Nepenthes tentaculata is very common pitcher plant in the highland of Borneo where the altitude is above 3,000 feet from sea level. However, the one which I found is at the altitude around 2,000 feet. It is growing together with Sphagnum moss.

Very very nice pics. We have some of that moss here in the White Mountains of New hampshire, USA. Close to 4,000 feet up.
