    N. something-or-other cuttings for shipping

    I got this from Ludwig a while ago, but it's doing that typical highland nonsense to me where it keeps making smaller leaves. I got it for free, so I'm giving it for free. However, there are 4 stipulations:

    1) you should have at least 100 posts (sorry...don't like people taking my freebies then disappearing forever shortly after)
    2) you have to have paypal
    3) you can't have gotten anything free from me before
    4) you agree to give it's eventual cuttings away to members of TF

    Keep in mind, this plant needs good HL conditions, at least most of the year. It's more than likely maxima x something, I really have no clue.

    Anyway here's a pic:


    I think I've got 2 I can give out. If you get the roots, you'll only have 2 leaves, other wise they should be 3 node cuttings.

    But very reasonable conditions. Good luck finding a good home for it.

    As soon as I opened up this page my daughter pointed out it looked like a heart LOL Bless 2 year olds

    I kinda wish more people would use some form of stipulations on giveaways... There are far too many going to people that just lerk the trade forum (imho) as phission said above.

    Very nicely done Ron. I too like your stipulations, as they really help the community. Ludwig didn't know what hybrid it was? He's a great guy, with amazing plants that he is very generous with. I'm glad some of his stuff went to the right hands . BTW that thorelii x TM is lagging, but still very green and hopefully rooting (I haven't checked so as not to disturb it).

    Anyway, props for your generosity.

    Andrew,
    Agreed. I've given a couple cuttings away to people that had maybe 5 posts....never seen them again (some were over a year ago!). Kinda makes me mad. I'm a big proponent of "freely get, freely give". This is a beautiful plant, and though its an unknown, I could've made some money for it...but ethically, that would hurt.

    Daniel,
    Ludwig had no clue. You can see pictures of the same plant (but MUCH bigger) at http://nepenthes-shop.com/documents/243.html
    The plant that it is (I THINK) is the pic thats 2 pics after the pic of the greenhouse (green pitcher, red peristome, facing the right)
    When I got it, he just gave it to me as "unknown".
    Don't worry about that thorelii x TM...just let it go. As I've said before, I'm in no rush. The eymae hybrid is finally on its way to making a new leaf, but I don't want to disturb it yet. If it isn't growing like gangbusters by the end of next month, I'll dig it up and take a look. I put it in way higher light though so it should be rooted soon.


    To everyone else,
    If you missed this, and you want one, just wait a little bit and they'll be back (according to stipulations at least). Mine grew from a 1 node cutting to 1.5 feet in about 13 months.
