    nepenthes in the tabloids

    A usually taboid-y website had an article about new species of Papua New Guinea today, and it featured a pic of Nepenthes bokorensis!

    beautiful Nepenthes! Looks like the photographer arranged them pitchers to make it look like they were all connected to some central plant.

    Agreed Larry, what a totally staged picture. That's great though! I love it when they get some mainstream press.

    Reminds me of when a NYC paper ran an article on N. attenboroughii. They quoted someone in the article saying we should put them in the subway to take care of the rat problem. I lol'ed! The best was all the comments that showed up on websites running similar aticles about rat eating plants for a little while.
