    Rob's photo reminded me of the botanical illustration in Danser's book.
    Is petiolata only found on Mount Legaspi? What's the approximate altitude range? I would guess it grows typically highland, which makes it problematic for those of us in the south Florida lowlands.

    I thought it was found on Mnt. Hinong Hinong(I am sure I butchered that spelling).
    I am not trying to insult this great plant, but it does kind of look like(especially in the second photo) a dark red N. x ventrata, with which you can see why some thought a alata hybrid or red burkei.


    Regards,

    Wow, nice plant!! Is that a N. tenuis behind you vining like nuts? I am thinking it may be something else, but I am drawing a blank on the name... also, what kind of plant is the pitcher on the bottom right? It's wonderful!!

    N. petiolata comes from Mt. Hilong Hilong near Legaspi. It's a nasty logged out mountain to hike through, with mostly secondary grwoth and lots of rattan. The summit area is however untouched which is where the Nepenthes are.

    I'd have to go through my records for the precise altitude Trent, but it's about 1,500m or so. We shall try it in the lowland nurseries and see how it goes. We've got a new website nearly ready and that's the sort of data we want to put on it.

    Tony, your plants are typical of the coloration at that age. So far we have raised about 12 plants of different clones to a larger size and they are all uniform red, there doesn't seem to be any variation at all in coloration.

    Lithopsman (is that your real name??), I wish it was N. tenuis! Happens to be a man - made hybrid that I like very much. Anyone like to guess the identity? Here it is:



    And it's no use looking for a clue in the filename [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Oh, and the pitcher just sneaking in on the right is my absolute favorite man-made bybrid but I'll save a photo for later!

    Always amazes me how the pitcher color and shape can change as the plant grows from seedling to mature plant and from lower to upper pitcher!

    OK I won't look at file names any more hehe

    N. ventricosa x inermis
    and N. spectabilis x talangensis

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

    Hey Tony, correct with the first one and only half right with the second. I'll leave it at that for now! Have a great weekend everyone! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
