    Here are a couple of updates on some vials from this morning. New growth can be seen at the leaf axils . . .

    Almost missed this post amongst the auction threads. Very cool BB. . . really hope this species will be able to get a better grip in cultivation.


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

    OMG BigB! Man!! You are so lucky to be able to grow this in vitro. Even BE and wistuba had issues with it in vitro. Congratulations.

    Thanks . . .

    It has taken some careful futzing around -- to ensure that I didn't kill any of those young plants on Jello. So far, so good . . .

    Here are a few Nepenthes plants, now unde ex vitro conditions, in order for them to produce roots. The genus can be notoriously slow to do so, under sterile conditions; that is, without doing them, into the next county, with auxins . . .

    Here is a late Summer update on a few of the cultures -- three of which were seed-grown in origin; and the other, the image on the upper left, was taken from meristematic tissue, from an older compost-potted plant (that one took some doing and a liberal amount of expletive-spewing, sufficient to warrant performance of the Roman Rights) . . .
