    Great little guys. Do you grow them in a greenhouse or terrarium? Where is this one native? I don't believe I've ever seen on that small. Thanks for sharing and welcome.

    It is in a Terrarium with about 15 more companions, all lowland type Nepenthes, and 10+ Nepenthes (Intermediate & Highland) are on my windowsill.

    This one has location information luckily, as quoted in the name, Kuching Malaysia.

    Those plants always look so interesting. We have tried to grow them, but something always happens. The last two we had, we put outside during a light rain storm so they could get some good water and our dogs ate one of the plants (pot and all) and un-potted the other to chew its pot. We have one left. The poor, little, sad thing that it is. LOL. Yours are very nicely grown.

    Cheers,

    Your dogs ate the pot? are you not feeding them? Actually, I don't know why I am surprised, I keep finding one of my cats rubbing herself all over one of my phals. I had no idea that orchids could also have the catnip and "dognip" effect!

    Yeah, well, I had a dog once that ate my ENTIRE James Harriot book collection-including the one book on tape I had. *sigh* (plus I got to pay $45 to call the vet poison hotline to find out that wood putty is NOT toxic).

    He was a great dog-just a little separation anxiety in those first few years. LOL
