Wow! Your collection looks like a commercial operation haha. Sarrs are looking great. Love that newly opened rubricorpora(?) pitcher.

How many helis do you have in that GH? Cant wait to see what the ionassi x pulchella make. Helis grow so slow, at least for me. I have some minor x hetero and nutans giant in TC that are around 2, I think, and theyre still very small.

That ceph wall is ingenious. I'd like to copy that one day. Do you have a link to how you constructed it? I remember seeing you talking about it but cant remember which thread it was in. Love that table full of ceph seedlings too. Great ceph collection.

All I have to say about all of those neps is I wouldnt want to be the person in charge of trimming the old leaves and pitchers lol.

Hi Eric.
yes it is S. rubricorpora ,have a few of them and some hybrids to i think , one on my favorites

helis how many uumm a lot !! , never bother to count as the amounts change weekly it seems, with selling and trading ect . ye s the painfully slow with natural seedling , but T/c can get a good size plant out in just over 12 months now approx and depending on it specie or hybrid.

the ceph wall is going well as usual there are many different growth rates again,as you can see, , didnt do any vid on how it was done , ,have photos of it if you want , send you a email .

trimming is part of the game, trimmed many larger pitcher out than this lot before , the longest pitcher i had to trim out was about 15 or 16 inches or 40 cm long hybrid of boschiana truncata , they all have to die some time . got a TV program coming round again on 15th Nov to do a TV segment again on the G/H timed out 2 x 240 liter bis of trimming all ready and still going
