    Nepenthes Giveaway

    Hi Terraforums.

    I purchased a plant not too long ago and when I received it, it turned out to be a bizarre tissue cultured, three - headed monster. Luckily, this plant seems to be pretty vigorous and after I immediately divided the three heads, I kept the largest growing stem for myself (which was attached to the largest root mass). The other two growing stems I clipped off and both of them had a somewhat notable bit of root still attached. After potting them and acclimating them I have noticed new and notable growth from both of them, so I am assuming that whatever root I left has been growing and producing side shoots.

    Regardless, up for give away are two healthy, apparently growing Nepenthes glandulifera x boschiana.

    Largest pitcher that I have (from the plant that I am keeping).



    The two plants we are talking about.



    Growing, happily and hairily!



    So!

    Shipping is on me.

    Two winners will be decided.

    One that comes up with the most eloquent, beautiful and satisfying description of why they like the two parents of this cross.

    And one that writes the best haiku about why I should give them this plant.

    You can shoot for both!

    Cheers.

    Sweet Words guys! Just a couple things:

    The poems have to be legit haiku's to qualify. And nobody's done just a description of the two parents and why they are awesome!
