Hey all, I was just browsing when I came across the Nepenthes thread on N. x cantleyi, named after one of our own forum members. I've noticed several other threads on new species, new colonies, etc. in the wild, but I haven't come up with a general idea of how people came upon this unusual hobby. My guess is that you're professionals of one sort or another.
Anyways, I always thought it would be a kick to do that kind of stuff (I used to badly want to be an orchid hunter) and I'm interested to know what brought people to plant hunting.
