N. mirabilis along the Cambodian coast

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Here is a tribute to N. mirabilis, an underrated species, as far as I can see. ;-)

I observed it several times along the Cambodian coast. I won't give you new informations about that widespread species. It grows in wet spots and in open habitats. Most of the plants I saw look exactly like the pictures I used to admire in the Nepenthaceae literature.

Just enjoy those elegant "pots"!

N. mirabilis near Kampong Som (Sihanoukville):

Open habitat, wet, with short shrubs and grasses.

This pitcher looks like N. clipeata 's, doesn"t it?

The most beautiful mirabilis in Cambodia (as far as I know) are found in Kbal Chay:

Wonderful "lowland" species! I grow it "around" my house, on free-air!

And when weather is very warm, it looks better!

Hugs!

Hello,

The plants from Dalat are Nepenthes smilesii (formerly N. anamensis).

The following is a hybrid including N. mirabilis. I have already seen it before. Where was it collected Lam83?

and a strange type:
