    I thought twice about posting these photos since they contain text with the word "sale" but to remove the text every time I post photos from my site would be rather time consuming. I hope the list owners and mods don't mind since I don't do retail sales to anyone on this list anyway and am not trying to advertise here. If they do mind, please let me know and I'll desist!

    These plants were raised in precisely the same environmental conditions. The first photo is a plant originating from seed from the forest regions of Gng. Bandahara:




    As you can see, the pitchers are rather small compared with the size of the leaf. The insert is an enlargement of one of the pitchers from the same plant, so you can see the teeth.

    This photo is of a plant originating from seed from the meadows (blangs) of the same mountain. It's much more compact as you can see:



    Both plants are still young and more differences may become apparent as they mature. All the plants we have seen that have been raised from seed from these two areas exhibit the same general differences in form under identical growing conditions. Rate of growth for each form is about the same.

    BTW Joachim, according to your website the plant you have is from Heiko Reischer? Perhaps he got it from Andreas. I don't have Andreas' clone here to compare. It's interesting to note that your plant grows rather slowly. I know your conditions are very good so that's rather surprising since ours grow relatively quickly. Maybe just the characterstics of that particular clone or maybe it's from a different area.

    Rob,

    I think you are probably safe, as you only sell to the retailers and not the public, much to the sorrow of many of us, lol.
    Are the pitchers roughly the same size, even though one plant is half the diameter of the other location? The larger plant has small pitchers in comparison witht he smaller plant, and calculating in my head, it seemed they would be of similar size.
    Are both locations going to be available? I like them both!
    I think my favorite pic from your retail section(again for wholesalers only) is the N. mikei.
    BTW, I received clone 99 of the giant N. rafflesiana yesterday, through Tony(thanks again to both of you). Looks great.
    I saw "O'Sheas Great Adventure" last week, where he was trying to catch local Russel's vipers for anti-venom, in Sri Lanka. I keep looking for that cameo of Rob sprinting by witha snake dangling from his nose while trying to outrun a water moniter, but it has yet to happen.

    Regards,

    Joe

    Yes Joe, both forms are available now. I would say that the pitchers on the 6" dia. plant are approximately the same overall size as those on the 3" dia. plant but not being in the highland nursery right now I can't check. The shape of the pitchers is different though. The forest form produces longer pitchers, more like the one shown in Joachim's photo and the meadow form produces squatter pitchers. I do wonder if the differences are sufficient for them to be distinct subspecies but that's one for the taxonomists to argue over. I guess it would depend on the flower structure and other factors.

    We see snakes here practically every day. I saw one yesterday swimming through an irrigation ditch whilst out running. They are usually harmless rat snakes or very occasionally cobras or small vipers. Having a Russell's viper hanging off one's nose sure would make one run faster [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] They are exceptionally dangerous but fortunately don't come from around this part of the country [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    There's a small 1.5m (4 foot) monitor lizard living in the garden and he's quite tame and curious. I hope he never gets in the nurseries and onto the benches though. When they decide to run, anythig in the way gets pushed over!

    Hey Rob,

    No worry about the pics [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    The whole sale thing really has been beaten to death and there is rarely a time when anyone feels it's necessary to even speak up about it.

    So have at the pic sharing [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Thanks Phil. I guess the subject has probably been discussed on all the other parts of this forum too.
