    It just so happens my Nepenthes and cp collection as a whole probably surpasses most botanical gardens in this country. Let's see....at last count I think I have 18 different forms of ampularia, 27 burbidgeae (from seed), 30 rajah, etc, etc. So yeah...I am a Nep fanatic. I just don't feel topics about automobiles should be discussed in a forum reserved for Nepenthes ONLY. The General Discussion Forum is a fine place to talk about this particular topic.

    Now that isn't too much to ask is it?

    well no philcula, not too much to ask, but general disscusion is too too broad. i just was curious too see if there were people out there that enjoy hobbies such as nepenthes AND cars! cant this get any better guys/galys? also i wanted to know how people deal with the fact that you have to choose car parts or new and rare nepenthes such as hariy hamata.

    if you, philcula, can move this topic to a specific place then do so or ask someone to. im only a member and i cant really do much but not to post something like this in the future, hope that helps

    I never post pictures or grow lists of my plants. The only way people see them is by private invitation to the nursery and even then...cameras are not allowed. So sorry. In case you're wondering where I obtained so many clones, I have a very good friend who lives in Hiroshima, Japan. When he visits, around 8 times per year for business in the Silicon Valley, he emails me weeks in advance and asks if I am looking for anything.

    Even when you consider the conversion rates...

    100,000 Singapore Dollars = $59,038.8 US Dollars

    That is still a lot for a Camry that can be bought here for 10k. I'm afraid to ask what gas prices must be like there.

    No sweat. I wasn't insulted or miffed by anything you said.

    The majority of my burbidgeae are seed grown with some definite color forms. I have the red/pink form and to be perfectly honest with you..I prefer the more typical white/cream. The pitcher on my clone of red/pink becomes very dark red/purple in bright light and the definition of the stripe pattern almost disappears, and the lid gets super dark red on the inside.

    I have another clone that has sort of a golden green pitcher with purple splotches and a green, red and purple striped peristome. It's not my best plant but I love the tubby nature of it. Many of the seed grown specimens vary more in pitcher shape than they do in color. My preferences are the tubby, wide mouthed forms that are creamy white with pink spots and bright candy cane peristomes. Like sculpted porcelain.
