Crikey!

those have got to be some of the best looking Neps I've seen in a long time.

I've been umm-ing and ahh-ing about whether to get a burbidgeae for a long time, but i think you've just tipped me over the edge - I have to get one, now.

Thanks a lot :wink:

Really beautiful neps!

N.jamban is still very nice, and it's the first time i see n.spec nova in vining state ( exclude wilds plants)

can you post a pic of your new greenhouse?

Are your sure about veitchii? It looks like a rafflesiana with a veitchi stripped perostome. Is it really a pure veitchii?!

Hi Laurent, yes the veitchii is certainly 'true' unfortunately the angle that I took the photo gives the pitcher a squat raff look, but I couldnt move the plant as it is firmly entangled. It has a new and larger pitcher developing on this you will see the true features. I have several seed clones of the candy stripe some of them lose their colour and change to the typical 'golden' appearance as they age. However this one hold the pink colour in the pitcher for much longer.

Breathtaking plants Simon :wink: .

I'm impressed and almost jealous. The striped veitchii is even prettier than i imagined.

I hope to see one of your hamata 'hairy' someday.

Thanks for sharing, Mr Lumb :( .

François.

PS: Is that N. argentii below the striped veitchii?

Finally the spec nov has been named it is called N.flava. Get out those labels out guys

Here is the upper pitcher I posted at the start of the thread. Unfortunately the days are numbered for this vine and the shears will out this weekend (you've got to be cruel to be kind)
