    Very nice Josh.

    FWIW, I've not noticed any wax on the leaves of mine at all. Could it be that it is something to do with a more mature plant? Maybe one that is vining?

    My N. eustachya had a waxy exudate on the leaves even when it was small.

    How much light do you have yours under?

    All those forms could very well be from the same place as all different colours grow mixed together in the area around Kelok Sembilan. Light doesn't seem to have much to do with the colouring: there are huge white ones in full sun and dark red in the shade. I am inclined to think the colouring is genetic rather than anything to do with light.

    All are in intermediate conditions, at about 800 to 900m.

    Cheers, Troy.

    Hi all,
    We are growing five of the (red x purple) seedlings very sucessfully here in hot, muggy south Florida. Conditions are lowland. They get very strong morning light, a bit more shade during the heat of the day. Over night lows are probably closer to 75 F. We'll see how they do over the course of the summer.

    I have a few different color forms. None seem to appreciate the Winter months when temps are colder. I would certainly consider them lowland/intermediate.

    Jaosh,

    With reagrds to the wax and light... Mine is in a glasshouse with a layer of thin bubblewrap. IF the sun is out it is getting about 5-6 hours direct light (Winter and short days).

    Has anyone else experienced this waxy coating?
