    A curse on you all, may your BE-99's never attain more than 15cm in height and may your forest N. diatus turn out to be N. densiflora... Um!

    Sorry, just my quirky English sense of humour. Or "humor".

    I never again saw a pitcher on N. rafflesiana like that one. Photo was taken in mid 1980's at a ministierial seminar in Brunei where I was trying to persuade the Government there that there was an area of forest worth preserving. BE-99 came from seed taken within 100m of the plant that pitcher came from. Habitat is all gone now though, so no-one was listening.

    BTW, I haven't changed a bit [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smilie4.gif[/img]

    Apart from that. there are some fantastic photos of cultivated plants in this thread. Seems to me that folks are just getting better and better at growing Neps!

    For everyone else here's the pic we're talking about (linked from BE - I hope Rob doesn't mind)


    TC the peristomes on the N. diatas (I need one of them) and N. veitchii are excellent! How big is the veitchii? Mines been growing so slow with no signs of pitchers like that anytime soon!
    I'm still trying to convince myself that the photo isn't 'doctored'. That's incredible!

    My N. diatas persitomes don't look much like that, incidentally. Curious.

    Very nice plants!

    hehe thats a N. rafflesiana sillie!
    In bleak description the waves come crashing; battering the very instinct of every lusting moment to fulfill this gaping desire. A mouth as dry as soot and how it once had tasted of life, fit within a momentís time; And how those fleeting days laid in the light of blissful suffering. -me

    That's terrible Rob, a real shame nobody in power was listening (of course that's not unusual). If there were Neps like that in the area just imagine what else was living on those old trails! Then again, maybe we shouldn't... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]

    Hi Tony,

    your clone really looks very different from mine. The shape of the pitchers and also the colouration is quite different.

    The pitcher in the front was not fully coloured when the picture was taken. FYI, my plant originates from Andreas.

    WOW! All the plants look great, and I'm especially awe-struck my Sword's N.miranda pitchers! A couple of people on this site recommended N.miranda as a starter plant--from the looks of those pitchers, I'm hooked.
