    Hi All!
    Well...this topic is really for me!
    This is how my Copelandii pitchers are looking like!
    My Copelandii is from Borneo Exotics bought it on 18 September 2004.
    One year later it has developed also intermediate pitchers and now the true first upper pitchers!!! Those one in the photo are lower pitcher and an intermediate pitcher.
    Enjoy!

    And this is how the whole Copelandii plant looks like after one year! I bough it when it was only 15 cm high and this is my result!
    Really nice and easy plant!

    Let me know what you think!

    I've noticed that everyone has the Mt. Apo forms, does anyone grow the Mt. Pasian form?








    Note the bulbous base of this form. They are faster growers with better coloration than Mt. Apo forms.

    Thumbs up

    Hello Rainforest Guy!
    Mine is also from Mt. Apo? Well... I didn't know this!
    This also explains why it is not bulbous at the bottom!!!
    I am not really happy about its Upper Pitchers...I though that they would be more like a triangle.
    But anyway I must also say that my Copelandii is really an easy plant and also with poor light ( shading) it continue to produce its pitchers.
    Bye!

    Although considered a highland species. Both forms grow very well for me. The Mt. Apo form I believe is a higher elevation requiring more chill at night to grow (but grows easily in warm tropical Hawaii). I have noticed for me that the Apo form is more compact until it begins to vine. Keeping pitchers close to the stem, whereas the Pasian form tends to have longer leaves and tendrils sending their pitchers everywhere. The uppers on the Apo tends to be lime green to yellow while the Pasian form retains some of the coloration. If anything for you lowlander growers, try the Pasian form as it grows faster for me here.

    As a whole, it is a very forgiving species and should be around in cultivation for a long time.

    Not sure who might sell the Pasian form, but they're out there!
