I've just added a frequently requested feature to the Nepenthes Interactive Guide: the ability to filter to show only species which grow in a particular location.

Sort and filter Nepenthes species by location

First of all, a big thank you to all the growers who’ve gotten in touch about The Nepenthes Interactive Guide. The feedback’s been great, and it’s given me plenty of ideas for how to develop it further.

I’ve just added the most frequently requested feature: the ability to filter the distribution chart to show only species which grow in a particular location. To get started, just hit the ‘Enable Region Control’ button and tick the boxes of the locations you’re interested in. You can choose multiple locations at once. Hit ‘Go’, and the chart will be filtered and sorted based on your chosen configuration. Click here to try it out.

The elevational distribution chart filtered to show only Nepenthes which grow in Borneo, sorted highland to lowland.

If you like the Nepenthes Interactive Guide, please consider sharing it on Facebook, Twitter, or your preferred growers forum. It’s a free tool, built to benefit everyone with an interest in Nepenthes - the more people it helps, the better. If you’d like to be notified of future updates to the tool, you might want to sign up to my mailing list - see the widget on the right hand side.

If you encounter any bugs or have any questions, please get in touch via email or post a comment below.

Thanks for reading!

Update, 24th September 2017: I’ve upgraded the Nepenthes calculator so that it can be used to visualise the altitudinal distribution of a single species, as opposed to just hybrids. Several people have told me that they like using the calculator for this purpose, so rather than forcing a visualisation by entering N. lowii x N. lowii, for example, you can now just select one species and see it plotted on the chart. Enjoy!
