Nepenthes jamban 

Native to the montane forests of Northen Sumatra, (typically 1800 - 2100 metres above sea level) N. jamban  is distinct among Nepenthes in its particularly infundibular (funnel shaped) pitchers and its narrow operculum containing 20 - 30 visible glands concentrated at its apex. (glands not visible in these photos.

Top left is a terrestrial pitcher while top right and bottom are upper pitchers. (a particular Nepenthes species’ pitchers size and shape is usually affected by whether or not a pitcher is close to or on the ground or attatched to the climbing vine and therefore elevated. Lower pitchers tend to be larger, wider and more colourful while upper pitchers are more slender and less colourful, FYI. :))

I picked out this young Nepenthes vogelii x (mira x spathulata) about a year ago when it had a 4in leaf span and one small pitcher. Its leaves have doubled in size since then and it’s starting to develop a new set of lower pitchers. This seedling is as close to a perfect specimen I’ll ever get for the cultural conditions I can provide in AZ, since it produces unusually, prolifically waxy leaves that improve water retention in lower humidity/ high temperature conditions.

N. vogelii is my favorite species in the genus, so I’m glad I was able to find a hybrid seedling willing and able to grow alongside my vanda orchids. The pitchers on this little guy have the “test tube” form and tessellated patterning of N. vogelii, but the coloration of N. mira, which was a very nice surprise! It’ll be years before I get upper pitchers, but fingers crossed that they turn out a nice blend of both parents’ features. Complex hybrids are always a bit of a mystery, which makes them fun to grow!
