D. chrysolepis:
This species should keep on growing after flowering. Flowers are rather
large for a Drosera. It is self-fertile.

CP Database:
I use Lynx to access the CP Database. When I do a search on "image", the
list of all GIFs available comes up like it should, but they all seem to be
pointing to the same image - "0045.gif", which is the line drawing of
Darlingtonia and 2 Sarracenia. This is the only image I can get no matter
which species I try.

S. leucophylla "white top".
I remember the seed bank was offering some of these seeds last year. Did
anyone germinate these, and are they the anthocyanin-free form?

Paph orchids:
Nobody has yet been successful in propagating paphs in-vitro. This is
why these species are so expensive.

New Nepenthes species:
Is N. ovata the same species as the N. pectinata from Kondo's book
"CP of the World"?. There's photos in the CPN from March/June 1990 issue
that I assume shows some of the new species. On p. 21, "New Nep. sp.
from G. Pangulabao" - is that N. ovata also? The line drawing in the
current CPN looks more like the N. pectinata in the Kondo book that the one
on p. 21 (the pitcher with the wide, brown peristome - the pink pitcher to
the left in the same photo looks like N. rhombicaulis).

On p. 22 of the March/June 1990, is the N. treubiana shown actually
N. longifolia? Is a "real" N. treubiana ever "hipped" as in the

On p. 23, is N. bongso actually N. talangensis?

I have what I believe to be N. x (ventricosa x talangensis). The seeds
were from the seed bank and originally labelled N. x (ventricosa x
sp. Talang). One of my plants has a nice dark red peristome like the
"N. bongso" photo on p. 23. Was Thomas Alt the originator of this hybrid?

What is "N. sp. 'New Species' from G. Pangulubao" on p. 23. The plant
is obviously a seedling. Maybe a N. spectabilis hybrid?
