    Yeah, I want one. I'll pay that. (Yes, I realize I'm not smart.)

    Great pics, thanks for the link!

    Capslock, dlybrand et al.:

    I don't know Amos Yu's email address, but I just sent him a PM asking for it. If you want to contact him directly via the Taiwanese forum, go to the link in my original post, look for his name (amosyu) and click on the first icon to the right of it (the one with the little speedometer) to send him a PM.

    cheers

    Hans

    Are you sure that is 100% amp? I think it looks like a N. x Hookeriana...though a humdinger of one!

    Cheers,

    Joe

    I agree Joe, that's exactly what I was thinking.

    I also wonder if Amos can get the correct paperwork if he sells you one of those plants. I have no idea what you need to receive one but the Sarawak gov is pretty anal about exporting ANY plant material without the correct paperwork.

    Cheers, Troy.

    I was confused too for a while, looking at that picture right before the airplane wing. But I found at the bottom of the thread Amos posted a few more pictures. The N. ampullaria with the red/green peristome is indeed odd.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    My reading of them, in order, is: Hookeriana, ampullaria, Hookeriana, rafflesiana, gracilis, rafflesiana, gracilis, bicalcarata, rafflesiana, ampullaria, ampullaria x bicalcarata (spectacular hybrid clone indeed), *shot over plane wing*, Trichocarpa, Trichocarpa ?, ampullaria (absolutely awesome - probably a fair bit of hybridisation in its heritage), same ampullaria.

    Tony, that red pitcher with the green and red perisrome caught my eye too. It looks like bicalcarata x ampullaria. What a fantastic natural hybrid.
    The last two pics of the spotted amp looks fairly "pure blooded" to me, but then again, I've never seen them in their habitat and Troy has probably seen hundreds. Troy, how many different ampullaria plants do you think you've seen? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
