    Oops, I forgot. It's been a long tour [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] . Are there any other species you haven't posted?

    Nope, that's all eleven of them. I saw a few other species in the Singapore Botanic Gardens, but that's another story.

    Amazing! I loved every bit of that! The yellow N. villosa was breathtaking! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]

    When the clouds decended on the mountain it made it difficult to take decent photos - see final N. tentaculata photo. Also, the rain obviously didn't help. Otherwise the weather was quite pleasant.

    As for the Nepenthes from the Singapore Botanic Gardens, they only had a few plants and nothing too spectacular.

    Here's a N. ramispina from the SBG:




    N. macfarlanei x sanguinea ?

    I just remembered: there was also a small "Nepenthes Garden" near the city of Kuching in Sarawak. They had Nepenthes from different localities, not just Borneo. Off the top of my head I can remember N. truncata, N. rafflesiana, N. ampullaria, N. hirsuta, N. bicalcarata, N. veitchii, N. longifolia.

    I guess after seeing all those spectacular plants in the wild, the cultivated examples paled in comparison.

    Here you go:


    N. bicalcarata


    Ditto.


    N. rafflesiana upper pitcher. Very different in colouration compared to those from Sarawak (see page 1).


    N. ampullaria - red form.


    Large lower pitcher of N. rafflesiana.


    N. truncata.


    N. hirsuta. Note hairs on tendril and compare to wild plants (pg. 1).


    N. veitchii


    Ditto.
