I love the 'King Tiger' x mirabilis 'Kuraburi' and globosa x kuchingensis (it's very globose, different with mine.). BtW, whats is the meaning of 'Kuraburi'? I haven't heard that name before. Sounds like Japanese word. ;D

Thanks guys! I haven't been able to get back into this post for a few days but the problem seems to be fixed now.
Yumcatz - Kuraburi is the name of a town on the West coast of Thailand...however we know that the name was used incorrectly in an effort to confuse collectors! Thanks to Marcello's new publications we now have 'real' names for these plants but I think it will take a while before they 'catch on' over here. That was my favorite out of all the kuchinensis x viking seedlings! (So far!)
Djulzer - a lot of the 'Tiger' hybrids have amazing red coloration to both the pitchers and the leaves - but there are also loads of pure green plants as well! That's a big part of the fun with seed-grown neps!
The hanging baskets were an attempt to find a new look besides the black plastic pots or the heavy orange clay pots I usually used. I also really like them. I think they will last a lot longer than the alternative open-weave plastic ones I have tried in the past.
