    LOL!!!! That is possibly the most ridiculous claim I have ever heard!

    They do offer business class in high school, I took it and got a ninety eight...

    Maybe you should try growing something other than a ventricosa before making claims about your Nepenthes growing prowess...

    OK you know what.. Ill make that a 2-3 yr flowering one.. And with using other tc stats for other plants, that is beyond reasonable.

    Yes, I agree.

    I never said I can grow neps with "prowess". I simply said it is more than feasible that they are being multiplied in large numbers and being released slowly because getting 200+ per plant for 10 pants is better than gettnig 20 for 100 plants. Lerss people to deal with and less work required. So before everyone jumps down my throat about me not growing neps, they should study tc and learn about some of the things its capable of. I bet you;d all have wet your jeans if I would have told you that I could make over 500,000 dionaea from one tiny chunk of a leaf before you knew what you do now.

    It may sound hilarious but so did flying to the moon in the early 1900's... if we work at it by tweaking the genes and adding hormonal structures from a plant that can flower in 1 year then ya.. it most certainly is possible.


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

    a 2-3 year old edwardsiana would be about 1" in diameter. How do you turn that into a several feet wide several meter tall plant?

    We are talking about current technology. I am sure it might be possible in 60 years though with our current advancements in gene technology.
