    Very nice, indeed. I've tried clones from Wistuba and BE. The BE clone has been a good grower in my conditions, while I killed the Wistuba plant. Of course, two plants don't indicate any merits of one over the other. Would like to try the CZ plant...

    The only reason I've never been crazy on getting one is because of how much they have costed in the past. They are finally coming down a bit. I'd have to build the right set up and invest in some lighting and maybe a heater, but I live in Alaska, so night time temps will be no problem.

    Dexenthes, that's kinda funny that you would need a heater for highlanders, especially for villosa, when most people are having cooling issues with the plant. But with you living in Alaska, you should definitely give this plant a go, whenever you get a chance to. You should have no problem providing the necessary cooling. We live in hardiness zone 3, and i have been able to cool mine down sufficiently at night for some decent growth over the last year or so. Good luck with your (hopefully soon) future villosa.

    Just an update on my N. villosa.

    This plant now has a wingspan of seven inches, leaf tip to leaf tip.

    I posted five new pics today.
