Drew Martinez's Huge Nepenthes Collection


Recommended Posts

I went over to visit my friend Drew Martinez with another fellow CP enthusiast, Rob Co, and we were blown away by Drew's nepenthes collection! When I visited Drew's collection last year, and it was pretty amazing, but I have to say hats off for what it looks like right now! Thanks Drew for letting us check out your collection!

His nepenthes collection is like a library of species and hybrids all thriving in his overly packed greenhouse-enjoy the photos:

Ohmygaw! Ohmygaw! This SERIOUSLY made me wonder why I shifted my focus from Nepenthes to Sarracenia!

Those plants look really, really fine! Kind of reminds me of my friend's collection in Taiwan before that typhoon came and ... well, go figure shok.gif

Yeah, those plants were really healthy, and had a ton of pitchers! I'm not too sure how old that aristolochioides is, but I do know it recently flowered.
