Subject: Thailand

I am using this account since my other was terminated from the newsgroup
a couple of years back. I hope this makes it thru. Let me introduce myself
again. My name is Tom Kahl/Nepenthes Club. I have just returned from a
successful trip to Thailand on Nepenthes and some other stuff. I found
several types I have not seen before. Recorded were five types but not
counting the variations of N. mirabilis and ampullaria there were close
to 10 varieties.
I also set up some public cp displays at two botanical gardens. They are
interested in more material and info. If you would like to participate
please contact me at This is my regular E-mail account.
I was able to bring back on permits about 20 Nepenthes plants. I also
brought back on permits some Amorphopallus tubers but this subject probably
belongs on another newsgroup. The permit process is fairly simple since I
am the only one exporting from Thailand and they recognized me from before
on a previous trip.
While there I ran test on soil and water. Prelinenary results were amazing
since they were growing quite different than the current data in print.
I'll try and post more on this later.
