    I have heard of it, I guess it's just not too common, also there has been some mix up of plants between it and fusca. That's a really great picture of one though.

    It's in cultivation, for a while now.

    The true N. faizaliana originates from Malesiana Tropicals which is the only source up to May 2007, supplying true N. faizaliana.

    All other big dealers sell a form of N. fusca mislabelled as N. faizaliana.

    Ch'ien Lee identified this plant as N. fusca from Sarawak.

    Pyro had posted links to photos of Nepenthes fusca pitchers but it looks like the links are broken.

    Basically if the hoods are long and narrow and triangular it is a N. fusca. If they are rounded or orbicular then it may be Nepenthes faizaliana. Part of the confusion is that when young N. fusca "Sarawak" looks similar to N. failzaliana with rounded lids.

    Note: My plant is definitely N. fusca.

    Here's an old image of my N. faizaliana -- MT clone:

    Man Nan, you seem to always find my old psts and make me work to get them back in order LOL

    Here are the pics of N. fusca "Sarawak" that was mistakenly ID'd (by Charles LOL) as faizaliana. This is ABG's plant, one of the first "Sarawak" in the country.

    there is still no way thats just a variant of N. fusca. GOtta be a species.

    But yes, faizaliana hasnt been truly in cultivation (at least not widespread) for a while. Good luck getting your hands on one.
