    I have about 5 or 6 plants of the Malesiana tentaculata from Sulawesi. I've noticed that some plants have deep green leaves, but others have deep purple leaves when grown in the same bright conditions. The green clones produce basals profusely, but the purple clones haven't.

    Has anybody else got clones of this species showing the same diversity? Tony, you'd have noticed it probably.

    Hamish,

    I also have the purple leaved form from MT, to date I have removed and rooted 6 basals from the mother plant.

    Hi Guys,

    I haven't really looked that closely! I have gone and made a few cuttings from some nice clones with red peristomes though.

    It is possible that different clones would be more or less genetically inclined to make basal shoots. Although I suspect cultural conditions and vining stage and direction (upright, scrambling horizontally) all play a roll as well.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
