Tins very interesting species is now in full bloom at the Royal Botanic Garden, Kew, being the second time since its introduction from Singapore; the plant is about sixteen feet high, and has a cylindrical flower-spike thirteen inches long. It is placed at one end of the Orchidaceous house along with a group of other kinds, and suspended from the roof, presenting a truly beautiful collection of vegetable pitchers, such as could scarcely be conceived, unless seen in a living state.
