    I hate our english system too. It's such a pain in the rump when talking to someone overseas via e-mail and re converting the metric units to english units. And visa-versa (having the metric user convert to english). I am training myself to use metric more often now, it is a heck of a lot easier.

    BTW, Joachim nice plants. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    This is WAY off topic, but.....

    I personally don't have a problem with British Imperial units. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] It's just one of those things that makes the USA more interesting than the rest of the world. I like metric for scientific stuff, and Imperial for causal stuff, sort of like speaking different languages, or having different currency. In the end, it's all just arbitrary. BUt that's just my opinion. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Hi Joachim,

    are you really shure that your N.gymnamphora is true ?
    It seems to me like a natural Hybrid,but a really nice one.

    Hi Christian,

    no I'm not sure about the N. gymnamphora at all! In fact I don't think it is N. gymnamphora or N. pectinata. It does look much more like the N. species A, Charles Clarke shows in "N. of Sumatra" on Page 209/210. Sadly he doesn't show real lower pitchers with wings. On the picture on page 210 the leaf apex of this species can be seen, which does absolutely match the leaf apex of my plant and isn't typical for N. gymnamphora being sub-apical.

    This picture does show more characteristics of this plant:



    Or larger: http://home.arcor.de/j.danz/N_gymnamphora.jpg

    Any inputs helping to identify this plant are welcome!

    Joachim

    P.S.: Forgot to mention, that if the mother plant was identified correct as N. gymnamphora my guess for the parent species is N. bongso. So it might be N. gymnamphora x bongso.

    Hi Joachim ,

    this is right the same thing I thought, when I have seen the photo. I think it is an hybrid of n.gymnamphora and bongso .

    If memory serves me the Farenheit system is zeroed at the point at which salt water freezes (under standard temperature and pressure.) I am at a loss as to why they assigned 212 to be boiling point though
