    The last thing I had saved was the following. Without doubt the largest Nepenthes pitcher I have ever seen. This was truly a sight to behold!

    Charles Clarke, in his great work "Nepenthes of Borneo", writes that N. rajah pitchers reach a maximum size of 35 cm in length and 18 cm in width. I can tell you this pitcher was larger for sure! There was even a colony of mosquito larvae inside!











    Once again, I have too many photos to post them all, so if there is anything you would like to see in particular then please let me know.

    Hope you enjoyed the photos,
    Michael.

    Unfortunately no, sorry. There were a few plants of N. lowii growing near the summit trail some years ago, but they have all since died. To see N. lowii I would have to have visited Gunung Mulu National Park, but due to time constraints this was not practical.

    I had a chance to see N. xkinabaluensis as it grows above the site of the N. villosa plants, but in the end never ventured that far.

    Regarding N. xalisaputrana, I spotted this young plant growing together with the N. burbidgeae and N. rajah plants. The colouration of the pitchers (spotting) as well as leaf shape seemed a bit unusual for N. burbidgeae, but I am no expert.

    N. sibuyanensis is only found on Sibuyan in the Philippines.

    Cheers,
