Hello guys,

I am super excited because i finally have a plant that i have been wanting for a long time. You will see it in a minute.

It all began today when i talked my mom into going to a gardening centre(intratuin) after the dentist. After a while of strolling around i saw something familiar, nepenthes. They had 3 kinds: nepenthes 'louisa', nepenthes 'miranda' and another one with blackish pitchers(alive).
I ended up buying my long time favourite miranda and the louisa.
20 metres furthur there were some more CPs. I "saved" some of those as well.

This is what i ended up with.
Drosera aliciae

Sarracenia (some sort of psittacina)

And my two nepsImage

I have them in the greenhouse right now and i hope they will be okay.

Did you happen to get a picture of the darker pitchered plant? I'm curious what it was as I've never seen one like that in a regular store.

Also grats on the S. psittacina! It looks like it may be a pure species plant to me.

Im sory to say that i didnt take any pictures of it. I also never saw obe like that, it was greyish all the way. It kinda looked like a grey ventrata to me.

Thanks for the congrats on the psittacina, i really hope its pure species.

Heliamphorawalnut, you have all the giveaways and trading things, california carnivores and fts. So i think you are lucky as well.

I looked up nepenthes 'judith soper' and it looked like it could be the one.
