    I have always relied on the kindess of strangers

    Hello everyone

    Because of a long, complicated story, I had to leave my nepenthes in the care of someone else for almost a year. Now that I have returned, I find all are gone. dead as the proverbial doorknob. If anyone has any cuttings to spare, I would of course pay S&H and be forever indebted to you. I have successfully grown highland and lowland varieties.

    Thank you thank you thank you.

    Nicole

    As and added thank you, I can promise that faeries will come and tickle your nose while you sleep.

    She's got quite a bit of history here.. It's always rude for noobs to ask for free plants.
    This is simply a shame. Sorry to hear it Nikki.
    I wish I had something that needed cutting. Just a few upcoming basals here and there..
    I'll definitely keep you in mind when the time comes to separate them.

    I wish you best of luck rebuilding your collection. I hope you didn't have too many valuable ones.

    It is also rude to accuse someone of rudeness when you joined the forum 5 days ago,
    and Nikki joined 7 years ago..perhaps you don't know the dynamics of the forum
    and Nikki's relationship to it?

    Very sorry to hear about this! I have nothing much coming up in the highland chamber but one of the Ampullarias is cloning itself quite rapidly and I am attempting at rooting one of the small sub-surface viners in case you're interested. I'm not sure if it will be ready very soon though. . . several other basals on some other lowland hybrids coming up as well. Do you have a list of some Nepenthes that you yearn to recover?


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

    I just cut some of my Nepenthes and may be able to send you some in a little while. Follow up with me in a month or so (I have a limited supply of those and am rooting some for friends. I would send cuttings now but want to make sure I have enough which take root). If you want an unrooted cutting. I could probably send you something. Might be a more common variety like N. alata.
