Every page of New Nepenthes Volume 2 is crammed full of exciting new information and stunning imagery!

The work includes more than 750 images! More than 500 have never before been published.

Note: this work is specifically designed to complement the upcoming Redfern books “Nepenthes – The Tropical Pitcher Plants, Volumes 1, 2 and 3”.

The purpose of New Nepenthes Volume 2 is to document all of the new taxa described over the last decade, without any taxonomic changes or revision.

New Nepenthes Volume 2 underpins the treatment of the genus in Nepenthes – The Tropical Pitcher Plants, Volumes 1, 2 and 3.
