    Nice offer Steve ;>

    Btw folks don't get all bent out of shape. It is questionable if N. burkei is in cultivation except perhaps one plant that is coming from Australia. I would hedge my bet and say odds it they are N. burkei are extreamly miniscule.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    No problem there, I have enough stories I could win all five., The hard part would be trying to narrow down which story I would submit. Would it be the explosion I caused in Walmart? Or the time I was kicked out of a country? Maybe it was the time I stopped to help an elderly couple whose car had broke down? Could be the time I helped my Pakistani neighbor with his vcr? Perhaps it was the time I met Black Sabbath and PO'd Ozzy Osbourne? Maybe it was the time I wrecked the train? It could be the time I shot myself in the chest with a 9mm? I just can't decide which story would be my most embossing.

    I think I have proved myself on that qualification already

    Oh well I guess I'm disqualified. So unless Steve raises the requirement to about 100 plants I guess I'll have to keep all these stories to myself.

    I couldn't tell most of the stories here anyway.

    Tony is bringing up a good point here. The plants that I have labeled burkei came to me from a very reliable source. He has traveled and collected extensivly in SE Asia. HOWEVER, depending on who you use as your source for proper nomenclature, burkei = ventricosa. If you are a spliter, and buy the fact that they are two distinct species, then you should know that they are very, very simular.

    Is that how you understand it Tony? Anyway, if it is truely burkei and not ventricosa, I will have more, it roots easily.

    BTW, burkei is pronounced BUR-key-i

    Alright, Ozzy, you need to make a new thread called "Ozzy's Crazy Life" and post all of those stories. I'm very very curious now!

    Does it count if I had at one point less than 5? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    Steve-If N. burkei is a seperate species is deffinately an issue. Ch'ien posted a picture last Fall of N. burkei. It sure didn't look like N. ventricosa or if it is then it's and extreame end of the spectrum from N. ventricosa we normally see. I am deffinately not qualified to determine if they are distinct enough to split. The other problem is that many N. burkei and what has been introduced as N. burkei are nothing like the picture that Ch'ien posted and look much more like N. ventricosa. Deffinately needs to be some research and clarification. If your plants came directly from someone that travelled there then perhaps they are indeed the 'real' N. burkei.

    Here is a link to the thread with pics for you to check out.

    Thanks for the link Tony. I think at this point its safe to say that the plant I have labled as burkei could be ventricosa or burkei. I just don't knoe for sure. They look alot more intermediate to me then anything else. Anyway, Thanks for the link!
