    I know that the Thai ANNUAL Shows are spectacular, regardless of whichever part of Thailand they are held in, but our ANNUAL Shows anywhere here in Malaysia are equally as good. If you read Yuk Weng's post carefully he was referring to aMONTHLY Show - so that is not a fair comparison. These monthly shows are usually held for committee meetings and confined to just a few members and a handful of plants.

    BTW if you care to refer to some posts from our members in Vietnam re their 'shows' held in some sidewalk cafe .............

    If you disparage other members plants - even if you happen to be correct ( and it seems you are the only one in the forum who thinks so ! ) - you will cause offence. Maybe you should learn a bit before you go shooting your mouth off.
    If you claim you have better plants and don't show them, we won't believe you. Braggarts and liars are regrettably found in every aspect of the world. In my book you put up, or shut up.

    I have now looked up the parentage - D.cruentum x D.scabrilingue - the latter accounts for some of the colouring, obviously.
    Another point which occurs to me about these super plants that we have the pleasure of looking at, shown and grown in places like Malaya, Thailand, etc, is that mostly the very large plants are endemic species ; which raises the possibility ( probability ? certainty ?) in my mind that they have been collected from the rain forest, and "all" that the grower/shower has done is keep them healthy and growing. I am not knocking that either - it is easy to let a good plant go out of condition if it is moved from its original home to somewhere else.
    But the position is quite different with this plant because it is a hybrid. No-one found it in the jungle. Someone, or some series of people ( hybridiser/raiser/plant vendor/present owner have nurtured and grown that plant from a tiny seedling to its present state - that is a far greater achievement than collecting a plant from the forest and nailing it to a suitable tree in your garden.
