    I will add also that you must not have seen JMatt's cephs. I think he could provide quite an equal trade.

    Just to update everyone about the nep trade. Currently I am not taking anymore offers as I have two people with fantastic offers that I am considering...and it's a hard decision. Thanks everyone for the offers, I'll update when I've come to a decision. Everyone's PM has been responded to as I have viewed everyone's offer.

    ATTENTION EVERYONE!

    After days of consideration, I have finalized a trade with a forum member. This person may say who they are if they like. This is by far the best trade I have ever done both in plant exchanging as well as conduct. Both parties under great consideration have been notified of my decision. Thank you all..

    Thanks for posting the most exciting trade topic in the forums for a while. Although, I ended up in second place, you must have gotten a really great plant to have passed this up, congratulations.


    Anyone else have a N. amp "Giant Red"?

    I offered
    -adult ceph (although growing small pitchers currently)
    -D. ordensis plant grown from seed (approx 2 yrs old)
    -D. prolifera
    -D. falconeri
    And I meant to add D. regia 'Big Easy' but I forgot :-p

    I know this wasn't really a "what will you give me" but it never hurts to try Might I also add, that I had no idea there was something *special* about this plant... I'm just kinda on the hunt for N. amp forms lol

    I'm also curious of what "won"

    I'm glad cprus found what he was looking for though!!

    Yes that is a very nice ceph you have there. Anyone who can grow a ceph out to that size should be proud. I'm not sure what made cprus decide on my plant? All I can tell you is that the plant he chose is just two years old from a single pitcher cutting. It has gained quite a bit of size in two years. There are many growing points. It is very packed and I'm not sure how many there are. The plant is the clone Hummers Giant. All of the dull red coloring on the plant is this past summers growth. It got lots of sun at that time. There is a flush of new growth starting now. It is not loaded with tons of big pitchers now, it hasn't been around long enough. It should look pretty good by spring. The three smaller photos are of the original mother plant that this came from. If he gives it just the right conditions he can expect really big pitchers like that. It's not an easy task, the plant has to be real happy. This time of year is also a great time for taking cuttings. There are plenty of leaves on this plant for that. I think both plants he had to choose from are great! Growing cephs big is an accomplishment anybody should be proud of.
