my grow list link here as well. So without further adieu....

    The very full 40+ gallon tank.

    N. Albomarginata- The white collar is used to lure termites to a tasty treat :P

    N. Eustachya X Maxima

    N. Robcantleyi QOH X KOS just starting to open it's newest pitcher today!

    N. Sibuyanensis X Lady Pauline

    N. Viking X Ampullaria flower that had just appeared last month seems to have been self pollinated (Not 100% sure though). I asked on a forum about this single strange flower and several members agreed that this looks to be one of the few rare nepenthes that has both male and female flower parts present on the same plant! 

    N. Petiolata X Burkeii 

    N. Maxima X Platychila

    N. Ventricosa X Robcantleyi KOS also just opening up. This cross is supposed to be one of the nicer robcantleyi crosses out there so we'll see :D So far he's just tubby and green...

    N. Bellii X Robcantleyi QOH putting on his first pitcher for me.

    And to save the best of this months nepenthes for last before we start on the other carnivorous plants..... Nepenthes VOGELII! He just arrived and has already won my heart.

     

    On to the others-

    Pinguicula 'Pirouette'

    P. 'Sethos'

    P. Planifolia is a VERY red ping once mature and is also somewhat semi-aquatic. You can see I keep these two separate from the other pings in their own little glasses so I can raise the water up. I keep the water line right to the top of soil except for once a month where I raise it all the way up to the top of the glass and actually submerge most of the plant underwater. So far they are loving it! Slow growers but fairly easy if you keep the water high. 

    And last of all my little cephys :)

    Cephalotus 'typical'

     

    Thanks guys for taking a look! Remember I order all posts by date so if your interested in backtracking the collection and seeing the monthly progress just search "ashland nepenthes" and follow by date! Have a great day! :D

    Entry #2

    So I have a few new plants in the collection!

    N. Burbidgeae x Platychila

     

    N. Fusca (Mamut)-

     

    N. Aristolochioides x Maxima, N. Robcantleyi X Bellii, N. 'Gentle' and N. 'Miranda' already lost their pitchers due to the shock of being shipped and repotted :/ But I will post some pictures once they put on some new pitchers. Also as an update I lost the N. Tenteculata I had recently received on ebay. It was smaller than I thought and had some disastrous shock after mailing and being put in new conditions! I have read this is slightly common with the Tenteculatas and once the greenhouse is up I may try again with a little more caution.  In the mean time my Robcantleyi X Maxima that had not pitchered last time I posted just put on it's first pitcher for me!

     

    N. Robcantleyi X Maxima- It has the striped peristome I was so hopeful for! I would have gotten a closer picture but he is in my tightly packed tank and I didn't want to risk getting him out :P

     

    And just to show you how packed my little home setup is until the greenhouse in the garage is up I took some pictures. The bigger tank is only a 20 gallon and the smaller 10 gallons. In total 17 plants. Most of them in 6" pots. It's nepenthe Jenga....... Time for an upgrade....

    Also my N. Viking X Ampullaria is starting to put on a flower bud!!!!

    I got a few pings on e-bay too! The crumbles on the leaves are crushed fish pellets that I use to feed the nepenthes.

    P. 'Pirouette'

    P. 'Sethos'

    P. Moctezumae - That I am growing out from a leaf cutting from Matt and Leah.

    And my one and only regia seedling!

    D. Regia- Hopefully I can keep him alive. Supposedly losing them at this age is common...

    Cephalotus from work!!

    I took some small divisions and leaf cuttings right after I got him so hopefully I can get a little community going :D

    Entry #1

    So this will be the start to hopefully a fairly regular update on my CP collection that consists mostly of Nepenthes (But I do dabble in other things :P)

    This is my baby-

    Nepenthes Robcantleyi (QOH X KOS)

    P.S. that white spot in photo 2 isn't fungus its just the camera acting up :P

    Next we have N. Robcantleyi X Spathulata

    N. Truncata (E) This is a red form. Supposedly the cross between two very red truncata parents. We'll see how she colors up later.

    N. Robcantleyi (QOH) X Maxima- Not to showy at the moment but being my first blog it will be interesting to see some growth on a few of these later on.

    N. Robcantleyi (KOC) X Densiflora- Again not the showiest right now.

    N. Jacqueline X Eymae

    N. Tentaculata Gunung Raya- So he may be small but he should have DARK pitchers later.

    N. Maxima X Platychila- I'm already amazed at the "wings" on this guy!

    N. Petiolata X Burkii

    N. Ampullaria X Viking- Not usually the type of nepenthes I go for. I tend to like large and tall nepenthes not the "squatty" guys but my boyfriend (Also a botanist) begged me to get one. So I saw this one and its bright red leaf color was a winner. After I kept it in my conditions the red disappeared in all the new growth. Not the same light conditions I guess. Either way still nice! 

     

    On to the Drosera!

    D. Spathulata (Fraiser Island)- Hoping my issue is not bright enough light and not that I was jipped! He should be a nice red color.

    D. Indica

    D. Capensis "Alba"- We sell this form at work.

    D. Capensis "Typical"- We also sell this form at work.

    D. Capensis "Sunset"- Supposedly this is a selected cross from an "alba" form and the "all red". You can see that this is very similar to the alba but just a slight hint of color giving it a really nice pink glow. I gave one of these to Matt and Leah so hopefully I can convince them to TC it and put it in stock :P
