    Hey everyone!
    So the Royal Horticultural Society Autumn Show is next week. I'm really excited since Borneo Exotics will be there, along with other CP nurseries (so I read somewhere). I will post pics from the event on this thread.
    Ta very much

    So here goes!
    I have to say that the Autumn Show was spectacular in all forms, especially at the Borneo Exotics display. Very special thanks to Rob Cantley and Diana Williams (as well as other members of staff) for making all this possible!
    Some pictures didn't turn out well, therefore I had to pick them out. I also apologise if modem users have trouble loading these pics... One picture I really would've liked to post was that of a large N. bongso pitcher which was close to black.
    And now...


    Here we have most of the display. You can imagine my excitement when I got this close!


    This N. copelandii was in the far corner. It surely is a beauty. The pitchers on this plant were well close to a foot tall, if not more. I wasn't a fan of this plant until today!


    A very nice form of N. sanguinea. Aren't some people really fortunate?


    Not a very big fan of this plant either until today! This is just one of the several N. mikei plants around. All very beautiful indeed!


    Unfortunately, this picture of N. talangensis (actually talangensis x maxima -- a mistake on my part) didn't turn out so well, but it was the best one I had taken. There were lots of these plants on display, dangling there pitchers everywhere. I can't say anything more than WOW at the moment...


    Mmmmm.... candy... That's the impression I got when I saw the peristome of this N. veitchii pitcher.


    And in the far back we have Mount Veitchii. I especially liked this section of the display.


    A highland N. truncata pitcher in all its glory... Amazing.


    N. densiflora. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]


    And last but not least, a troop of healthy N. hamata's. This was the first time I got to see pitchers larger than an inch so it was pretty darn exciting! This makes a great desktop wallpaper [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] .

    Other plants on this display were: N. rafflesiana varieties, N. bicalcarata (typical and red), large N. ventricosa's, N. maxima x talangensis (or the other way around), N. trichocarpa, Heliamphora spp., a mass of N. viellardi, and an army of N. ampullaria of several varieties. I probably missed a few plants though [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] .
    I hope you liked these enough to look at them twice. Thanks again to the crew at Borneo Exotics for their marvelous work!

    Best regards,
    Amori

    And the award goes to.......


    I 'm not surprised they got the Gold Medal. This display was absolutely beautiful.

    I'm guessing there are some people wondering whether I got any plants. As a matter of fact, they only sold baby highland N. truncatas... but at a steal! Each plant, no matter what size or clone, were GBP10.00 (approximately $18.00). Rob let me search the box to choose a plant (thanks so much Rob!), and I managed to get the biggest one:

    The leafspan is 3", and so is the height of the pitchers. What a catch I must say!

    Best regards,
    Amori

    all I can say is WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Absolutely stunning! To own a talangensis that big! Mine will probably be there in 3 or 4 years... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] As for the truncata... That is what I call a steal!
