    Calling all N. khasiana

    I havent seen much talk about it or many pictures around here, so if you have a N. khasiana I would love to see what you have and see what I can expect out of mine in terms of size and growth. It seems to love the lighting seeing as it's oozing with nectar and the underside of the lid is colored with a wonderful red stripe. It's very promising!

    Thanks!










    EDIT: Just found this coming up. Didnt think it was possible for such young plants to basal so early, anyone have experience with basals? When is it safe to separate them from the mother?

    I love this plant. It's ridiculous how expensive some places are selling this for. From what I've read it grows easily and it's been around forever.

    I havent heard anything it being around for a long time but it is a very easy grower, at least for me. I get about 2-4 pitchers a month from it. I love this plant, is there anyone else out here that has one of these

    I know D_muscipula HAD one. It died I think.

    You should wait until the basal is as large as a length cutting would be. About 3 nodes.

    Thanks Jeff! Maybe we should do this in the chatbox :P lol jk
    Thanks for the info, do you get better chances of rooting the more you let the basal develop?
    Appreciate the input!

    khasiana used to be as readily available as say N. ventricosa or ventrata. Heck, it was WAY more common than either of those two. Joel aka N.A.T.H., had a HUGE, bush-of-a-khasiana. Check out his site nepenthesaroundthehouse.com

    Ive been wanting to get one, but not $40 bad. Id much prefer a jacquelineae.

    Definately. But remember, the basals drain the energy of the main vine and vice versa.

    And you're welcome.

    Hi
    Is this plant a N. khasiana?
    I receive seeds of N. khasiana a long time ago and this is the one.

    Thanks
