    Hi,

    it came up in the N. argentii thread of Tamlin, but doesn't fit there well. Small Nepenthes seedlings do look virtually identical and so it is often impossible to judge the species before they get a decent size. To prove this I took three pics of smaller plants I do grow and you are allowed to guess, what species it is.

    This one although just looking typical, I do think the experts will guess (A):

    This one is still in unguessable size, but you are allowed to impress me (B):

    And last but not least this is a plant I really don't know what it is, so good guesses are very welcome. This plant has a diameter of about 4cm and what can't be seen well on the picture ist colouration of the tendril, which is similar to the pitcher colour ©:

    Hi Joachim
    My guess for the first (A) is N.rajah And (B) N.hamata. But probably got them hopelessly wrong![img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] My excuse is that my young versions of thoses plants looked like your photos.

    The third I am really not sure [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    cheers

    Hi,

    thanks for the good guesses! Thes species are:

    A: N. rajah

    B: N. bellii

    C: propably N. lowii - I bought this one as N. villosa, but the TC-lab of the seller had made an error and they were not able to tell ant more what they delivered. But also for a N. lowii this plant is horrible slow. It is by new 1.5 years aut of TC and still that small. If anyone has an idea what it may be, I would be glad to hear from you.

    Hi Joachim,

    [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] Oooh No. 3 is interesting! I don't think that's N. lowii, too hairy by far in MHO. It's definitely highland of course. Hmm, was the seed collected on or around Mt. Murud in Sarawak by any chance? Looks a lot like N. hurrellii to me. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Joachim,

    Oh Boy, Oh Boy - if it turns out to be N. hurrellii I will be very jealous of you. But on the good note I will have someone to ask all those cultivation questions of whenever I get my hands on one. Good Luck,

    Cheers,
