Sockhom, I'm not sure why you feel argentii isn't part of the deaniana group? Sure, it is a miniature and has single flowers, I believe those are just the results of it living on that very narrow ridge/bit of slope. In other, less precarious habitats, the radiating species from Borneo have bbecome much laarger, nearly asbig as N. rajah. When we look at argentii, we see the flower stem is huge compared to the plant and I believe this, perhaps, shows it is still in the process of becoming smaller. No other small species produces such a large flower stem. Also, given the fact the Philippines, Borneo and where N. insignis grows were all interconnected at some point, I see no reason to believe multiple lineages have no been shared/distributed throughout these now remote islands. For example, it is nearly a straight line from where N.villosa grows on Mount Kinabalu to N. agentii on M. Guitan Guitan. (Sp?) These chains of mountians and islands are a clear path for a radiating lineage.

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
Actually, you may have a point. I was indeed fooled by the diminutive stature of N. argentii. A closer inspection seems to show affinities, especially the pitcher structure and the leaves. I still have to compare the flowers though. Incidently, I have small attenboroughii plants at the moment that are roughly 10 cm large. Some look like stocky argentii. I shall post a picture. :-)
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.
