Enjoy

some great photos there 8)

Had to have a couple of looks at the N x Edwardsiana,very nice.Some of the close up pictures of the Rajah and Villosa are amazing.The thing that amazes me is that we as growers try so hard to do the right thing for our plants but when you see wild plants they are growing in some rough old looking soil and are getting blasted by full sun and drenching rain and still look amazing,makes me think that im trying to hard :(

Bye for now Julian

Really nice trip Seeländer.

But about the Malesiana Nursery, it's not a nepenthes Pervillei.

The shape of the pitchers looks like the Pervillei, but the general form of the leaves, and the pitchers is closer in fact than an Alata i think.

Regards.

Kinabalu.
