    Gorgeous plants and interesting observations, Heli and Av. Paul Zahl's photo of N. villosa in the May, 1964 issue of National Geographic sparked my interest in carnivorous plants. (Yes, I'm really old!)

    Sorry to dig this up, but I'm also wondering if anyone thinks they're growing the actual Mount Tambuyukon Nepenthes villosa, or are they all turning out to be N. x kinabaluensis?

    Here's my small Tambuyukon villosa. It's very vigorous.

    Having grown plants from both locales from seed and having also micropropagated them over the years, I haven't noticed any significant difference between Nepenthes villosa which couldn't, finally, be attributed to simple seed-grown -- sexual -- variation . . .

    No elongated pitchers or ease of cultivation due to the lower altitude of the Tambuyukon plants?
