Took some nice photos of the latest pitcher on my nepenthes mirabilis var globosa x hamata and thought to share them here. This plant is still juvenile and has just started producing slightly bigger pitchers. The adult pitchers should be really stunning if these are anything to go by.
The ribbed peristomes come from the nepenthes hamata parent. Nepenthes hamata will not grow in my climate (hot) as it requires low temperatures at night, so I am quite excited to imagine that its signature trait may still be present in a plant that grows here.
The peristome gets really dark brown as the pitcher matures. Very hamata. I forgot to take pictures. I’ll add them here soon. Waiting for a bigger pitcher.
Most of the nepenthes plants I have are small, under 3 years old. Nepenthes can grow really, really slowly till they hit a certain critical size. Here is an almost comprehensive list of all the nepenthes I am growing. Apart from these, I have several other seeds sown, but not yet germinated and some unidentified plants.
I’ll be adding photos here as well as creating more individual descriptive pages as I get time.
Here are the species from the nepenthes genus that I am currently growing:
Nepenthes mirabilis green
Nepenthes mirabilis red
Seedlings of nepenthes nepenthes mirabilis var echinostoma, nepenthes maxima, nepenthes ampullaria red, nepenthes veitchii, nepenthes maxima – giant wavy, nepenthes rafflesiana, nepenthes rafflesiana var alata
