    Hi,

    the MT N. platychilla clones might look similar to their own plant:

    Ah, and their N. edwardsiana also has increased ins size:

    Cheers Joachim

    Max, it can sometimes take a long while to describe a species. Often there is only a single plant discovered at first and herbarim material may be insufficient for a proper description and to lodge in herbariums. I understand a male flower is important if one can be found. Then the author must do extensive research to ensure the plant has not already been described as something else. This often entails visits to herbariums, then the description has to be written and often a line drawing done. Then it has to be actually published and publications sometimes are backlogged for a long time. Finally, to get all this done. the discoverer has to be suffficiently motivated and have the time to go through the process.

    Joachim, I got a shock in that the photo I posted seems to taken from that Japanaese website. It's been circulating for a while and was sent to me as an e-mail attachment. I hope the owener's permission was obtained for it's general use. I'll try and check. That N. edwardisiana is nice!

    Joe, N. glandulifera looks a little like N. stenophylla, at least when juvenile, but the stem, petioles and underside of the leaves are covered in little black dots. When Ch'ien Lee discovered this species he at first thought the plants had a fungal problem but it turned out that the black dots are nectar glands. Sorry, I don't have a photo of this species.

    That would be Sp#7 from Malesiana then. Not sure I have a photo yet. I know Joel at NepenthesAroundTheHouse has a nice shot of a juvenile plant (probably listed in BobZ's website also). I did a double take to on the black nectar glands when I first saw them.

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

    Hi Rob,

    I already thought you had started using Photoshop, but I was very surprised you did show a plant of one of your main competitiors...

    Uwe Westphal from Plantarara made a similar bad experience when showing photos on his website he got by email and which were in fact stolen from other websites. He was accused of manipulating these photos for the use on his website at the CPUK-forum.

    Cheers Joachim

    Hi Joachim,

    You're joking (I hope!) about the use of PhotoShop for photo-theft! That modified photo was sent to me by a customer who wanted to know if we had the plant for sale. He gave his permission for us to use the photo but now I've found out where he got it from I've taken it off the forum and am awaiting permission from the true owner to use it.

    I have no problems with showing a photo of a plant from a competitor's nursery if the photo was taken by someone else and permission is given for us to use it. Is this "competitor" actuallly selling this particular species? I don't know.

    P.S.
    I just got permission to use the photo from the original owner, so it's back on. Thank you for pointing it out Joachim, I might never have known otherwise. It's possible to put on a digital copyright to photos but I believe it degrades the photo quality.
