    Hi BigBella, my name is Ryan and I am newish to this forum and have been involved in in vitro propagation for a while now. Seeing this thread has sparked some real interest primarily with the N. villosa Tambuyukon variety. I am currently growing many seedlings in vitro of the N. villosa (Mt. kinabalu of course) variety, at this point I have counted maybe thirty or forty that have germinated as of today (2/9/2013). Anyhow, I was wondering if you would be interested in either trading some flasks or seedlings, I love villosa and I in particular would be very interested in the Tambuyukon variety. Well either way, it would be an honor to chat micropropagation with you some time, I have many questions and have enjoyed many of your threads and learned a lot! Thanks for your time.

    Here are a couple of shots of a particularly stubborn Nepenthes species -- finally beginning to multiply in vitro, after a succession of both media and plant growth regulators -- including 6-BAP and TDZ:

    Here is yet another exercise in patience, especially for pokie22; and why those vials at the back of the shelf should be spared for another thirty days . . .

    As I was rummaging through my jars with a magnifying loupe, and determining what needed to be transferred or even tossed, I decided to check upon some "hopeless" vials from last November. To my pleasant surprise, I saw several sprouts (only one of which is visible in this crappy photo), after only one hundred and sixteen days, especially after the lion's share germinated after four weeks . . .

    Next thing, you will be telling me I need beta blockers, yoga classes, and a day off from lab. And I have patience, really I do. I am not as cruel as you portray me BigBella! Every culture is given their Jen process and after that, they simply await their demise. My motto in life: next .

    Of course, if they are cute, furry, and cuddley, there might be some leniency in their sentencing.

    Beta-blockers couldn't hurt -- that, and a little sunlight. . .

    Those wretched UV rays will give me wrinkles. Although, in the summer time I am usually 4-5 shades darker. Where are you big fishies.....

    My planned dalliance with patience is quiet costly - insofar as recapitulating infantilism.....



    And in response to the bit about necessitating sunshine, I heard this song this morning and directly thought of your sagacious words BigBella. Especially those lyrics about "speedos" and "tanned cheeks"....
