    This is very sad to hear. What has led this form to become extinct in the wild? Habitat loss? Over-collection?

    Habitat destruction due to logging.

    Mt. Pasian is in the middle of a huge logging concession called 'Picop Forestry'. When I was last there in 1996 you needed special papers and to pass 3 armed border posts to get in. Aircraft are not allowed to overfly the area in case the extent of the logging becomes public. The colony of N. copelandii was very fragile at that time and I would expect it is now gone as the extent of the ongoing habitat destruction was appalling. Ditto the Pasian highland N. truncata which is from the same mountain although it has a wider distribution than N. copelandii in that area.

    thanks MrAga73
    here in southern california its getting colder and it starting to get cloudier and starting to rain. its great for my copelandii and the others. someone told me that mine may go into uppers pretty soon because of the lack of color on the body of the pitcher
