    As my highlanders get larger and larger, I can't really take them out of the rack for my photoshoot-style photos.

    Nepenthes maxima Borone MT
    Nepenthes maxima Borone, Sulawesi MT; this is technically a lowland N. maxima but I grow it as a solid highlander year round.

    Nepenthes glandulifera BE
    N. glandulifera BE seedgrown

    Nepenthes sp. Langkawi
    N. sp. Langkawi

    Nepenthes boschiana Sakumbang BEe basals
    N. boschiana Sakumbang seedgrown BE basals and a Vappodes cane cutting

    Some lowlanders:

    Nepenthes khasiana
    N. khasiana; while usually considered a highlander, this species is found down to 500 masl and I've had better luck growing it warm. It's also a myth that the species ever experiences frost in habitat.

    Nepenthes "thorelii" Kondo (kampotiana?)
    N. "thorelii"; this plant has a long history -- collected in the 1970s by Kondo, probably near Kampot, Cambodia, this plant is very likely N. kampotiana

    Nepenthes vieillardii BE
    N. vieillardii BE

    Nepenthes campanulata BE

    A peek at some new things:

    Nepenthes singalana Belirang BE
    Nepenthes singalana Gunung Belirang, BE; if this form of the species wasn't so inexpensive I bet people would really appreciate it more. This is my second clone of this form.

    Nepenthes copelandii Apo BE
    Another second clone, Nepenthes copelandii Mt. Apo, BE.

    Nepenthes sibuyanensis
    A very interesting N. sibuyanensis pitcher. I wouldn't be surprised if this plant has some recent N. argentii admixture.

    That N. Singalana looks very nice. How demanding is it in terms of cultivation? Your right about it being relatively inexpensive. I wouldn't mind picking one up to add to my collection.

    Great N. singalana! You have a good point about, perhaps, its price affecting peoples appreciation for it. There are a few plants that are far less interesting morphologically speaking that seem to garner more respect or interest and they do tend to be on the pricey side, so perhaps theres something to this. Also I think rarity has something to do with it. Plants that you're less likely to see are going to be ore interesting to begin with since its not often seen....


    I really like your N. vieillardii, it seems to be doing great. That plant can be somewhat finicky IME. how long have you been growing it and any thing you do special?

    In my experience, N. singalana is a relatively quick grower and very forgiving as far as Sumatran species go. I've noticed that many Sumatran Nepenthes are pretty finicky or grow in odd bursts for me although N. singalana is not one of them. This is probably one of the only species from Sumatra that I'd say could grow on an average windowsill.

    Yeah, I certainly wasn't expecting the N. singalana to look this good on arrival. I'm hoping it will get a little darker, as my other clone seems to be much lighter.

    As for the N. vieillardii, I've had it since late January and grow it in the same mix the nursery grew it in (a mix of perlite, kanuma, silica sand, and some peat) and let it go slightly dry between waterings. It grows with my other lowlanders, including N. campanulata, N. northiana, and N. clipeata under humid but well-ventilated lowland conditions (70-82 F). Like all of my Nepenthes, I feed it pretty heavily with fish food, which helped this plant put on size pretty quickly as you can see:

    N. vieillardii BE
    Here it is in March, 2 months after acquisition.

    Nepenthes vieillardii BE
    Nepenthes vieillardii BE
    And in August, ~7 months after acquisition

    It's a great species that always has multiple pitchers on it. I honestly don't pay much attention to it but I'm really excited that it's putting on some size now.

    I find it very interesting that you find N. singalana to be very easy/forgiving. Of all the Nepenthes I currently own (which I admit is not many) it's the only one that is not growing what I would consider normally (no pitchers for a while then suddenly a tiny pitcher on the oldest leaf) and grows very slowly. I have a "Tujuh" clone if that helps.

    I've actually tried to establish the Tujuh form several times, but my material was never very healthy to begin with so I've struggled with that one too. I tried again a couple of years back, but what came in never really stood a chance:

    My Tujuh is actually finally growing another (hopefully normal-sized) pitcher so we'll see how it gets on from here. It had a good start when I first got it, growing a pitcher twice the size of the ones it came with, but has been sulking ever since. The funny thing is, I actually ordered a Belirang and was sent this plant by mistake. When I asked about it I was told this one's more desired / less common - perhaps that's because it's not as easy to grow?
