    Great photos, Robert. The N. northiana is stunning.

    Really appreciate your sharing of habitat photos and natural growing conditions. Your posts are an educational treat.

    Many thanks,
    KPG

    Man those are fantastic!
    I don't know if you want to swing the aquatic plants to a different spot, as those might be a Utric(I am not sure though) and some of those nuts(Fernando, Barry, Pyro) might want a peek.
    Doesn't N. northiana look like it's made for flying insects to "bank" right in? If a pitcher was six feet tall, it would be perfect for a football throwing contest!

    Hello,
    thank you for the wonderful pics, northiana is certainly very beautiful! Maybe you should take a good pic of the root and substrate area if you visit the area again...I find it quite hard to 'picture' the growth habit that these limestone plants (and campanulata) have...
    thanks again! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Swords,KPG thanks for the comment.Griffin i will post again in the proper section when i come back with more pics after the investigation. Lam, initially i was going to take photo sample of the roots and substrates but my mind was on another when the pitcher was spotted,only to realised when i reached home. Definitely am going again. Kinda good excuse my buddies will not refuse.

    Lam,again it's difficult to illustrate the roots and substrates in pics as the colour of dead leaves and shadows will be darken due to photo processing to bring out color balance.One way to solve is using black and white, or and I tried to imitate infrared process by first desaturate using photoshoppe. As we are more used to colors most will not like the results but it is best used to show,in this situation, the partially exposed roots and substrates. Try Imagine a layer of decay twigs and leaves where the plant taken root, more fine roots and the main root penetrating limestone cracks to have a firm hold beneath. Photo as follows. No doubt i will post again with a better images, but for the meantime [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]








    all images are altered to show the details-limestone surfaces,substrates
