On Borneo there can be found over 30 of the (up to now) 82 species known world wide.
We can show only a selection of them, those species we have seen and photographed.
In lack of any better systematical order the plants are grouped in lowland
and highland species. Lowland species usually can be found in wide areas and are only
missing on high mountains whereas highland species have a mostly patchy distribution
in highlands. They often are endemic on single a single high mountains
Though some Nepenthes species are quite common within their distribution range,
many others are seriously endangered species. All species of the genus Nepenthes are protected
by CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora).
It is illegal to collect them from their natural habitats and to export or trade
them without permission. Despite this collectors still hunt for rare species,
variations or hybrids.
For this reason we will definitely not trade any plants nor will we tell the
places we found them to anybody. For the plants sake we hope for your understanding.
We are sorry we can use only the scientific plant names on this site.
This is because there are simply no common names with any relevance for
Nepenthes pitcher plants. They are simply too exotic and too new to the
english speaking people for popular names to develop.
In the "short data" box on each species page you can also find synonyms
for each species, which means scientific names that have been used in literature
for the refered species but are for different reasons no longer valid.
