    I'm guessing that those plants were "sacrificed" for the sake of the show. Because between transplanting, the whole trip, and being in (probably) all the wrong conditions will have a really negative affect on them. or am i totally wrong?

    Nepenthes are surprisingly hardy. Rob would have made sure they were shipped well and placed in the exhibit properly. They also seem to be all highland plants, which should be fine in cooler and drier conditions.

    As for the hybrid, I actually think its bongso x maxima (it's too big for a talangensis hybrid for a start), which Marcello Catalano took a picture of when he spent some time working at BE. A link to his picture is http://community.webshots.com/photo/...58645634mvxKWB

    Hi,

    many thanks for your nice comments Amori.

    N. talangensis was called N. bongso until 1995 when Joachim Nerz and Andreas Wistuba described these plants as new species in CPN23 (1995). According to their description pitchers are up to 12 cm big. The plant shown on Marcello's photo looks like N. talangensis x maxima as well. Rob will be able to tell more about this hybrid.

    Cheers Joachim

    Yes, I think we'll wait for Rob's verification. I'm sure I read the labels correctly though... but I probably didn't. As far as shocked plants go, there was one species in particular in which you could tell it was indeed in shock: N. bicalcarata. I've had my own plants in the past go into shock quite easily (from dryness), yet easily survive 40F conditions.
