Tupaia montana. A newly published study provides evidence that this unusual pitcher plant, Nepenthes lowii, derives its nutrition from the droppings of the Mountain Treeshrew. The animals are attracted to the plant's copious nectar secretions, and inevitably leave their scat in the pitchers

A Mountain Treeshrew (Tupaia montana) perched atop a pitcher of Nepenthes lowii, a plant which derives its nutrition from the animal's droppings. Photographed near the summit of Mount Mulu in Sarawak during our 2008 research project there.

Peacock Fern [There are a few different "blue" Selaginella. Typically this is an adaptation to very low light conditions in the understory of the rainforest so put these plants in shady places to see them at their best. Also realize that photos like these are showing reflections of the flash and they don't typically exhibit the fluorescent blue you see in many photos, it's more of a sheen]

Peacock Fern, Selaginella wildenowii, is one of the few plants with blue leaves. It is not a true fern but a "fern ally" in the spikemoss family.
