This team was affected by a really high death rate. Only the leader was able to keep 2/3 of plants healthy. Read about the results of the experiment, descriptions of the places where the plants were grown, substrates used and the difficulties caused by the dormancy of plants, etc.

Right at the beginning of the third episode of the story from the journey through Borneo the author mentions a locality, where it is possible to find seven Nepenthes species. Also visit to a cave colonized by 7 million bats was definitely an unusual experience. During the next three-day trip the author is going to climb one thousand meters higher, find a few carnivorous species and meet wild wasps and numbers of hungry leeches.
What happened after arriving at the Hot-Springs – an oasis in the middle of the forest – to be continued…

The strong resemblance between U. bremii and U. minor was probably the main reason of their constant mistaken identity. It possibly leads to an actual rediscovery of U. bremii populations on locations where it was considered to have disappeared.
