The Blumea paper isn't on the website yet but apparently three new Nepenthes species are named; N. armin from Sibuyan, N. tboli from Mindanao and N. zygon from Mt. Pasian in Mindanao. N. tboli was previously mentioned in a key to the N. alata group in a previous paper by the same authors.
I believe N. copelandii "Pasian" (now N. zygon) have been questioned for years, since it didn't have the infundibular upper pitchers it should have. I didn't think Cheek would describe so many species in the N. alata complex, before finalizing the description for N. kongkandana. That one seem to be in limbo.
Folks, that plant is not N. copelandii. It isn't just the shape of the upper pitchers, but that is the most obvious feature one can notice from several meters. What I mean is, noticing this is a different species takes very little in the way of effort.
These are some really bad companies, all shells of Plantron Inc., so don't order from them unless you want small and dead plants they don't want to refund:
Farmer Seed and Nursery
Four Seasons Nursery
House of Wesley
Richard Owen Nursery
How do garbage companies like these stay in business, ripping people off year
For some reason the link to the open access paper only works for a while then cuts out. It is available on the Blumea website here: www.ingentaconnect.com/content/nhn/blumea/pre-prints;jsessionid=ekcjm6rjoofn.alice as the third paper from the top. If this doesn't work go to the website for the journal Blumea and look at their "fast track" articles. It is the paper on the N. alata group. The paper is open access so just click on the title to download it.
thatoneplantboi: Hey guys, I'm new to growing nepenthes, I'm getting a mini indoor greenhouse to grow them in. What kind of light should I use for them? Also, if you could provide a link to a product, it would be very much appreciated

borneo: Yes, they work superbly. But you don't need expensive lights, cheap ones work well too.

vidyut: hey mylesg. glad to hear that. Love this forum. Facebook can't organize knowledge like this. Will participate as much as I can.

vidyut: Photobucket has ruined this place and many other forum archives with years and years of photos worth referencing now blurred. Priceless information hostage to services once free, begging for adoption, arbitrarily monetized.
