stewart Posted February 28, 2010 Report Share Posted February 28, 2010 Hi CPUK forum members, During my travels in the Philippines, I was fortunate to meet up with Chi'en Lee, and together we climbed a mountain. We encountered an interesting Nepenthes taxon. While it grows no where near N. mira, it definitely seems most closely related to that species. I just returned today from this expedition, and am about to start a comparative study of this taxon with N. mira to establish how the two plants differ, if indeed, they are significantly and consistently distinct. I thought I would share some photos in case you may assist in comparing this new taxon - N. sp. G - with your cultivated N. mira plants. Currently N. mira is known only from Cleopatra's Needle - a small peak in northern Palawan. The plant grows only on the very top of the mountain, and we still have relatively little idea of the full diversity of that species - especially since it most likely occurs on other (unexplored) peaks nearby. So any thoughts regarding how the plant below compares to your N. mira plants would be appreciated. Please feel free to contact me directly here - Contact Cheers Stew Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
