    Eddy for sale

    While I suspect most of the hard-core Nep-philes are already following this sale - for those who are unaware - Eddy sale. There are also some nice pics of mature Eddy pitchers...

    Wow!!! I couldn't justify paying that much for one, but I can certainly understand someone with the means and desire to own one paying that much.

    I hope it is a nursery who gets it. One with vast TC knowledge.

    Has anyone successfully T/C'd Nepenthes plants? I'm probably behind the times but I thought Neps had some sort of symbiont within that precluded T/C from any material outside seeds... Is this not accurate?

    @RL: believe it or not, there are a FEW labs that were successful in TC'ing neps.
    from such a lab's website:

    "Nepenthes - the Tropical Pitcher Plants

    New species of Nepenthes are being described on a somewhat regular basis as more remote areas of their range in southeast Asia are explored. Tissue culture is typically from seed, but it is also possible to propagate plants by meristem culture. This challenging technique requires a fair amount of plant material because contamination rates are high. Our lab uses either a liquid media on a rotator for small meristems (~2 mm in size) or solid media for larger shoots as described below.

    Song-Jun, Z., C. Zhi-Lin, and D. Jun. 2003. Tissue culture and rapid propagation of Nepenthes x hybridus cv. Dyeriana. Plant Physiology Communications. 39:479.

    shows it can be done......but i see they have only tried it on easy to grow robust plants.....wouldnt make a blanket statement saying it works for all till alot more experimenting is done......also says yah need alot of plant material which yah dont have with this eddy......a few neps are known to keel over if yah chop the top with no side growth as they arent to prone to erupting the nodes.....i sure in the hell would not be chopping up that plant and risking loosing it if im dropping a grand on it, atleast not till i have a ton more growth to play with....

    So wistuba TC'ed his eddy's from seed? I don't pretend to be an expert in this area. I just assumed Dr. Wistuba cloned his from plant material and not seed.
