    A Few Nepenthes

    One draw back to having these plants is where they decide to drop there pitchers. Makes them very difficult to photograph so I apologies that some have there back to you

    My favorite is the Burbidgeae, where do they come up with these names?
    if the second names ends in -ii (N. lowii) or -ae (N. burbidgeae) its named after a botanist or some other important figure. -ii stands for a male figure and -ae stands for a female figure. other names like N. northiana dont end in -ae but is named after Mrs. North who discovered the species. other names have latin meanings. N. ventricosa comes from the word ventricose which means having a "pot belly". if it ends in -ensis (N. muluensis) it means it comes from a specific place. in the case N. muluensis, Mulu is the name of the mountain it is found on. Gunung Mulu. Muluensis literally means "from Mulu"
