    hmm a giant nepenthes that had really hairy leaves and it has really prominent fangs like hamata. It's lid would descend and the pitchers would slowly shrink and squeeze the insects tighter like a flytrap. And it has stones in it's pitchers deposited their by birds that like to nest in the plants leaves and the stones grind up the more squishy insects like catipillars into a nice creamy paste that will later be found to be a powerful anti wrinkle cream, that doesn't have to be applied to the face it can be taken orally. And men and women all over the world will use it as spread on their toast bagels etc.
    really random, so what?

    Oh, I got another one! A vft with hard teeth that have barbs on the end. The teeth shoot out on thin strings and spear flies and other insects. They always keep the teeth out on their strings flailing around in the wind unless it has caught something. Lol, im demented.

    Nope. There was nothing. There may be some secret in the jungles of PNG, but more than likely not. Tim hasn't posted since that thread. I guess I pissed him off when I posted him E-mails.

    BUT that's not what this thread is about :P You now know as much as I or anyone else does.

    My ideal: A nepenthes that tolerates low humidy, low light, and is happy right at 70F, no temp drops. But the real feature would be it's growth habit: It would have that of a VFT: Stay rosette, not grow taller, no vine, etc.; just become a bigger rosette with age that never grows higher.

    A vacuum sarracenia that sucks down any bug that lands on the rim. No more watching that hornet flirt with disaster only to take flight and go on its merry way. It lands, the VAWOOOP! Gone.

    I'm going to second the cold tolerate nepenthes idea. How about a nepenthes that stays fairly compact, has large pitchers that do not die out for a very long time, can live a little further inside of the room than right at the windowsill and has the aforementioned blue (or maybe a dark purpleish tint)?

    Or a black VFT (or nep, or sarr or...) nice and sinister looking.

    To the idea of the 4 foot Franken-capensis idea-would it reproduce as easily as normal capes do? I don't know if we want that sucker running rampant through our collections.
