    I have a number of three node cuttings of N. northiana available.
    These are from a mature female plant which is many years old
    and which flowers readily. It has done very well in cultivation.

    Here are a couple of pictures of pitchers from the specimen
    I am offering:

    An upper pitcher --



    A lower pitcher --


    If interested, please contact me privately.

    Are these for trade or shipping? Can they take being outside in 90+ degree temps? I live in GA and they would be outside during the summer. Or do they require the coolness? Thanks Very nice pitchers BTW.

    Josh, northiana is a true lowlander. it should do fine in GA during the summer. IIRC the main problem with northiana is that it likes constant conditions, it also likes a bit less light than most neps. but Jeff is going to have to chime in with any details on his particular clone.

    Hi,

    Thanks for all the interest. I've received a lot of requests, and
    will reply to every one.

    In the meantime, I need to clarify a few things. First, this is
    a lowland species, so it will require consistently warm
    conditions. Secondly, yes, N. northiana does like less light
    than some species; I grow mine under fluorescent lighting.
    Finally, please understand that I am not giving these away.
    It took a number of years and some effort to grow this plant,
    and I now have a couple of meters of vine to show for my
    labor. I would like to get this clone out to others, but would
    also like to get some return on my investment. Therefore,
    if you don't have anything desirable to trade, I will take cash.

    Hope that this answers some of the questions. If further info
    is needed, please ask.

    I'll trade you my life [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] ! J/K [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] N. northiana is a tough cookie. Doesn't like inconsistency, hates repotting, prefers something alkaline in its medium, and demands heat and humidity. I wonder how much luck I'll have with it... if I get it that is!

    Actually, I have not found it to be difficult at all. Nor do I
    believe that alkalinity in the growing medium is useful. My
    plant grows well in a perfectly normal (for Nepenthes) acid
    medium. Perhaps it's just that my clone is more tolerant
    for some reason, but if that's the case, it's all the more
    reason for wanting a piece of it....
