Hi Folks, Here's a pic of my latest creation... https://photos.app.goo.gl/HXh26PPVbIHoYSLQ2 I had languishing Nepenthes 'Bloody Mary', which was dark green, and growing, but small and not producing pitchers. And I spotted a nice little N. x hookeriana at a local garden centre for £7. I also had a 6-inch section of tree fern hanging around. So I snapped up the x hookeriana, and hatched a plan. I split the tree fern section in 2 with an axe, and manipulated the top edge of one piece to plant both these Nepentheses on it with some live sphagnum. I then sat it on top of the other piece, and sat the whole creation on top of a bed of charcoal with a bit of sphagnum in between, in a nice glazed saucer (~8 It gets late morning to midday sun. We shall see what happens..... (The stacks of side-mounted weird-looking leaves are Platycerium bifurcatum. The trailing plant at top-right is Ceropegia sandersonii. The shooting plant at the bottom is a crazy cultivar of Euphorbia pulcherrima with gold-flecked red bracts - I will not be able to make it flower again!)
