    Very nice photos Rob - Thanks!
    Now I know what to look for in the leaf and pitcher differences when my plant starts putting on some new growth! In the images you show it appears the "hybrid" one has a slightly maxima type tendril attachment to the leaf tip whereas the first one has what looks like a straightforward attachment out of the leaf tip.

    If I remember correctly Rob, your website said there was two collections of N. jacquelineae, somewhere around 1750 m and 1850 m. Which ones have been made available both types or just one? Is there any noteworthy differences between the two different populations?

    Now, now, Tony, everyone knows my boxers are pink!

    The ugly little yellow flags are sticky traps. (I hate 'em. If one touches your hair you have an interesting hair style for about a week! ) We're located in a farming community where there are some very tiny flies that can easily pass through shadecloth. They are attracted to yellow and research has shown that 9" diameter is most attractive to them (why?! ). Since Neps are not yellow (if I can help it), they settle on the plastic squares first and find only axle grease on the menu. They don't actually attack Nepenthes but flying around the nursery and settling on plants by chance can spread fungal diseases.

    To answer your question Josh, These are from 1,850m which is the location harles Clarke went to. Specimens from another mountain at 1,750m are similar but possibly more robust, with a higher proportion of the plants having red coloration.

    By golly Rob, I'll need that other N. jacquelineae too then! Any idea of a release date for the second N. jacquelineae population?

    I'm a greedy plant collector aren't I? If I got a Nep a day I would still want more! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/alien.gif[/img]

    Ahh Josh, you'll have to be patient for that one. we didn't have many seeds of the 1,750m form in the first place and it's still in the lab being multiplied up. About spring next year would be my best guess, sorry!

    Ha! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    It's actually quite alright Steve, a desire for that next "must have" plant is probably what keeps me addicted.

    I should really focus my energies on getting bigger places to grow them (a house with some land so I can construct a greenhouse or two one LL and one HL) instead of buying more plants but new plants are cheaper/easier than trying to get a mortgage for an old farmhouse and some acreage! It really will have to happen soon though or else just turn the whole condo into a steamy grow room! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Hi Rob, Tony and everybody else!!

    It'd be nice to analyze the populations of N. jacquelinae and compare them with each other. I wonder if the presumptive N. izumiae can be propagated on its own or crossed with another one of the opposite sex to see if you still get that specific pitcher shape!!. It is a shame that where I live the collection of Nepenthes is not as broad as it is in the states!!. Otherwise, i would be competing with Josh by now!!.
