This exciting new book provides an update on the genus Nepenthes, covering all new species and discoveries made since the publication of Pitcher Plants of the Old World. Highlights include:

- 8 brand new Nepenthes species – including two from Borneo, two from Sulawesi, two from New Guinea, three from the Phillippines

- emended descriptions of N. lamii and N. thorelii (both plants were previously wrongly identified)

- an account of a newly discovered population of N. pitopangii(with spectacular colouration).

- an account of new understanding of the diversity of N. philippinensis and related species

- expedition reports and a comparison of all highland Nepenthes of Palawan (many of the most spectacular Nepenthes known).

- complete descriptions and a comparison of all recently described Indochinese taxa.

 

The full diversity, wild ecology and distribution of each new Nepenthes is accounted in full detail, along with a fascinating report of the discovery of each plant, written by its discoverers.

 

Signed copies bear the signature of Stewart McPherson.

IN SPIKE: 
An orchid plant may arrive in bud, in bloom or in various stages of in-spike development. A plant in-spike can take anywhere from 1 week to 2 months before flowers begin to open. We are one of the few nurseries to ship orchids in spike or bloom. Most of the time our carefully wrapped orchids in-spike or in-bloom arrive in good condition. However, due to conditions beyond our control, we cannot guarantee that all flower spikes, flowers, or buds will arrive in perfect condition.

NOT IN-SPIKE:
An orchid will arrive while it is not currently spiking or blooming due to being either before or after its bloom season. Check the "Bloom Season" information on the product page to see when the plant is expected to spike and flower. Many orchid lovers and hobbyists prefer plants that are not in-spike in order to watch the first stages of the spike emerging all the way through to the reward of the bloom! If you are sending a plant as a gift, you generally want to send the plant in-spike unless the gift receiver would prefer otherwise.
