    Did anyone read today's Lifestyle? It carried an article about the various nature trails in Singapore, and the types of flora and fauna one can find alson them.

    I was particularly interested in the Lower Pierce trail, which the author said was a place where one could see pitcher plants growing in the wild.

    Anyone interested in taking a walk there next week, and does anyone know of any other nature trails/reserves where nepenthes are readily observable in their natural setting?

    Yes, the neps are in the SBG Cool house. I meant Neps in the wild in Singapore.

    I remember my Bio teacher recalling she had seen some, no not some, tons of pitchers plants covering the ground around...I can't seem to recall it now, but I think it was at the Butkit Timah area (not the nature reserve). I'll ask her again. They were the kind you get at redhill market, I think (those were potted in groundsoil when I got them - looks suspiciouly like field collecting!?!

    BTW, anyone recently been to redhill? Anything new...uhm I wanted to ask this for a long time now; are there cps in Carrefour? I think someone mention something to that effect but I can't remember if it was carrefour or not... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    Seen them at lower pierce. But you've got to look really hard 'cos they are vines and are all over the place. I've seen 7-inch rafflesiana pitchers along the path before but they are no longer there. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]

    Ampullaria pitchers are often buried under the leaf litter.

    Well, I took a walk down the Lower Pierce Trail last week, just to see what the fuss was about. Sure enough, I managed to see some pitcher plants in the wild.

    You can take a look at my photos here.
