    I hate to play Devil's Advocate here, but even if this is the plant that was named N. burkei, does it look different enough from N. ventricosa to be a different species? To me, N. mirabilis "echinostoma" looks more different from conventional N. mirabilis types than N. burkei looks compared to N. ventricosa. N. sibuyanensis looks different enough to me, and they are considered similar species.
    The plant pictured is very attaractive, regardless.

    I do agree, as I indicated before, that this plant looks a lot
    like ventricosa to me. However, I am not a taxonomist!

    In any case, it is good to see that this posting has generated
    a bit of controversy, for that was my intent.

    Kudos to you for your selfless approach on the subject.
    Again, as with the clipeata topic, these kind of threads are very interesting, and it's cool to see people from all over the world pool knowledge. I think Rob has plans to eventually go to the site and see if he can locate it. By that time, you may have a giant, healthy plant.
    I think there will be a decision on this subject eventually.

    Regards,

    Joe

    Is Nep. burkei easy to grow, like a ventricosa?

    Tony,

    I notice you have two clones on your site. Have you grown any of them larger than that, and can you make a comparison of neps plant with the clones you have?

    Regards,

    Joe

    Just finished snapping some photos.

    The clone from Exotica Plants. The pitchers were lacking all color when I got the plant. Now after producing several in my greenhouse they are showing some color. I have not done any cutting of this clone to see if I can get lower pitchers to form.


    The two clones I have from Borneo Exotics:
    clone Bu-1 (sorry a tad dark). These are good size plants about 15cm across but not mature.


    clone Bu-2 this is from a plant a 5cm larger than the previous picture.
    The color will darken up on this one yet as it's fairly newly opened. But I wanted to get a shot of the largest pitcher the plant had.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    My understanding is that one of the determining factors is whether or not the lid will cover the pitcher opening if you press it down on a mature pitcher. This seems to be the case for these plants, while is typically not the case for N. ventricosa.

    Yes they seem to be very easy to grow like N. ventricosa. They seem to not have the tendancy to stop pitchering for a while like N. ventricosa does for me.
    Tony

    Edit:
    I wanted to add that the plant I got from Exotica was apparently the top of the vine since it was growing apically and not a cutting with a side shoot developed from a lateral bud.

    Tony,

    Do you think the Borneo Exotic plants are the same as the Exotica one? Do you sell the Exotica one, or is that your only specimen?
    I might e-mail Geoff Mansell and see if he is going to have more in the near future, just for the interested parties.

    Regards,

    Joe
