    N. veitchii 'Bau' - photo log of how a pitcher develops

    8 October
    I discovered this pitcher trying to look like a skinny Orang Utan.


    15 October
    It had since developed a slight hunchback and belly.


    16 October
    The pitcher is starting to open.




    The hair (or fur)!!!




    16 October
    Photos during night.








    17 October




    20 October
    The peristome was at its best.






    22 October (today)
    The peritsome is starting to fold back.






    The pitcher is actually more pink and flesh-tone in reality. I only managed to get the correct colour when I take a close-up.

    I agree. Very nice! I can see a lot of similarities between this Bau form and the Bareo form; they seem to have very similar pitcher-development rates as well.

    By the way, I really like the way that fern adds as a backdrop to the pics - especially the October 20th pics!

    Very beautiful! Awesome! By the way I have an amp and an albomarginata that are also labled "Bau" . Is that a region/locality or some other type of discription? Just curious.

    Phenomenal. I adore the stark contrast in colors between the pitcher body and the peristome.

    Bau is a region in Sarawak, within Kuching itself. A lot of gold mining used to take place there.
