    you are all very greedy I wish I could get a constant 50% humidity during the non-monsoon months here in Bangalore! Then maybe even I would be able to grow vandas!

    Thanks everyone again for viewing.

    Peter, there are stenophylla, reinwardtiana, some variety forms of veitchii, hybrids reinwardtiana x stenophylla, stenophylla x veitchii.

    From the village there are 2 trials leading to 2 main nepenthes sites:
    1/ Batu Buli, about 1.5 days walk and camp a night in the jungle, there are lowii, hurrelliana, chaniana and tree climbing type veitchii. Batu Buli is a mountain pass where every trekker must pass through to get to Batu Lawi ( also a nepenthes and orchids haven ). Batu Lawi will take 2 days walk-one way.
    2/ Mt Murud will also take about 2 days walking distance. The main attraction was lowii and hurrelliana which grows in greater number, others were tentaculata, murudensis, muluensis, and hybrids.
