    Hi guys,

    Thank you for all the kind words.

    It's my pleasure to share these photos with everyone, especially when it could help us to see the real habitat of these magnificient plants.

    These photos were taken at a attitude of about 1700 - 1800 meter above sea level before noon. Temperature there was between 16-18 degress celcius with constant cold breeze blowing and very saturated mist. (you can see the substrate is very wet always). Light intensity is 60% -70% shade. Probably due to the early noon. However, during my entire stay in the habitat. Very light rain were experience.

    Hope that these data are useful to everyone.

    @emilias_garden - Almost all of the pitchers there are vibrant red. Very striking indded.

    @Lam_wn - I apologised that I cannot confirm the location name of the road as I was wondering about before seeing these plants.

    @agustinfranco - About the number of functional pitchers. There were not many per species. Probably its vines were running everywhere for the older inbetween other local plants so I can't really figure out how many functional ptchers per species. But for those that I could see and were in the photo here. Those of each individual plant indeed don't carry lots of them, perhaps about 3-4 pitchers max with very healthy pitchers and vibrant coloration.

    Happy growing.

    Hi Robert,

    The population are not dense rather sparely distributed 2 - 3 meters apart each plant. And the number are not many. Yes, they do grow only within the area.

    However, I do see some smaller plants within the vincinity and on the slope where mosses grow. They are about 2 - 3 inches in leaf span.

    Happy growing.
