    Lovely photos Joachim, did you use flash? I think not with the backlighting. Very nice composition too with the moss etc.

    BTW, do you get the impression that N. sibuyanensis doesn't produce pitchers unless the tendril comes up against something hard? In your case it appears that the tendril came up against the pot. It's something I've noticed in the nursery but I'm not sure if it's a rule.

    Hi spectabilis,

    yes, I also believe the pitchers grow better when the inflating bud presses itself into some humid soil. The moss in the pot isn't LFS though.

    Jeff, many thanks for your comment!

    Cheers Joachim

    "If" the pitcher needs to rest against something to form(which would be a great evolutionary tactic to producing huge pitchers w/o uprooting the plant), would that mean it is unlikey to have uppers? I don't know what this species has for types of pitchers, just speculating.

    Regards,

    Joe

    Incidentally, I think Joachim has a great tank set-up, including a bit of natural sunlight as it does. His plants seem to have great coloration.

    Regards,

    Joe, about upper pitchers, I belive it does produce them...thought I remembered seeing a wild photo of an upper N. sibuyanensis pitcher....can anyone back me up or disprove me?

    That's an interesting thought Joe. I spent several weeks in the habitat for N. sibuyanensis and never saw an upper pitcher that I recall. Didn't think much about it at the time but now I'm wondering...

    Hi,

    Rob, sorry didn't see your first post. The picture was taken with natural sunlight from the back. My plants get full sun for about 8 hours every day. This is the ugly backside of the pitcher:

    [img]http://home.**********.com/users/joachim/N_sbuyanensis_120504.jpg[/img]

    The tendris is compressed and it is attached from the side into the pitcher. Initially I didn't expect this pitcher to inflate after seeing this deformation but it developed quite well.

    As far as I remember a discussion with Christian, he also mentioned that pitchers only form when the tendril is pressed into the soil. So he directs the developing tendrils into the pots of the plants by hand.

    Cheers Joachim
