    Shan Siva's Borneo Adventure 2011

    You guys don't know him as he's not a CPer but my pal and Battle Helm Magazine's UK writer/reviewer Shan Siva went to Malaysian Borneo for xmas/new years holiday and took a few pics of Nepenthes for me while he was there. He's given me permission to share them with you guys. Some plants are wild and some are cultivated maybe at a visitors center or something.

    So without further ado here's some images from his trip I thought you guys might like....

    Edwardsiana


    N. alba? N. gracillima? N. muluensis? He did climb mulu...


    I'm stabbing in the dark and guessing N. faizaliana?


    N. mirabilis or N. gracillis upper?


    N. veitchii


    N. burbidgeae




    Hope you liked his pics - wish I could have gone with, maybe next time...



    Maybe not!


    If any of you have better IDs on the ? marked ones I'll pass them along to him.

    Awesome pics! I'd say that the alleged N. faizaliana is probably just a classic N. maxima. I could be wrong though. The "alba, or muluensis" certainly is beautiful though I don't see much muluensis in it? maybe a hybrid?
    LOOKING FOR: N. (argentii x bicalcarata) x {[(lingulata x edwardsiana) x (naga x hamata)] x [(klossii x undulatifolia) x (aristolochioides x rajah)]} Growlist: http://www.terraforums.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=124586

    I just took a stab at IDing them, he says they all pretty much look alike to him... I went to my storage bin tonight and got my Nepenthes of Borneo book, I haven't looked at it in a number of years, I forget what all grows there... For shame I know!

    Wow nice!! And about the muluensis... I think it might actually be eustachya because of the red stripes down the front (that's the only nep I know of that has those red stripes down the front) but I don't know the location where it's supposed to be found so I might be utterly wrong

    The pale upper pitchers looks like N. macfarlanei, and the one below could be lowers of that species. BUT, that would mean that those two pics were taken on the Malaysian Peninsula.

    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com
