    In Wistuba's defense -- and before we feed him, piece-meal to our plants -- it should also be noted that many, if not the majority, of the most desired species of Nepenthes are highland or ultra-highland in origin; are all relatively slow-growing, whether germinated from seed or tissue culture; and that that "microphylla" example at the beginning of this thread, may well represent ten months or more of in vitro growth and re-culturing before it had been planted into compost . . .

    I will say that I don't think he is ripping anyone off because we all now how tiny the plants should be expected to be, and we all pay for them anyway!

    However, I will not be doing so anymore because I am removing myself from that group of people because I do not like receiving plants that size, or plants with weird TC basals/split growth points.

    To each their own, but too small for me!

    It seems pretty hard to TC these lil' guys especially at this age and for their rarity. . . it will take a while for some big growth to come out of these lil' plants.


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