    Unhappy

    Are there some Sumatran Nep experts out there? This was grown from seed collected in Sumatra, supposedly from Gng Angasan in the N.W. of the island (which is home to several species of Nepenthes). I can't make my mind up what it is. Any ideas anyone? The pitcher is about 8cm or 3" tall. This isn't a competition by the way, I'm genuinely puzzled [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    It kind of looks like some form of N. bongso/carunculata/ovata (all very similar). I'm not real sure. This might require some research [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] .

    Could it be a new species Rob? I love it whatever it is! If I had a reasonable guess I'd say a form of ovata myself....really can't guess! Maybe Jeff, Tony, or Andreas could help out.

    Thanks everyone for the suggestions. Sigh... I really don't know what it is. The seed definitely originated in Sumatra, that's all I can be sure of. I thought of N. ovata too, but it doesn't have the characteristic appendage on the underside of the lid. It might be a bit too immature for that though. Guess we'll just have to wait and see. I've sent the photo to Charles Clarke and will let you know if he has any ideas.

    Hey what's this? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/alien.gif[/img] That's a new one isn't it? It looks a bit like me after decades of exposure to organophosphate insecticides!

    Sure does look to be in that N. ovata/bongso group. I think a more up personal look is needed so feel free to stick one in the package along with the Tbone steaks!

    This is a picture of a young N. ovata with a 1.5" pitcher (4cm) roughly.


    Color seems to take a while to develop fully. Has the color changed and gotten darker Rob? My ovata will get dark purple peristomes after a few weeks.

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

    Well if he's putting the stamps directly on the hind side as you suggested, exactly which end of the package did you want him to stick the Nep in? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
