Up for auction today is a Nepenthes tobaica.
Ok...I added a very crappy photo. I didn't get to photograph it outside in the light so this will have to do for now. This plant is actually two stems coming out of the pot with one stem divided into 2 vines. So it has 3 vines. See...it's almost as wide as my fridge! I added a Diet Dr Pepper for a size comparison. I'll try to get a better pic but you'll get the idea with this one. Nice plant...I should have kept it. hehe
Nepenthes tobaica is a terrestrial grower preferring exposed areas, even roadside embankments. It is a rapid grower with scrambling, climbing vines. You can prune it to congrol its growth--or let it go wild! You will have lots of cutting material.
It has been called a "highland gracilis" due to similar habitat preferences but it has a wide temperature tolerance. Grows well in moist, but well-drained soils.
It is rated "very easy" for cultivation; bright to full light, grows well in chambers as an intermediate.
