My caving trip to explore a cave which got a waterfall inside has been postponed at the last minute. So, I decided to drive to remote area of Padawan to survey the area - to find the next mountain climbing spot.
In this trip, me & my cousin found a lot of beautiful pitcher plants along the country road.
The most amazing species is Nepenthes reinwardtiana. This is the first time that I found it so near to the road, in low altitude (less than 100 feet)!!!
The "eye spots" of N. reinwardtiana at this site is very very small.
Another interesting plant is a leaf-less plant (only flower) or saprophytic flowering plant found in very dark jungle floor. The flower is very tiny; less than 0.5cm across!!! So, I tried reverse photography to shoot that tiny flower (reverse the lens & photograph it manually).
A limestone hill that I haven't climb before.
Storage hut & hill paddy field.
First time found N. reinwardtiana in very low altitude, at the roadside.
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.

mylesg: i havent checked in here for a while, why does it seem all the CP forums have lost their once strong activity? the trade/sale section used to be so active and now its a ghost town. where is everybody hanging out these days for a strong online CP community?

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.
