    Here are some photos of Nepenthes jamban, a newly described highland species from Indonesia. Discovered by Ch'ien Lee, this amazing species is in cultivation now. So far it seems to be a vigorous and easy grower and also a prolific producer of pitchers, which is good news for everyone!

    Appropriately, 'jamban' is the Indonesian word for 'toilet'

    More and better photos are available on Ch'ien's website www.wildborneo.com.my

    PLEASE NOTE - these photos are copyrighted. Please contact either Ch'ien or myself if you wish to reproduce them.

    Cool!! Loks kind of like a cross between inermis and jaqu.

    The shape reminds me of the old fashion round sinks. What does it's main prey seem to be?
