Welcome to Nepenthes suratensis

This N. suratensis Scratchpad is intended to be of benefit to research studies and conservation of the species. Content will be added as it becomes available.

The “Kanchanadit” colony is the only known remaining '100% genetically pure' colony of Nepenthes suratensis plants in the world! The natural habitat of these plants is now severely limited and has been significantly damaged due to agricultural development. Very few natural areas are thought to remain which would allow this species to self-propagate in large enough numbers and with a enough genetic diversity to allow for sustainable species persistence. Of extreme importance, current land development plans for this last known site call for a major construction project that will seriously imperil the continued existence of this species.
