    This morning i visited the Sarawak Timber and Research Centre to have an appointment with the head of Dept.and was pleasantly surprise to also met Mr Chien Lee (happened to be there and was introduce to me.This was my first time to meet him, am glad to have).

    Mr Lee helped to identify some of the neps,including those i posted. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] he must have combed all over the Bau hills and saw the same pitchers. It is confirmed and it is gracilis x northiana. There is a name for it i.e N.bauensis. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    The last photo is pure N.albomarginata.

    No more doubt.

    Am posting some images,hopfully it helps to answer some queries.

    The limestone hills are hardly 500 metres in height,some have submerge water barely knee deep.Temperature day and night fluctuate between 22 celcius to 28 celcius. Mountains and hills at night are shrouded in heavy mist,and Bau hills are no exception. Because of the sun elevation different part of the hills receive sunlight at different time of the day.Trees are very sparse,thin and short.The limestones are rough and very loose,some are razor sharp.

    Bau Hills in the backgroung,shrouded in morning mist..7.00am



    ...all clear by around 8am...taken from another angle.Note the limestone ourcrops and submerge pools..


    note the sloping limestone...young northiana taking root in open space...no shade.


    ..lower northiana.Notice the base of plant...loose decay leaves and collection of sediments..sparse vegetation.....parts of roots are exposed.Roots penetrated deep into limestone..


    ...wherever possible northiana(aerial) "climb" .Colors can vary too ( as compare to the earlier post )


    Hope these help...Robert

    I want to be there! Looks amazing, never seen so many wonderful Northiana pics all at one go!
    MAy I ask 1 question, do you visit these sites as a tourist or as ... ... as in photography is your hobby or are you studying these plants. I think I am rather ignorant, but some of these places are protected and inaccesible to public arent they? Or is that only for rajah?
    After seeing all these wonderful pics you have posted, I really want to go to Sarawak too!
    thanks for wonderful photos!

    I came here to practise photography.Am studying pitchers for a purpose.The place is a protected private property.Travel agents possess permission to visit the area. However N.northiana are also found in adjoining areas.Northiana can also be seen hanging on cliff surfaces containing the Fairy Cave. Thanks for the response,Lam.

    Hi Robert [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    I wanted to offer a belated welcome to the forums. I saw where you posted your photo in the Picture Thread. Thank you...very nice photo! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Also...thanks for this very interesting topic and wonderful photos. It is a real treat since most of us will never have the opportunity to see such amazing things in person. All your photos are just beautiful. I really enjoy the ones that show the habitat...the mountains and pools.

    Thank you for sharing your photos and knowledge. I hope you continue to do so! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] I'm envious of what you get to see in person!

    Thanks,Suzanne,for the reponse. I hope with the posting we are more aware of the various nepenthes in their natural habitats.Because all neps here are protected plants and there is not much of a discussion among the public,except for Nature Society,among photographers and just some months ago a forum Held by Mr.Ch'ien Lee.

    Some years ago when i came across mirabilis and ampullaria i thought these plants are common in every corner of the earth:O .My perception changed when i saw in the local papers a local resident was fined for collecting (digging up whole plant) and selling lowland neps.(Tissue Culture exempted,that is what i learnt).

    It is great to be in this forum,with many members from different cultural and racial backgroumd having the same interest,to discuss,learn and exchange the methods of growing and thereby promote conservation
