    its rare cause it isnt really in cultivation......lil birdy told me atleast one lab currently has it in TC and it may become more available in the not so distant future if everything goes well............

    My understanding is that it is only found in a pretty secluded area on Mt. Kinabalu, and that area is restricted to anyone without a permit of entry. A few people can get a permit to take photographs but only one group has ever gotten the permit to obtain seed or cuttings or what have you. Unfortunately, they decided to stagnate their Nepenthes program. So it's not available. Instead they just have two mature Edwardsiana plants chilling in their green house, unavailable to the general public. I think I heard they also have N. klossi as well.

    Either way I find that a serious crime against nature for them to not produce seed of those plants and or cuttings. Who knows how many have been poached by obsessive Nepenthes fanatics.

    There are a few in the US, whether they were poached or legit, they exist, and rumors have been going around that TC may be available someday soon.

    Either way, they are my favorite plant in the world, and intend to buy one as soon as they become available, regardless of price.

    N.klossi looks like a N. aristolochioides hybrid.

    Yeah, but the only other nep in the area is a mini form of maxima. It's not any more closely related than any other nep. It is just convergent evolution.

    Edwardsiana is cool... but why not get a macrophylla? They're supposed to actually get bigger than eddies.
