    Wow, those are beautiful pitchers! Will you please post one of the whole 2-storey plant? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]

    Endparenthesis:

    From what i understand, that's Rob Cantley, and i'm pretty sure the image is available on his website somewhere, and has been around for a long, long time. So i don't think it's been doctored.

    Of course, i might be completely wrong in that, and i'm sure someone will correct me.

    I also love my rafflesianas, but unfortunately they don't do all that well once they outgrow the terrarium here. Slow growth and steady pitchering, but reduced pitchers. However, it does better than ampullaria on my windowsill. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    I like rafflesiana to bad I traded mine because it did not like highland/intermdiate conditions. I got a terrarium to put lowlanders in after that.

    That pic is on Borneo Exotic's website. I don't know if it's Rob Cantley, but i know it's from BE.
    Update: Parents convinced to allow me to keep greenhouse heated over winter. Most species will not be lost. Too lazy to update growlist.

    You are correct. The original is on Rob's site at

    it's not doctored - honest! That photo was taken in 1986 at a Seminar in Brunei where I was trying - unsuccessfully - to persuade Ministers not to develop the area of forest where plants like that grew.

    That's Sad! I hear of this all the time, primary forest hacked down for development! Imagine the hundreds of years required for the flora and fauna to develop and its gone in several hours of sawing and hacking!
    Anyway, what clone, then is the plant in the pic, I see that there are clones 154, 99 etc just curious to know which clone that plant would be?
    Also, has anyone seen a pic of raff Giant's uppers before...I never heard of it before, wonder how it would look like, if it even existed!
