    I wish only to discuss the topic of this thread here. Any
    issues related to the previous thread have been resolved.

    Now, to answer fc3srx713b:

    Yes, these cuttings are unrooted. By that, I mean that they
    will be freshly cut from the vine. My experience with them (I
    have rooted a few before) is that they are pretty easy, typically
    rooting in a couple of months. However, to be successful, you
    will need to supply appropriate lighting (see my previous remarks
    about this), a photoperiod of about 13 hours, high humidity, and
    temps between about 70 and 90 F.

    Cuttings are three nodes. Leaves are a foot long or so.

    I am looking for other rare, mature Nepenthes -- either unusual
    color forms or stuff like N. klossii, N. mapuluensis, etc. However,
    since few people have these, cash is also considered.

    Finally, yes, it is true that small specimens of N. northiana are
    pretty common. However, as you observed, it is quite
    uncommon to find a mature specimen. In fact, I have never
    seen anyone offer cuttings from a mature plant before. So,
    that is why I am asking for it what I ask. My opinion is that it's
    still a pretty good deal, however.

    BTW, I don't repot very often. Previously, I have only done so
    to provide the plant with more room for its roots. So, I would
    say that this has only happened every two or three years, at
    best.

    I hope that this has answered your questions. Thanks for
    asking!

    LFS will indeed last for years if you use pure water. Oh how I love LFS [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]. Good for everything but food!

    Hi,

    Nope; I don't use LFS for this plant.

    I will probably not make smaller cuttings. I intend to sell
    all the vine that I can.

    I have now replied (I think) to everyone who wrote me about
    this. If you wrote me and have not received a message from
    me, please resend your message. I'm afraid that the number
    of messages I received made it a bit difficult to be as well
    organized as I would prefer.
