    Hi everybody,

    I've been trying to get hold of a second clone of nepenthes masoalensis for years, without success (I have had one from Germany for quite a time now)

    Well, I have seedlings of nep aristolochioides, macrophylla, villosa, rajah etc. (NOT GROWN IN TC, from seeds onto peat!) to swop with anyone growing nep masoalensis...

    Thanks in advance,

    Regards from CH

    I don't think we can send plants to Switzerland without all the documents, can we? (not that I have N. masoalensis)

    Well, If I were adept at highlanders and had a spare Nepenthes masoalensis that was not Wistuba's clone, I certainly would get the documents to get seedlings of those plants, lol.
    Does straight peat work wonders for germination for you, Olivier?

    Cheers,

    Joe

    Hi again,

    With fresh seeds, the mixture I use is 3/4 peat 1/4 quartzsand (3-4 mm diametre). Drainage is OK this way, and the germination rate approx. 60% with temps ranging 18-28C.

    Before 9 / 11 (Pinochet's nasty coup & WTC), it used to be far easier to swap seedlings to and from the States. It remains fairly easy to do so within Europe.

    no problems with Swiss customs as long as there's a phytosanitary permit shipped along. That's all we need here.

    Actually, I've heard it's been harder shipping plants to the USA lately...

    Well

    Apa boleh buat ?

    Cheers,

    OL

    Sorry Alvin,

    I didn't know that rule and thus will keep shut up. For sure I understand your reasons and will respect them!

    Cheers,

    And Olivier, if the authorities find out, you could have your plants confiscated and a hefty fine. That also gos for the person you are trading with. Its illegal and thats that. You will also need CITES permits especially for N. rajah.
    Best Regards
