    N. burbidgeae

    In the fall, three of us got together & ordered some SG plants from a nursery. All three of us got SG N. burbidgeae (& I added a N. fusca & N. veitchii). Since I coordinated the order, the plants were shipped to me. While the plants were healthy, they were less than perfect. After evaluating the plants, I kept the weakest & sent the others to their new owners. My plant had one decent pitcher (& another older one) & it was on a small, deformed leaf. Thankfully, the plant has responded well to a repot with new media and it's first new pitcher since arriving finally opened last week. I included an overhead pic of the plant to show the new leaves vs the older ones. The white arrow shows the deformed leaf with a pitcher & new leaves since arrival are at 4 & 10 o'clock.



    Before posting, I did a quick search and the 1st N. burbidgeae was Jeremiah's way back in June. I know some are probably in threads up in the discussion section - but I cannot imagine why this species isn't more popular.
    All the best,
    Ron

    I heard those came in looking rough, looking great now though. I like it much better than my BE clone. I'll be getting one of these sg ones in April when my edwardsiana ships out.

    My BE clone, not as nice as the SG ones, but I'm proud of it anyway, and I love the thing
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    I know who you ordered from! Very good choice. I want to get one from him, too. Yours looks really nice! Much better than the TCed ones.

    Agreed, Ron, it is a really beautiful species and its odd that it isn't seen more often. I recently acquired two seed-grown plants myself, but probably not the same source.

    Glad to see yours is doing well, Ron. With the cooler nights, the plant I received opened the first pitcher in my care last month:


    N. burbidgeae Tambuyukon sg

    I have yet to repot mine, as it seems to be growing more or less steadily. However, I am curious to see what he uses as a mix.

    Each of our plants seem really unique and quite different from the other burbidgeaes in cultivation. Heli suggested they were from Mt. Tambuyukon, which would explain the variation from the norm. I don't know that I've been happier with the appearance of any of my plants more so than this one. Thanks again for coordinating everything.
