    All very interesting. See what you've started N. gracilis! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    Here's a photo of a wild-collected plant that was shown in Tokyo during the June conference. I post it because it does show the globose base to the pitcher that Joachim mentioned earlier and being wild-collected means that there is little doubt that it's the real thing:

    i have nothing to add to this topic as a plant but, i do have a question.

    Rob, in the last post you mentioned that the plant was wild collected. is this aloud over there. also i thought that is plant was only found in one place from the reading that i have done. don't remember the location right off hand but, it was up a side of a mountain and a long wooden ladder to climb. from the pictures i have seen.

    George,

    The Japanese guy who owns the plant apparently collected it from the wild during the 1970's which is well before CITES legislation came into force in Indonesia. Collection from the wild these days is probably against Indonesian local laws, and it's export from Indonesia certainly would be in contravention to CITES legislation.

    About the very squat bottom on N. clipeata (similar to N. alata 'boschiana mimic' ) Tony's tiny offshoots in his greenhouse do have a rather fat bottom on them...maybe snap a picture of those little guys I was looking at Tony?

    More pics I took today:
    View of the stem between previous growth before I obtained the plants vs growth in my care. Stem is much thicker and colored and internodes much much shorter.


    Close up of the stem


    View of two pitchers growing from some basal shoots. These two pitchers were growing on the same stem and are consecutive. The one on the right with the more bulbous base is newer than the one on the left. For some reason pitcher form seems to vary from pitcher to pitcher.


    Sometimes there are remnants of wings and sometimes not.


    The next two are of the glandular crest. It was mentioned the possibility that N. eymae might be a parent if it is indeed a hybrid.

    Picture of the male flowers from Clip-1 clone. They open green and get the reddish color after a few days.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Tony,

    After examining your pictures and comparing them with
    my own plants, I am convinced that what you have really
    is N. clipeata. My plants have the same coloration, and
    the crest shown on your specimen is identical to
    what mine exhibit.

    Nonetheless, I find it interesting that the shape of the
    pitchers of your plant is somewhat noncharacteristic
    of the species, at least based upon what I've seen in
    person and in photos.

    Tony,

    It looks like the real McCoy to me. Especially since you noted how the pitchers vary on a single plant. If we all compare one pitcher on yours to one on ours, then doubt can start to creep in. It's nice to know clone#1 is a male, for future reference.

    Regards,

    Joe
