    Question sympatric nepenthes setup.

    I learned a new word today.. sympatric
    symĚpatĚric (sm-ptrk)
    adj. Ecology
    Occupying the same or overlapping geographic areas without interbreeding. Used of populations of closely related species.
    I want to do a fancy nepenthes setup for my private collection and include a whole bunch of nepenthes that grow with each other along with other species of non carnivorous plants that are also found there, for example a plant found growing with N. sibuyanensis that is non carnivorous is the fern Dipteris conjugata. I'm using wikipedia as my reference but I know that borneo is a real nepenthes zone but anyway I googled sympatric and I found a link to wikipedia on N. tenuis.
    "In its natural habitat, the species is sympatric with N. adnata and grows in close proximity to N. albomarginata, N. ampullaria, N. eustachya, N. gracilis, N. longifolia, and N. reinwardtiana."
    close proximity I'd settle for that, If I were to use N. tenuis then those would be all the plants in the tank and I would try to replicate the natural habitat of the plant making it look like wherever the plant grows in the wild. something like this but with all the pots and everything way less obvious,and not just random species of plants that don't grow with each other in the wild.

    I know that to an untrained eye hardly anybody would realize the complexity of the setup I would like to do, but for a real plant lover they would be excited.

    Does anybody else know of another nepenthes species that is sympatric with many other neps?

    Yay, another word into my mind dictionary! Also, I like your idea, but I can't see any pots in the pic.

    gracilis, rafflesiana, bical, ampullaria, mirabilis, northiana all grow near eachother.... i cant really comment on HL neps though. unless you mean like neps growing on Mt. Kinabalu....rajah, villosa, edwardsiana, lowii, burbidgeae, tentaculata. or a broader area like Borneo... rajah, villosa, edwardsiana, lowii, burbidgeae, tentaculata, muluensis, macrophylla, veitchii, steophylla/fallax. or Sumatra with aristolochiodes, inermis, dubia, izumiae, flava, jacquelineae and several others.
