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
