    Glad that you like the image, Suzanne.

    Sorry about the metric units troubling you; I use them because
    the rest of the world does, and I want to be able to communicate
    clearly with the broadest possible range of people.

    Here are handy facts to aid you in converting:
    10 cm = 4 inches, or 2.5 cm per inch (approximately).
    0C = 32F, and one degree of temperature Celsius = 1.8
    degree of temperature Fahrenheit.

    ummm... don't you see the tendril in the picture? do you even know what a tendril is? cause there is a tendril in that pic. *Scoffs* and you call yourself the nepenthes expert?

    P.S.-Nepenthes ventrincosa does produce upper pitchers

    from your signature matti , i don't think you are an expert of neps , also if you were born in 1990 and you been growing them for 7 years its hard to believe that you grew them since you were 5 years old . upper and lower pitcher both have tendrils , I don't think you should you shoudl think again .

    Before this gets out of hand I want to say a few things.

    NO ONE IS AN EXPERT ON NEPENTHES I don't care who you are you are not an expert on the cultivation of Nepenthes. I should change my title. I just specialise in Ultrahighland genera. There is alot more to be learned about these plants.

    Secondly, matti no offense but you need to brush up alot on your Nepenthes vocabulary.

    BTW, Jeff's plant looks fine to me. It's not sick just wet with nectar secretions like he said in his replies.

    I also think your signature is abit prounounced. Do you know Phill Mann? If you don't I think you should get to know him. He's one of the finest people in Austrialia that knows much about Nepenthes. His webpage is http://www.scarnivores.com

    Please don't take this the way in which I am yelling at you either.

    Maybe Jeff could clone this specimen and get the "sickly and tendril-less" form into wide cultivation. The name will sell it by itself. Someone else could introduce the "it's turned black and covered with fungus" clone and then a third popular clone could be the, "I stopped watering months ago and it's a uniform brown color" form.

    Regards,

    Joe
