    Thanks for taking that the right way guys, I was trying to give you some info not sound like a "know it all"

    Yeah but they also have a problem with Muslim separatists (sp?) in many of the areas that the Neps grow.
    We were going to do a trip to Sulawesi last year but then there was a problem between the Muslims and Christians there too so we canned it. That MAY still be on the cards sometime as the publisher of his other two books was expressing some interest in it but it won't be any time soon.

    Cheers, Troy.

    I remember Charles saying at the 2000 conference, something to the effect,"I loathe the Phillipines. You could not pay me to go there." So, I don't anticipate a book soon on that subject.
    I ran across an interesting comment by Don Schnell in his revised "Carnivorous Plants of the United States and Canada."
    What does this have to do with Nepenthes? It sort of goes with the original thread I started here. He mentions Darlingtonia growing often on ultramafic soils(serpentine based-as some Neps like rajah grow), but also mentions they would grow better in other soils, but there is less competiton from other plants. That makes me less inclined to try and duplicate these soils, as their pressence may be due to the lack of competion rather than superior growth habitat.

    Regards,

    Joe
