    Dear all:

    With all my due respect to the Nepenthes growers (including myself), I would like to say that Nepenthes plants, in some cases, look very similar regardless of the species. Sometimes it is very monotonous to see a green pitcher with burgundy spots such as Fusca, Maxima, and others.

    With the exception of Rajah, villosa, jacquelinae, lowii, muluensis, ovata, bicalcarata, ramispina, albomarginata, and couple of others, pitchers tend to look very similar!!. tobaica and reinwardtiana. etc.

    So when you see a dark purple or black pitcher (it is something worthwhile to take your hat off and admire!!

    Dear all:

    I have just been informed by the Mansells that the Picture I posted in this website, according to other Nep experts, besides Charles Clarke, is not believed to be N. Izumieae. The question is who is doubting Charles's knowledge. I'll keep you posted if i can gather more information.

    Hi guys

    Charles is standing next to me and says that you cannot tell from whether the species above is IZUMIAE (spell it right&#33[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] or not from that pic. Izumiae has a large hook under the lid, comes in black, dark green and any colour in between and has pretty normal length tendrils, nothing particularly long. The pitchers grow to be about 30cm tall.

    Cheers, Troy.

    First of all:

    Fatboy, please pass this message to Charles:

    Are there any other characteristics typical of N. izumiae??. Thanks for that, and second, i just hope that Dr. Charles Clarke has the opportunity ot read his e-mail. Thanks again.

    Hi Pond boy:

    That's exactly the same reason why I like it so much. It is not as posh as rajah, but it has very distinguishing features, and the colour black is so cool!!. A very unique specimen indeed!!.

    I was wondering if anybody in the audience has Nepenthes of Sumatra and peninsular malaysia by Charles Clarke. If anybody does, PLEASE!!!!, COULD SOMEBODY SCAN PAGE 122 TO COMPARE THE PICTURE OF NEPENTHES SPECIES B WITH THAT OF THE PRESUMPTIVE N. IZUMIAE!!. i will be eternally grateful. Thanks

    Gus
