    There is always hubbub about a new 'species' (viking is not yet listed as such), even though it may look like a long discovered one (e.g. N. rowanae). Personally I like the shape, nature (pitcher switching etc) and mysteries surrounding it. It only grows on one island in Thailand. Don't know it Nong is TCing them yet, but I know rizhome cutting seems to be a pretty good method for these ones. Some ppl also like to collect tubby Neps.

    Someone's just informed me that the red peristome mirabilis may be a rowanae.

    "Viking" has been formally described and named, so it is a new species - depending on which taxonomists one agrees with, of course. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]
    Great photos Jason, thanks for sharing!

    Ah really? Weird, then why do they still say 'hybrid' on the CITIES papers. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]

    Hello! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    As far as i have been said, N. Viking is in the last details of process to be scientificly described and formally named. Its name is Nepenthes globosa.

    Besides of the strange changes of its beautiful form and its strange changes of color, what i really like about this plant is its History, the mistery related with this plant origins and location and its survivance from the tsunami. You know the story behing that plant [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Anyways, if you want to have a good and, as much as posible, complete or semi-complete collection of Nep's, the arriving of a new species into the market is so tempting to let it pass by [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Hi!
    This is why its called N.Viking:

    I doubt the name viking will ever go out of use...ppl don't like to change. I don't think the taxonomist system permits the use of 'viking' as a scientific name?

    Yeah, esp. in Thailand (many fishermen) [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] one would definetely recall the shape of a 'viking'.

    I knew the Vikings made it as far as North America, but didn't know they made it all the way to Thailand. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    I believe the name originated with Nong's friend who was among the first to start seriously growing them, and created the grading system-Klom, Paan, Long Necks. In Nong's interview, this gentleman mentions how the shape reminded him of Viking ships.
    It will be given a scientific name very soon...it have been published already. I'm sure the Viking term will remain in use in horticutural circles. We would like to see select cultivars of Vikings be given cultivar names, like 'Viking Glory' or 'Viking Royale' and so on.
