    The truncatas at the orchid shop are large heavy vines but they're also probably 20+ years old too. IME truncata was a very slow grower compared to many others.

    They probably say that so people don't complain. The customer support at those places has to pay for customers' improper care-I think, at least.

    This is no wisdom though! LOL, so many cps are killed each year. Like the time my mother wanted to give "good" soil for my first venus flytrap. It didn't last 3 days.

    Not mine, but here's a picture I found on Google.



    So yes, it does produce a climbing stem. However, N. truncata probably produces a scrambling vine in the wild. Also, it technically wouldn't make sense if N. truncata didn't produce a vine.
