    I Was passing by and have the time to make a quick stroll in the "nepenthes and wild orchid garden" outside the town,and found quite a no. of species from philippines and sumatra. Surprisingly truncata,veitchii,faizaliana,ventricosa(red peristome and yellow peristome ) are doing very well with huge pitchers. But One that caught my attention but without a name tag [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img] , after searching on some website i narrow down to either sumatrana or sibuyanensis. Which do you think?

    Thanks for the response.
    Lam, this was the biggest amongst the sumatrana.It's 1" across the peristome,5" long ( from apex of peristome to pitcher's base ). So far non of it have uppers. I don't see many discussion on sumatrana.with such nice coloration it should be in every grower's wish list.

    Josh,i will try to post the neps and wild orchids from the garden,need it at least the whole sunday ( for conventional style of photography - slow ,using tripod, use of bounce flash,reflector on hand, no air/wind movement ) to produce detail,crisp sharp images
