Hello,
just sharing some nep pics taken this month
starting from small to big

N.northiana. A BE clone. After seeing Hongrui, Cindy and Firefly's northianas, I feel embarassed posting this pic

N.rokko 'exotica' making lots of basals (although they cant really be seen in the pic). Recently I have been more courageous in my pruning, and though its painful for a while, the eventual growth makes it worthwhile!

xtiveyi, a dainty upper (they are actually supposed to be large and heavy, when grown properly :hitmyself:/> )

Recent acquisition: raff x veitchii

N. raff. An interesting intermediate pitcher

N. alata-giant x truncata - Nice pitcher:leaf ratio!

I like the x Tiveyi, what are the parents? The raff x veitchii is beautiful too.

Ah, hopefully the rokko cutting I got from you can grow to become as beautiful as yours!

your raff x veitchii is fantastic! but how come your xtiveyi showing its backside? :D/>

here's a nep that u sold me some time back..very nondescript color & shape wise but til now i marvel at it's amazing pitcher to leaf ratio..& the fact that such a small plant can bear 5 big pitchers at once..if only my other hookers were so hardworking! :lol:/>

n. xhookeriana 'green'
http://pic60.picturetrail.com/VOL1663/11385102/20170626/332806314.jpg
http://pic60.picturetrail.com/VOL1663/11385102/20170626/332806261.jpg

another common one, YG xhookeriana, but i find the color very nice. finally mummy plant started pitchering after a basal bonanza...
http://pic60.picturetrail.com/VOL1663/11385102/20170626/327474814.jpg

all-time fav..
http://pic60.picturetrail.com/VOL1663/11385102/20170626/331544667.jpg

& the albo everyone's sooo crazy about..n. albomarginata 'black' aka 'kuching spotted' (???? :blink:/> )i got this direct from YG some while back..

yup, YG is a nursery in cameron. if u bought plants locally with the words 'YG quality plants' on it, it's from YG.

Noobplant, so mine is black or spotted? YG ppl also dunno as i bought from 'xiao mei mei' there. just told me it's albo. some of its pitchers are darker than others, almost black, whilst some light green-grey..

Hi Neverend,
Tiveyi is a cross of veitchii x maxima, or the reverse...I cant really remember! :unsure:/>
Angel, glad to see the plant is doing well under your care! And weren't you complaining of a lack of colour in your red amps?
thanks

Usually when people say 'kuching spotted' they refer to those where the pitcher doesnt turn so dark or blackish so u see more of gren background with blackish spots. The YG clone also has the black spots just that its darker background sort of hides them. This type of albo also originate from Sarawak as I understand so maybe thats where it adds to the confusion when people say kuching.

I did notice that the largest pitcher on the YG albo black is 'small' relative to my Penang reds.

Phoenix7's albomarginata pitcher from YG looks exactly like a "Kuching spotted". Just curious, how many members here actually still grow the "Kuching spotted" from MT? :blink:/>

thanks, Lam...it was good stock to begin with. ^_^/> i was complaining about lack of color in my other brunei red...this one (BE's gardentech batch) has always been performing very well. the other one (unknown source, prob orginate in malaysia somewhere) doesn't color up til the pitcher is open for some time, & the color is not as deep as the BE one.

yup, my YG one also has black spots, they're actually quite obvious on some of the pitchers.
