Xmas pitchers

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

The weather outside is frightful - but at least it's mild. Good for the heating bill.

Here are a few winter pitchers:

 

N.macrophylla

Nice Veitchiis !     Is  Veithchii  ( 2)    the Candy Stripe variety ? and, if so, where did you get it from ?

Hello! Yes it is the Candy Stripe variety. If memory serves me correctly, it came from Chrisitan Klein.

Stunning plants, I'm loving that " aristo"....

I only have 1 nep due to space issues in the winter, the better half doesn't like the plants coming indoors but I fought gallantly for the downstairs lavvy window ledge.

That is now home to a healthy yet dubious looking eymae.... Whatever it actually turns out to be I'm not really bothered as it has fabulous looking pitchers.

Amazing plants and lovely photos, thanks for sharing.

Chris

Hi. Actually, I'm not sure. It was quite a large plant when I acquired it in 2014. After sulking for a while it started growing quite vigorously and now has a leaf span of 2ft.

Hello Wiser,

may I ask you where you got the N.klossii from?

Besides I´d be interested in the age of your stunning N.x trusmadiensis. I have just a very small one and would like to know how long it´ll take to reach the size of your beauty.

Hi lilacina,

The klossii is a Borneo Exotics specimen.

Difficult to answer your question about xtrusmadiensis: the plant in the picture is the product of a basal cutting I took from the parent plant about 7 years ago - but it was a big basal cutting. Some species/hybrids grow well for me - xtrusmadiensis is one of them - others don't. I wish you luck with yours!
