Thankyou all for your kind comments, I enjoyed looking at the H/L and intermediate species/hybrids that you all able to grow beautifully. Since I'm living in a tropical country, I have to be content with L/L and some intermediates nep species/hybrids... that's is until I can get some sort of...
Yay !! Now it started to rain :rookwoot: With cooler night time temperature and higher humidity, my neps started to respond well to the change in weather pattern. :grin:
Here's some of the pics to share :blush:

N. x Goblin (N. maxima x...
Thanks for organizing the contest, please keep up the good work. I'm honoured that a simple low lander such as N. rafflesiana can get a spot light among other more exotic intermediate / high land species & hybrids.
Thanks everyone for your kind comments, I think raff produce some of the coolest looking uppers among nepenthes species.
Raffs are common but this variant is very rare. The whole plant is at least 5-7 ft long now, I'm waiting for it to flower :grin:
Here's a shot of the whole plant... (not...

Thank you everyone for your kind comments.
I'm aware of this problem. I just follow what EP labeled their plants as when I recieved from them. The thing is, I as a mere hobbyist can't be 100% certain what species EP used as "N. thorellii" (you mentioned as well) and that's not counting if...
I would still go for ants. Most neps (except for a few) evolved naturally and secrete nectars to attract insects particularly ants (also other flying insects) to it's pitcher. So I think overall, ant wiould still be the best "food" for neps. That's just my personal view... :grin:
This prolonged draught and low humidity hot weather really make our life "hotter" than usual in Peninsular Malaysia.
Let's se how my neps are doing in such weather... I grew all my neps outdoor under 50% shade net in L/L tropical weather.
