    N. Khasiana reviews

    Howdy yall, I have a lingering curiousity for N. Khasiana. I'm still collecting all the beginner quick growing species and I came across N. Khasiana as a recommendation from another grower. I checked NATH, but I'd like to know the interpretations from varied environments along with his outdoor growing environment. I still find it completely weird today that 10 years ago I was reading book about strictly terrarium cultivation on the species and here Joel tosses them outside in Southern California...

    So could the other folks chime in with their experience and maybe pics of their plants? If I end up finding it somewhere, I'm just looking to toss it in my closet under CFL's with the rest of my highlanders.

    Thanks in advance guys!

    ive only had kahsiana for like 3 weeks now. its only 3-4 inches across but it hasnt skipped a beat under my care. its growing super fast... its about to unfold its 3rd leaf and is almost done inflating its first pitcher. i grow it on my west facing dorm room window with a CFL that stays on from 8 to about 4(then direct light actually starts to come in). super hardy. very pretty plant. i like it a lot.

    N. khasiana LOVES strong light. It wont develop that strong red color unless you place it under some strong lights. Once it's established, stand back because it will explode with new growth and basals. I currently have 5 basals on mine and it hasn't skipped a beat. I find it to be a very fascinating plant.

    Thats exactly what I've been told. I grow under 150w of CFL light in a 2 sq ft area so it's quite a bit of light in such a small area. So far I like what I'm hearing. I'm trying to propagate a bunch of plants at once to have some trading leverage later on, N. Khasiana will probably be a welcome addition to a lot of collections and it'll be easy for me to grow.

    At 15 bucks, it's a wee bit costly, so I'll see if anybody wants to "loan" me one in exchange for my N. Gentle to babysit until I make a little more room.

    How do you have 5 basals? Thats more offshoots than plant at that point dude.

    I'm telling you man, khasiana in my experience is similar to gracilis or mirabilis...unstoppable lol Basals out the wazoo.

    I dont mean to burst your bubble though but propagating khasiana will restrict you to trades only within your state since it is CITES restricted. Any legal trades out of your state will require a CITES permit from the USDA. If you're looking for quick propagation I'd go with Dews and Pings and do some root/leaf cuttings.

    That only applies if the plant is native to the country it is being shipped in, for the U.S that would mean endangered U.S sarrs.

    The only restrictions on khasiana would be shipping it between COUNTRIES.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Sorry french but your completely mistaken.

    A. CITES is only applicable for wild collected specimens, and they don't grow here and were legally imported long ago.

    B. You can pretty much ship heroin if it's not labeled as such from state to state, though I don't recommend shipping contraband!
    Good growing, Jack

    Duh! Hence the title Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species
    My mistake! Thanks for the correction Exo and justjack. In that case I know what the next auction item will be
