    I was thinking they went to ...."sp 8", on the old site when Ch'ien was still there-I liked it better back then.
    Anyhow, I imagine Ch'ien knows the answer to that question.


    Cheers,

    Joe

    Chi'en,

    I'd love it if my plants were nearly ready to flower, but it is a sloooow species and I doubt many of us will see any flower action for a few years yet.

    Do you know how many clones Malesiana had in cultivation?

    Thanks, Hamish

    I hope this can help to clear things up a bit:

    "Nepenthes aptera" was the forthcoming name for this taxon, but it was not yet published, nor will it be now.

    "Nepenthes alpicola" was simply a mispelling of "aptera" that somehow got started in circulation.

    I think Malesiana had about half a dozen clones being propagated in tissue culture.

    According to my (old) records, most of the unidentified species being distributed by Malesiana Tropicals from 1997 onwards have been described as follows:

    sp. #1 = N. mindanaoensis Kurata
    sp. #2 = N. hurrelliana Cheek & A. Lamb
    sp. #3 = N. mira Jebb & Cheek
    sp. #4 = N. vogelii Shuit. & de Vogel
    sp. #5 = best regarded as N. spectabilis Dans.
    sp. #6 = N. rigidifolia Akhriadi, Hernawati & Tamin
    sp. #7 = N. glandulifera C. Lee
    sp. #8 = N. platychila C. Lee

    People with any plants in their collection with "sp. #" obviously need to know the lab of origin for the plant since many nurseries have used this numbering system and they don't necessarily apply to the same varieties.

    Best regards,
    Ch'ien

    Thanks Ch'ien. This is important information. Sometimes you have to be quick in this naming game, but publication precedence is better than a free-for-all with numerous competing names as in the cultivar and pseudo-cultivar mess.

    And in addition I want to mention that it is not useful at all to spread names which are not formally described. They bring up more confusion than labelling the plants with an exact location code and a unique (!!!) number until they get a valid name.

    There is already enough confusion with wrongly labeled plants...

    Cheers Joachim

    Dustin,

    That looks like Rob Cantley's sp#1 (Sumatra).
