    Hi Josh,

    I have a similar clone of N. singalana and my about four years old plant also doesn't produce bigger pitchers than yours. The plant pictured in Clarke's N. of Sumatra is a very distinct form from what we grow and might not be typical for N. singalana.

    Cheers Joachim

    Thanks for the photo. Does this size pitcher have the hooked glandular crest on the lid that Clarke describes in his Sumatra book? The structure of the peristome of EP's/your plant seems to vary from the plants illustrated as sp. B., which is narrow and not sharply raised in the front.

    Clearly, the variation in the Nepenthes singalana species complex is a bit confusing at this point.

    Cheerio,

    SJ

    Hi stone Jaguar, the pitcher does have a hook underneath the lid. This plant's ancestor is from gunung talakmau. N. species B is found in Borneo and it is now called N. hurrelliana. the peristome of species B looks more like veitchii.

    I think what we are encountering here and i am glad Josh pointed it out is that it is possible that there may be an izumiae X singalana hybrid in cultivation and it is mislabeled as N. singalana. Whether your plant is a hybrid or a pure species, remains to be clarified.

    I was not referring to Clarke's Borneo book, but rather, the later book on the Neps of Sumatra and Malaysia. I don't have it at hand here in the office but I seem to recall that there are two (at that time) undescr. spp, also labelled "A" and "B". I think that "A" is now known as Nepenthes alpicola while "B" would be N. izumiae. In the body of the text discussing N singalana Clarke suggests the possibility that there are two or more spp. involved. This now appears to be the case.

    It will be interesting to see how all these forms grow out.

    Rgds,

    SJ
