    Hi,

    Thought I would share with you a photo of a relatively new
    species which I have been growing for some time. This one
    is quite remarkable, and the attached photo does not do it
    justice. The pitcher shown is not quite as fully developed
    as future ones will be; the peristome should become about
    twice as wide as seen here. Still, a very lovely species,
    at least in my humble opinion!

    N. platychila is an intermediate grower, I believe, and has done
    quite well in my highland environment. Most folks who can
    grow N. lowii, or N. glabrata should have no trouble with it,
    and it may tolerate warm nocturnal temperatures even better
    than I am guessing. I don't know for certain, for I've no desire
    to test its limits!

    Wow. Nice. Looks like a realative of N. jacquelenae.

    By the way, if you say that it grows well beside lowii and glabrata, why did you refer to it as an intermediate grower? To me that says much warmer nights that lowii (which I would call a highlander). [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/rock.gif[/img]

    I indicated it as an intermediate due to what I know of its
    altitudinal distribution (which is little). However, I grow it
    alongside NN. glabrata and lowii. Hence my reference to
    those particular species. Moreover, as I said, it can probably
    tolerate warmer nights. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Very nice. It's kind of strange that several of the fairly recent(last few years) discoveries have a flat "horizontal" peristome, with this one, N. jacquelenae and the new one Andreas has from Sumatra. What's up with that?

    Regards,

    Joe

    Nice! I love the flared and striped peristome.
