Very nice Clue, how long have you been growing it by now? And what's the plant you have growing with it in that pot?
very cool! N. clipeata is one of if not my favorite LL. I just love how it seems to try and hide its pitchers with its leaves like that. Its like its shy or something.

Here's a worthwhile documentary made by Stew recently about Gunung Kelam and N. clipeata; this is an amazing insight into the species' ecology for those unfamiliar with it. I was surprised to see the level of forest on top of the mountain, as I've only seen pictures Ch'ien Lee shot of exposed colonies in full sun. Probably just a dream, but I really want to climb Kelam one day.
I was in London attending the ICPS when this video was presented by Steward. He introduced then the project Ark of life, very good project imo, and encouraged the growers of clipeata to register or get in contact with the Ark of life in order to increase the population ex-situ of N. clipeata with the different lineages in private collections.
I was also in London for the ICPS conference, a great video and project.
Any truth that the clone U is female?
Thanks for the reply, that is a beautiful plant!
