    I would like to second wire mans dibs if you ever have more than one cutting to trade.
    Lets hope this is a female...


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    Sending you a PM. I don't care about the size, as long as it's N. burkei.

    Awesome plant! A couple of questions...

    1. How old does a nep need to be before it will flower?
    2. How can you tell the sex of the plant?
    Indeed. Most indeededly. Phillip J. Frye

    true story...especially for neps....round flowers indicate that the plant is male, oval like flowers indicate that the plant is female (think shape of seedpods).

    That is one gorgeous pitcher. So if I understand correctly, there are several BE clones of burkeii out there, and this is just one of them? In any case, more pics please!

    Depends so much on the specific plant and conditions. General idea is highlanders are around 5-ish years until mature...often more, lowlanders are less. "Mature" does not mean "will produce flowers." I've had a maxima for around 15 years that still hasn't flowered.

    HERE is a nice page illustrating the difference.
