    I am open to offers but am most interested in the following:

    N. spectabilis x aristolochioides or other nep with that shape/color pitcher
    species pings
    asian ghost orchids (Chiloschista)

    if i were to up my trade request highter I would'nt turn down a korean hornbeam (small), a staghorn fern (no bigger than a 4" plaque), helis, species sarr purpuras that are not on my growlist, some of the smaller intermeadite to cool neps not on my grow list

    This clone appears to be reluctant to pitcher. Any idea why?

    Maybe because of it's genetic makeup..Splendiana has LL genes in it..mine have rooted well and continually make new leaves. I think their lack of pitchering has to do with humidity. They have been moved to a slightly cooler but more humid area in the last two weeks. It maybe a hard reach to find the happy medium for them. If the cross has been remade more than once, each strain of clone out there may have different prefernces for HL vs LL conditions.
    Hopefully that helps shed some light on your question, other than that..beats me.

    My splendiana pitchers regularly in hl and ll conditions. I bet it's a humidity or just transplant trim shock. Send one here and we will find out? :-)

    Of my two girls half have been claimed
    One is traded but the other remains
    She's pretty and green and waiting for you
    To make the right offer on a trade that I'll do
    My wish for a staghorn fern has been met
    But plenty of others are on my list yet
    So look on your racks and see what is spare
    And soon you will be giving rack space to her

    Could also be too low light (that my guess). Neps need a lot of light to pitcher well. But I don't know your growing conditions. Humidity is basically a non-issue for most of my neps, which grow and pitcher well in 30-40% humidity range. But I give them lots of good florescent light

    Not really have anything interesting to trade, but when I was 10 my Splendiana X ventricosa pitchered profusely...maybe it has to do with humidity?


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com
