    Never knew it was lost, however, I'm not a lowland grower, so...
    Amazing Nep though!

    Nifty! I wonder how long before we get some REAL N. thorelii over here?

    The flower stalks on those are crazy tall, I don't think I've seen any other Nepenthes with scapes like that - perhaps in the wild the flowers develop differently than when flowering in cultivation?

    Some people may be confused since there are so many plants being sold with the name "N. thorelii" but are not this plant. I've owned several as well as am now working with some seeds of a supposed N. thorelii but who knows what it will really be if / when they germinate.

    Now... who's gonna get N. klossii started!

    very nice...very very nice.

    @swords: N. klossii is in cultivation...just a very few select peeps have them. who they are, i have no idea, but i know that they do exist.

    edit: took a look. thorellii was not as i initially expected. still, it is a decent plant to look at.

    Here's hoping these don't get poached.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Yeah, I know it is, what I mean is when will someone make it commercial - at least commercial enough that I can get a couple!

    I even pestered one of the people who is growing them now, unfortunately he lives in South America and is not at all interested in selling one of his two plants!
