    Me too!!!! There is an ebay seller using that pic to sell his albo, but I doubt it is the real thing. Anyone know for sure?

    This isn't really applicable right at this moment, but my black albo is starting to outgrow the terrarium, and I'll probably take cuttings soon. If only it would make a basal shoot!!! Do albos make shoots regularly? This is my only one.

    Try trimming the growth point without cutting the stem. That should do it. After that, send me a pm, and we'll work something out [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] .

    Albomarginata is one of those species, like eymae, that is very reluctant to form basal shoots. I've a 2 metre vine of albomarginata var rubra that has lateral shoots but no basals. Different forms may behave differently.

    One note about trimming Nepenthes. My advice is don't do it unless there is a second growth point lower on the vine, either a lateral or basal shoot. It is not unknown for a Nepenthes with a single growth point to die when that growth point is removed.

    Yup, I have no laterals or basals, but when I do, I'll chop up the vine for cuttings. My tank with this plant is at work, and I can't exactly hold a 2-meter vine! LOL! Here's a pic from when it was younger (I don't have any newer pics):
