cant remember if we have had anything from Singapore yet, but here's soem pics just to share from our very own nature reserves. Yes, we will NEVER be able to rival borneo, but our raff and amp varieties can still put up strong resistance!
the winner of the day: 30cm raff upper...though not in peak condition
was really exciting to see such a large (by our standards) pitcher in SG.
apologies for lack of gracilis photos. I was a bit lazy to take photos of gracilis since they were so abundant and (seemingly) unglamorous. the hookerianas werent very photo friendly either. hope this inspires the Bornean/indonesian/malaysian based forummers to take more pictures of your lowland jewels. Robert and junglemike, do get more photos of giant raff to compare the growth and structure.

Hi Lamwn, Thanks for posting the images and getting that tour organized! I actually also prepared a bunch for uploading already, but somehow got distracted by other things... Oh well. I hope we can schedule another tour some day.
Mike, some images are from Kent Ridge others from Pierce Reservoir.
Hi, thanks for the comments. Volker, I purposely used the amp photo with your shoes in it... really enjoyed your company and expertise too. thanks. Robert, I am not sure how to tell squat or typical or giant or etc. from the uppers. But I do hope you can show us more raff 'giant' pics as they really interest me...which is why I was all about snapping different raff forms thanks
typical squat - 2 forms 1/ lower pitcher with heavy red strip,red spots on the body, while the upper still bearing the red strip pristome,red dots around the upper section of the pitcher gradually disappering towards the bottom.
2/ Just the opposite of no.1
Since they all grow within the same area many variation have evolved. Generally the colour pattern would help to determine. Other form, for example, elongated or the giant form with yellowish green bear the same colour on the upper, and vice versa. Imagine the various raff. form in existence, much wider than ampullaria.
yap,the first one in your post,it's the typical squatting form,.Any photo of the lower pitcher. Just my assumption from past observation,the lower pitcher would be spotted red but the peristome have very light red strip.
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.
