    I think I may now know where Malesiana's "Pink" clone of N.veitchii originated. A few of those plants are the spitting image of it.

    I had the same thought Johnny, but if I remember correctly their "Pink" clone came from somewhere else in Borneo. I think it was Rob Cantley who told me that, but I'm not sure. Also because Stewart McPherson was the first CP person to collect seeds from there if I remember correctly. Also, it's fairly well established that even seedlings from this locality show the climbing/walking trait even at a young age and i've seen a very mature Malesiana "Pink" form and it was very much not climbing or walking. But there will be plenty of the climbing N. veitchii available for people in the US in the future. Specifically this one:

    Good to know. Did you get to do any exploring in Australia while you were there ?

    It was my impression that this climbing trait was not unheard of in veitchii - many plants of veitchii (and other species like robcantleyi) can behave this way. Sam Estes has photos of veitchii at his nursery that look remarkably similar to some of the photos you've posted, Mason. Of course, that doesn't make your photos and the stellar specimen in the pics any less remarkable - it's a spectacular Nepenthes! Thanks for sharing these wonderful photos.

    Nice photos, but I don't see anything from the ICPS Conference. Perhaps we should rename this thread and you can post pictures from the Conference in another thread. I'm adding a DUW (Dialup Warning) to the thread title as it took 10-15 minutes for all the photos to cache on my system even with a fast connection

    I'm getting there NaN, patience friends patience Also, pretty much no one has dial up anymore and even from a slow connection loading these photos only took about 3 minutes from a computer with a 2mbps connection.

    People still use dial-up? Might be time to upgrade that along with your beeper.


    Very cool photos, Mason. I particular like the "moss ball" you captured with the Nepenthes seedling growing out of it. Also tried to identify that Vireya on the first page, but no luck.

    So its been a bit since I updated this. I figured I should at least finish out my trip in Borneo. So here are the last of my photos from my Bornean excursion. After the Maliau Basin we went to two different preserves for Orangutans and then Proboscis Monkeys but non of those photos really turned out the way I wanted so I'm skipping those for now. After that we flew to Mulu National Park where I attempted to climb the Pinnacles and Gunung Mulu and I was not able to make it to the plants unfortunately due to illness, so I never got to see N. faizaliana, N. muluensis, N. lowii, or N. tentaculata on those mountains.
