    Air movement may be something worth experimenting with. To answer your question, there's a certain amount of natural air movement through our nurseries, but not a great deal since we have to limit it in the dry season by putting up polythene screeening. In the wild some lowland Neps live happily in very stagnant conditions (N. ampullaria, N. bicalcarata, those sorts of things) whilst many of the highlanders are windswept. A visiting commercial orchid grower suggested using a fan on some of the more difficult highland species, N. argentii in particular. Sounds ridiculous I know, but may be worth a try. Then again, N. lowii grows OK for us, and Mt. Trus Madi can get pretty breezy at times.

    Isn't N. hamata incredible? It's one of my favourites, but then again as you once write Tony, they're all my favourites. Thing about N. hamata though is that it grows so quickly for a highlander which is nice but results in soft pitchers. However, they sure look "hard"!

    Hi,

    n.g. your new digital camera seems to work nicely! Hope you were allowed to take some of Tony's plants home...

    The greenhouse looks great and especially all plants seem to be grown very hardy - like I do like them [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] From the pictures I would guess, Tony grows them in alphabetical order - the N. mira pitcher seems to sit in a N. macfarlanei pot...

    Joachim

    P.S.: The red N. clipeata pitcher does not look correct to me. The shape of the peristome and also the pitcher lid do look like there is a wrong plant in its family tree.

    Fantastic! I get to see Tonys Greenhouse without leaving MN! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
    Do you grow both lowlands and highlands in one GH? How do you regulate the drastic night temp differences for each "type" or at the small stage doesn't it matter as much and intermediate works?

    Real men don't use Rogaine! j/k [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
    Seriously, I'm one of the "few" for whom it doesn't work for, unless I feel like throwing $30 out the window every few months. I used the junk for a year and quit right before they started their "money back guarentee".
    The worst part is when I was a kid I was shaving off my hair in funny ways: mohawks, finns, charges, etc. I wanted to be bald(at least in spots), then 10 years later...

    OK. I'm baffled. What on earth is "Rogaine"?

    Joachim, what do you think of Tony's other N. clipeata, the one shown in the second photograph, do you think it's true to form?

    Careful where you crawl, it might be a trap!

    Rob,

    "Rogaine" is a male hair stimulant that is supposed to help gow hair back. I pretty much embrace my baldness and shave my head with electric shears.
    I was wondering about the red clipeata too. My first thought was it looked like a cross with N. eustaycha, but you would think it would have to be another Borneo plant. Maybe a red reinwardtiana?

    Regards,

    Joe

    Joe,

    Ah, so that's what "Rogaine" is for - I thought it was some new insecticide. Tony doesn't have a problem in the hair department in MHO. It's merely migrated downwards [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    As for that red N. clipeata, I wonder where it came from. If it's a hybrid, then there's probably not much around Mt Kelam that could produce such a hybrid naturally. I can see what you mean about the N. eustachya characteristics though. N. reinwardtiana is unlikely to be within viable distance. I would guess at human intervention in that one.
