    Mike the washed-out in photos is due to heat/water vapourised from your palm onto the camera lens or keeping camera near our body protecting against rain,while exposing the camera during photo taking vapour condensed on the camera and lens. The first photo show washed-out more serious at the centre ,disappeared towards the corner esp on top left which show normal exposure.You're not breathing on the lens,ain't u?[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] ...Robert

    Hi Robert,
    I guess that solves the 'mystery' then! I'm still learning. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    I'll post the requested photos later today.

    Michael.

    great pics! Thanks for sharing!
    Any edwardsiana
    The only place I am aware of where one would possibly be able to see a mature plant of N. edwardsiana is the Mountain Garden in Kinabalu National Park (Clarke, 2001). When I was there the plant was not on display and presumably being kept in the nurseries, which are off-limits to visitors.

    Mike, you're right it was off limit to visitors 'cos some invisible hands took some very rare and expensive orchids from the nursery in Kinabalu park. I saw the edwardsiana in my last visit near the nursery fence but as i dont have a longer lens ,strong wind,gloomy and cold i didnt try taking any photos. In Mesilau the park keeper had collected an edwardsiana plant from a location which is 8 hrs walk(one way),once the planting is successful he will plant more for all visitors to see.My visit that was 5 months ago...

    Unfortunately it was not on display when I was there (about 3 weeks ago) otherwise I would have taken some photos!

    I'm interested in what size the plant and pitchers were? Also, what colour were the pitchers, was it the red, orange or yellow form? Look forward to your reply.

    Thanks,
    Michael.
