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
