Get familiar with the work of Chien C. Lee

He’s a great photographer of Nepenthes species in their native habitats, but he’s also a world renown botanist whose epic discoveries include N. glandulifera, N. platychila, and the infamous N. diabolica. Those are some phenomenal discoveries. 

And it’s here at Cross Exotics we’d like to highlight Chien’s contributions to the preservation of the Nepenthes species in their native habitats with his stunning wilderness photography.

Check out this shot of Nepenthes madagascariensis:

And of course, Nepenthes veitchii:

These are really amazing images. And you can check out more of his great work at

Chien Lee continues to be a leader and activist for the Nepenthes species and a great friend to all of us here.
