    Hi Ludwig,

    this is a photo of my plant you posted above.
    In contrast to it's rarity N. tenuis is quite easy to grow. It grows in both, intermediate and highland conditions but does better with cooler temperatures especially at night.
    I grow my plant in pure sphagnum moos and it grows quite fast in comparison with most other highlanders.

    It is quite difficult to get a plant because there are only a few people who grow this species and the only method to propagate it so far is by cuttings.

    Andreas Wistuba once sold a few cuttings but currently it is not available. Maybe later this year - just keep your eyes open... www.wistuba.com

    Cheers,
    Matthias

    N. tenuis seems easy enough if you can provide typical highland conditions. I grow mine in live LFS in a terra with bright light and high humidity.

    Yeah it is a great little Nepenthes I would compare its growth habits to plants like N. jacquelineae, N. spec. Nov. Sumatra, or N. densiflora.

    Thanks

    Thanks

    I have a question, are all the cultivated N. tenuis from the same plant ie they would all be of the same gender and clone?

    thanks
