    Hi all, i am posting some illustrative images of the recent trip, it was a continuation of the trip made previously, but this time i'm exploring a wider area.Mirabilis,gracilis and rafflesiana are predominant in the area but with the later immensely rich. As expected are some hybrids.

    The habitats - weeds and pandanus associated with brackish stream

    lower pitchers of the following variation are not unusual but their population as compared to the their exceedingly greater no.of pollens is hard to explain.

    Nice pics [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]. You know, it would be easier just to post the pics inside the forum. If you're using photo bucket, just looks at the last link below each picture, click it, copy it, and paste it into the forum. Easy as pie [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img].
