    I've finally gotten off my duff and propagated some of my plants, and had great success (100%) with the cuttings. I have the following well-rooted cuttings for trade:

    Nepenthes
    N. sanguinea "Dark Red" - How anything else could be called "sanguinea", i don't know. Bloody amazing. (pun intended)

    Some pics from the parent:


    Another photo, showing the pitcher inner color and spotting, and the red coloration of the leaf veins in full sun.

    This does great with bright light, putting out lots of large pitchers that hold on the plant for reasonably long times, even in ambient Boston indoor temperature and humidity. I have kept Mr. Sanguine on my windowsill since i got it, and it has been through drought and flood with flying colors.

    N. aristolochioides x thorelii AKA "Sarcophagus plant"

    That's the best way i've heard the developing pitchers described. This puts out lots of pitchers that are a bit bigger than aristos, but of a similar coloration and shape.

    The parent plant last summer (with 17 open pitchers):


    Closeup pitcher:


    This one also grows pretty fast. (I would say it has a significant amount of "hybrid vigor." Also another windowsill grower, liking bright light and tolerating wide humidity conditions.

    N. gracilis 'Dusky'

    A moderately colored gracilis (mostly the ground pitchers). Grows fast like all gracilis, with a tendency to fork and send up multiple shoots. If you want a plant to fill up any size terrarium, but which is easy to prune back and propagate, give gracilis a try.

    Here's a new and not very colorful pitcher on a cutting which was rooted (and growing) in water:


    Gracilis develops a very healthy-sized root system. For example:


    The plant available is the one in the photos.

    Drosera
    D. multifida 'Extrema' - what would happen if you cut off a whole bunch of D. binata fronds and glued them end to end, on all the forks. Makes a wonderful sticky mess of a plant.

    D. binata "small red form" - As described in The Savage Garden (this was propagated from a plant from California Carnivores). I'm still not sure what distinguishes it from the other binata complex "species", but it is very plastic in form and habit according to conditions, and now i have one that seems "small" only in comparison to D. dichotoma 'Giant'.

    And i have some normal D. binata, of course. Here's a photo of both (with a small specimen of "small red"):


    I have some other random plants (utrics, drosera, etc) i can include in a trade.

    Want
    I'm looking primarily for Nepenthes species (not hybrids), as well as woolly sundews, noteworthy VFT forms, and less common utrics. Dormancy doesn't work out so well for some of my plants, so it's mostly tropicals on my list. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    I'm willing to do a many-for-one trade if someone has something really neat-O.

    Especially desired:
    N. veitchii
    N. khasiana
    OtherN. albomarginata forms (I already have purple)
    N. truncata (lowland)
    N. campanulata
    D. schizandra
    D. petiolaris
    D. falconerii


    I'm also interested in Pitayha (Dragon Fruit), Vanilla planifolia, and other interesting exotic fruits and spices.
    There's no 'a' in perlite.

    I wish I had what was on your wish list, but I don't. However, would you be willing to part with a D. binata "Multifida Extrema" for anything on MY grow list?

    Nice pics of nice plants.
    PM'ed you.
    All proofs inevitably lead to propositions that have no proof. All things are known because we want to believe in them.

    My Growlist updated with available trades and pictures - PM if interested
