    New Nepenthes species in cultivation - N. tenuidon

    Hello everyone,
    Exotica Plants recently introduced a new Nepenthes species into cultivation, one which is currently in the process of being described as Nepenthes tenuidon. It is a highland plant from the Philippines and seems to be closely related to N. ventricosa and N. sibuyanensis. All the plants released were from seed.
    Mine, although still just a seedling, is already a nice plant and the colours are just fantastic so far. I can't wait for this to mature. Does anyone else here have one of these? It would be great to share photos and get an idea of variation among the seedlings

    Haha I sure hope so! I've only had the plant for around 10 days, but what I can say for sure is that it seems like it hasn't skipped a beat since delivery and there's no signs of significant transplant shock. Its already put out noticeable growth

    I think I might actually have a few very small seed grown ones. The seed came to me labeled as "New Species - Philipines - Similar to ventricosa/sibuyanenesis".

    Mine is still a small plant. Here is all I got from this species;

    Nepenthes tenuidon Suarez&Ferreras, ined. LUZON: Zambales. Inultramafic substrates at ca. 1600m altitude.

    Hope this helps.

    Fascinating, any idea on what the exact mountain its found on is? It is likely that this is the plant from Mt. Mingan, if so here are some things to look forward to -

    Has the species been officially published? If not its considered bad form to make the new species name public. No harm, no foul, just wanted to make you aware. I did something similar after the ICPS conference with a new species that is in the process of being described from Australia.

    Most likely Mount Tapulao (also known as High Peak) is the tallest mountain in the Zambales Mountain range and in the province of Zambales in the Philippines. The peak, which rise to an elevation of 2,037 metres (6,683 ft).
