  1. I'm pretty new to the world of Nep growing- but like most of us, I've wanted to germinate as many seeds of as many varieties as possible. However, after searching all the forums for many hours, the first thing I found was that the information out there is quite disperse and a lot of it is hotly debated. So I've taken on board a lot of the advice out there and spent a lot of time this year playing around with conditions and seeds, trying to get seeds to sprout. The big breakthrough for me came when our friend Delwin sent me 20 seeds of the N.veitchii Bario highland form- this was top of my li

  2. Hello, Just came back from a fantastic trip to Borneo, and of course saw a bunch of beautiful neps. So, I thought I'd show a few of my hundreds of photos. If someone's interested in more photos I probably have a bunch more I didn't post[emoji6] . In this post, I'm showing you the plants from Bako national park, Sarawak. I definitely took the most photos here and they were probably the best plants on the trip. More photos of the other locations will follow soon(mostly single isolated plants). (Several names corrected thanks to comment by Fran├žois, if anything

  3. Here are some more pictures, the following were taken at Semenggoh Nature Reserve, where I also saw Orangutans. The picture of the Proboscis monkey was taken at Bako. Nepenthes Ampullaria Gracilis Statue of an Orangutan holding a Nepenthes pitcher. Orangutans Proboscis monkey(at Bako National park). Unknown Nepenthes which seemed like it may have been planted there (at Semenggoh).

  4. There us a guy in ebay from sri lanka selling edwardsiana, raja seeds etc, it's a scam. If they are nepenthes then probably most likely they will be distillatoria which is a sri-lankan native. It will be years before you know and if you try to grow them as a highlander they wont survive anyway.

  5. The problem is that you could have paid a scammer too much money for something you won't know is wrong till it's far too late (unless the seeds are obviously not Nepenthes) and you can no longer get your money back or leave a bad review, thereby both getting ripped off and supporting these practices. That said I must have missed the part where you wrote that you got them on eBay.

  6. I received 6 samples of different species of Sphagnum today from a really kind sir from Italy, on ebay. He works with Sphagnum on a professional level and I don't think there are many who know as much about that plant as he does. This person also has a nice informative website on cultivation and description of some species, for those who are interested: http://www.coxnature.altervista.org/Sphagnum/GuidaSfagno.html (You can use the translate feature if you don't speak Italian) This is how the moss looked like when it arrived, they didn't mind the transport.
