    Grafting Nepenthes?

    I by no means know anything about grafting. All I know one plant can be attached to another and they both grow.

    Could a Nepenthes be grafted to another species, or even a completely different type of plant?\
    Could grafting a slow Nepenthes to a quick one speed growth?
    What are your thoughts?

    An old question. The answer is no, no, and no. Notice three answers. You forgot to ask whether Nepenthes can be grafted on to their own species, and I took the liberty of answering that too.

    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.

    I saw young grafted plants in Japan, back in the nineties; though I never had a chance to see the pitchers . . .

    Very cool. I graft my own tomato plants; and regardless of what the haters say, the weak heirlooms DO do better on a hybrid rootstock. Zero disease, even when planted in a bed that had verticilium wilt in it.

    I would be interested to see how many people would consider it an "abomination". There are a lot of people who think that grafted plants are evil.

    I wonder how much growth would be affected. And something that would be really cool (as I did with my tomatoes) is to get a good rootstock, and graft multiple scions onto it. Franken-mato! It really is funny to see four different types of fruit coming from one tomato plant, let me tell you. Would be even better with Nepenthes, if such a thing were possible.
