    pitchers from the same plant ,from different plant and in the same location or different location show different colors variation.Could this be due to different growth rate at different time of year affected by ph level, due to level of rainfall during wet/dry season, and soil type.
    Generally unfertile white sandy soil tend to produce colorful and larger pitcher.( the rafflesiana ,photo no 1 ,sandy soil lower part of pix is noticeable.

    Photo no. 2shows the burnt portion of land due to shifting cultivation resulting in red pictures?









    sorry guys/girls for the different image sizes,am still learning. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img]

    well, top row 2nd and 3rd,and middle 4th are taken by the roadside of Jalan Rayang,Padawan(the road leading to Dunud Longhouse).This is an isolated old gravel mountain road leading to Tebudu border town near Kalimantan Indonesia.

    The last two were taken at Matang forest,somewhat eight miles from Kuching.It was a surprise and least expected place as nearby were farm houses and vegetable gardens.:laugh:

    Robert,
    We have really enjoyed seeing your excellent photos of Nepenthes in habitat. We like that you photograph the lowland species. Those are some beautiful ampullaria! Would very much like to know the conditions where they are growing. Some of them look like full sun.

    Trent,photos of ampullaria are all taken in the morning.They flourishes in the open ground previously burn by shifting cultivators.Now left fallow.Bushes,trees dreepers andnepenthes started to grow and reclaim the whole placePhoto no.2 top row shows the charcoalblack ground burnt twigs and branches still visible.The soil condition is white sandy,plants also have shallow roots

    Through physical observation am comparing this place and an undisturbed forest floors where there is no human activities.Middle 4th photo shows the same plant possesing varying coloration due to differing ph level 'cos of burning activities? Third photo top row aerial ampullaria was also taken within the same area as 2nd and 4th photo.

    The last 2 photo were taken in totally different location under tree shades
    .The soil here is dark brown lots of dead leaves.Hardly any sunlight except for intermittent lights broken through the leaves.while i was photographying 2 of my companion used reflectors to direct light on the pitchers,hence the warn color.Hope that explain:laugh:

    It's just really nice !

    As i can see, is there are many forms we don't yet cultivate !
    Look at the picture 4, an ampullaria with red pitchers and yellow/white peristome !
    A new one !

    Do the sand can " play " a part in those colours ?

    Lovely !
    I climbed Kinabalu, and i'll go soon again....
