Gorgeous plants, and I love the way you photograph/filter stuff ; the photos appear a bit soft, rather than with harsh contrast and it looks great on CPs. I find that too many people photograph them as a mean of documenting/showing off, rather than taking in consideration the aesthetics.
Nepenthes ventricosa - really enjoying this one. It grows very well and is an attractive looking plant.
Not sure what this one is, but it's just opened a new pitcher and made a huge jump in leaf size.
Juvenile Heliamphora pulchella:
Not in my terrarium, but these are some Dionaea plants growing outside. The majority of them were bought about a month ago from the grocery store. I am looking forward to next summer once they're well established.
New setup: various Pinguicula on lava rock- just settling in:
Nepenthes glabrata, unsure of whether it's liking it or not:
Nepenthes hamata definitely not liking it... I'm not exactly sure what's going on. Days were quite hot this summer, a few times pushing high 80's fahrenheit in the terrarium, but always with a fairly sufficient night drop- and for only a few days at a time. I'm sure it'll bounce back this fall- unless the issue is mites or something else. ?? It seems to be trying to push out a couple new growth points, so we'll see:
And lastly this Nepenthes jacquelineae was pretty badly heat damaged during shipping... It's a lovely clone (BE 3093) and cost a few, so I'm really hoping it sends out an offshoot:
Really nice plants, and the pots are interesting. Looks like you've pierced regular pots with a soldering iron to make net pots. I have never been that interested in Utrics, but maiden sent me a few and they are growing on me.

bonfield: I've decided to finally reveal my best-kept secret for growing healthy Neps: Just spit on them every few days, the enzymes in saliva help them to better absorb the fertilizer I spray them with!
