I grow it side by side with my nepenthes. Maintenance of the plant is same as nepenthes.

for the malaysia peninsular just one variety

M.tuberosa 'armata'

for the sarawak 3 possibility

M.tuberosa 'armata' ; M.tuberosa 'bracteata' ; M.tuberosa 'apoensis'

in sarawak , near what town ?

have you a macro to the clypeoli and alveoli ( on the stem ) ?

but you have reason on the specie , in this region you have just tuberosa , you told me
irian jaya or papua new guinea it would not have been the same thing

Interesting to know that they have so much variety.
Unfortunately no macro on the clypeoli and alveoli for the time being.
Do you have macro on your side which can be used as reference?

hi jeff,

i would appreciate too on the macro shots references that you could provide.....tioman island is part of peninsula malaysia however its flora and fauna always has something that is distinct from the mainland.

How big is it when it started flowering?
Mine also flowering and few types of ants moved in but they didn't stay long. Rental too high I guess

if you start from seeds , 3- 4 years are necessary to have flower then drupe ( seeds inside)

just some ant are infeoded to the ant plant also if their species is not infeoded at these plants they did'nt stay along here in europe it is particulary true
