    Question

    N.northiana in its natural habitate ie limestone hills of Bau,endemic to Sarawak(Island of Borneo).This is the only place in the world where they are found.The limestone hills also contain gold. Because the quantity is low and mining on limestone is difficult therefore their existence is save for the meantime.
    I will post again of cross hybrid when the negatives are develop. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] My Webpage

    Hi there, you posted this in the wrong place so I have moved it to the nep forum. As far as posting pictures, you need to upload your picture to some space online in order to post it to a forum... It seems your link is from your computer and that won't work. If you Have no way to upload to the internet I would be happy to host it for you. Just email the picture to adnedarn(at)comcast.net.
    bye for now

    Robert,
    Really look forward to seeing your pics! You mentioned a hybrid. Is it a natural hybrid with northiana?

    Yah, I was also curious about those images! Don't mention that gold thing, otherwise people here start to grind up their jewelery and add it to their soil mixes. My favorite: 2 pine bark, 2 LFS, 1 laterite, 1 gold - sounds good!

    Here are the pictures for rbjong and the descriptions that were given to me:
    spider in N.ampullaria-the spider has made the
    N.ampullaria its home.Right inside are web constructed
    to trap falling insect.However only noticible to naked
    eye.

    a young aerial/upper N.ampullaria.There are
    other variety with spotted red.This variety is not
    very common but are localised in some location.

    More pictures from Robert:
    N.northiana in its natural habitate on limestone
    hills.This place was once heavily mined for its gold
    deposits but because the quality and quantity were low
    therefore uneconomical to run.The place was left to be
    reclaim by nature,at least for the meantime.


    a comparison of the size of
    N.northiana(aerial).The mineral water bottle hold 1.50
    litres of water is self explainatory.


    The natural hybrid is N.northiana x ? I am not quite
    sure or it's naturally cross with either gracilis or
    mirabilis?.The leaves blade are thin similar to
    gracilis.


    The only way to find out here is to pay the
    Forest dept botanist a visit. Comments welciome please.
