    lol. Yeah, and if you are curious how it would survive in an apartment in Parkville, Missouri, USA I would be more than happy to assist... for research only purposes, of course. LOL. Just kidding. I am really excited to see how this progresses. Keep in touch!

    Thanks for all the comments, it increases my confidence in that I have something quite special here. As far as the origins go, the seed came from a large-pitchered, well-coloured plant that I originally got from Dudley Watts, then committee member of The Carnivorous Plant Society. Nowhere near as dark as this seedling though!

    Still early days as regards taking any orders, but basically what I will do is try and find a central point for both export and import, preferably via a nursery or distributor. This will not be for at least a year so be patient. At this stage it is probably likely that I will do a bulk order to just one person or nursery who can then distribute or re-sell. I will let everyone know when plans are more definite .

    I know this is a blast from the past, but has anyone ever gottin one of these babies (considering he was going to make it available to the US in 2008)?

    If so, how is the color?

    And which nursery did he finally choose to distribute his black cephs?

    Thanks,
