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
