    I'd be interested in seeing more of that N. pulchra. I grow it and its slightly smaller then yours. Do you also grow N. sumagaya ? They seem so similar I'd like to hear your thoughts on the two.
    Hi Flip_Side_the_Pint,

    I'm not very familiar with the the taxonomy of the Philippine nepenthes species and I don't grow N. sumagaya. I heard from friends who have visited N. pulchra habitat, that it's different enough but similar to N. petiolata. The difference is mainly the size of the leaves and pitchers and the bigger bulbous base.

    N. petiolata line drawing:

    Sorry I couldn't be of more help regarding N. sumagaya.

    The only other thing I know about N. sumagaya is that wistuba previously named it N. amabilis, but that name had apparently already been assigned to a hybrid involving N. ampullaria and N. rafflesiana, I recall wistuba been quite annoyed when cheeky Martin Cheek, who did precious little to discover the plant and played no real part in its description, but somehow on a technicality was able to name it whatever he wanted. It's a funny game this taxonomy business. Does anyone know where this list of "Binomial nomenclature" names exists? I'd like to be brought up to speed with any random names and descriptions that never materialised incase I ever want to name something.

    thanks for the reply.

    I grow both N. pulchra and N. sumagaya and as of right now they are very very similar looking at first glance its not until you inspect it in further detail that you can see the differences. But mine are far from mature so that likely has a lot to do with it. I don't grow N. petilolata so I can't comment on it's likeness. I'll have to pick one up so I can compare the three.

    That's a lot of developing seed you have there. Do you have plans to germinate it all?

    I used to sell/ send out seed in the past, whilst some gave great germination and people were happy, sometimes for whatever reason the seed didn't work out and people were displeased. So yes i mostly just sow all the seed now.

    Don't have an export licence at the moment, if I do manage to get one then yes I can sell a few.

    Export license? I'm guessing you don't live in the USA then. That's too bad, I'd love to get ahold of one of those jacq seedlings too.
