    I wish... northiana was easier to grow. Then I'd wish I had one [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] .

    I don't think the last photo is of a natural hybrid of N. northiana. For one thing the peristome is too thin. See N. Miranda's peristome, that what a N. northiana hybrid should resemble.

    These photos are great! Just what I was hoping to see!
    Do you know the natural lighting, was it shady or rather bright? and were the roots in very shallow soil? or moss? or deep? dry, or wet? That is a large plant, and I think this must be one of the most beautiful neps!
    Thanks

    RaindforestGuy u may be right.I have shown some people who are knowledgable of nepenthes but could'nt give a definite answer.However i will post when i get a definite one.

    Lam the photos were mostly taken under shade of trees,therefore lighting was soft and need the help of reflector.In the case of N.northiana a very thin layer of soil and mixture of dead leaves.soil are well drain.In some instances roots are slightly exposed.N.northiana in limestone area have deep penetrating roots to hold on limestone outcrop and hill slopes.Hope that help.

    Hi rbjong,

    very nice pictures! The last one looks like N. reinwardtiana although the eye spots are missing.

    Cheers Joachim

    I don't know about the "hybrid" what is indigenous to the area? Again, I agree with Michael, gracilis x northiana would have a more fluted peristome certainly.
