    Unhappy

    I know theres quite a few species and all of u have limited space, but i know for a fact that some arnt in cultivation. i was wondering: wich ones?



    Also, out of curiosity,i was wondering if anyone had any of these threatened species, or even if they are found in cultivation (somewhat related to first question)

    N. bellii (endangerd)

    N. adnata

    N. macrophylla

    N. Mikei

    N. merrilliana (apperently one of the largest)

    N. Mira (recently described)

    N. talangensis

    Edit: one more i forgot
    that makes no logic

    In answer to your 1st question:

    The only species that I can think of off the top of my head are N. edwardsiana and another one, klossii. They are both grown by a couple of people but not sold commercially by anyone I know of.

    In answer to your 2nd question:

    All of those species I have recently seen for sale, although I can't remember whether or not I've seen adnata.

    Hope this answers your question.

    From that list, I think all of them are available. I have macrophyla, mikeii, and mira. I'm not sure there's anywhere you can get a N. kampotiana, either, though they are in cultivation.

    N. tenuis is in cultivation. Check out Joachim Danz' website.

    Hi,
    cant say, much about what species are or are not in cultivation,
    but have some questions:
    what is kampotiana?
    and what is neoguineensis? from new guinea?
    N. treaubiana seems like a rather hardy plants from the photos and there were plenty of seed werent there? how come it still has not entered into cultivation?
    How about the species called..."mapuluensis" (if I am not wrong) a low-intermediate grower, from C. Clarke's Nepenthes of Borneo book ...it looks a bit like a northiana.
    Thanks

    Finch, all the species you listed are commercially available. Practically all *known* species of Nepenthes (more than 100) are in cultivation. Somewhere. The only ones I can think of which might not be in cultivation are N. angasanensis, N. paniculata and N. treubiana.
