Absolutely fascinating species!Nepenthes klosiii forms a hood that attracts flying insects with nectar to the peristome. The semi-transparent, translucent backside signals an exit to the insects and makes them fly directly into the pitcher. The same trapping mechanism can otherwise only be observed in the genus in Nepenthes aristolochioides, which forms very similar but smaller pitchers.Nepenthes klossi is endemic to a small area of Irian Jaya (Indonesian part of Papua), where it occurs at 930-2000 m.a.s.l..
The most extreme highlander of the genus. Nepenthes lamii can be found even at 3520 m.a.s.l. (!), where temperatures below freezing can occur. The species is found in New Guinea on Papua.Nepenthes lamii shows red, bulbous pitchers, with violet peristome and lighter inside of the pitcher, the upper pitchers correspond to the lower pitchers, but are slimmer and can be lighter in color. Nepenthes monticola was removed from the species N. lamii in 2011 into its own taxon.Due to the extreme location, often exposed to strong winds, the species is only suitable for advanced growers. The growth of this species is very slow, a larger specimen therefore an honor and award for every keeper.
This still undescribed species is reminiscent of Nepenthes klossii and therefore often circulates provisionally among collectors as Nepenthes "pseudoklossii". Like Nepenthes klosiii it forms a hood that attracts flying insects with nectar to the peristome. The semi-transparent, translucent back signals an exit to the insects and ensures that they fly directly into the pitcher. The same trapping mechanism can otherwise only be observed in the genus in Nepenthes aristolochioides, which forms very similar but smaller pitchers.
