    What everybody seems to forget is the fact that Nepenthes
    is dioceous - having male and female plants. Would a male
    growing point on a female vine (with leaves) produce male
    or female flowers? Don't forget the sex of the flowers is
    controlled by hormones like GA, IAA and the illucid florigen ...
    they are produced by the leaves, so would a small male
    cutting on a large female vine produce female flowers because
    of the abundance of female hormones in the mixed system?
    Maybe a nice trick to get that expensive one produce pollen?

    That wouldn't have anything to do with it. Plants like Kiwi's are also diocious, and they are all grafted, otherwise the farmer doesn't know what percentage his has. The auxins are obviously not produced in the roots.

    I used this as a reference:
    http://www.wye.ic.ac.uk/plant_science/pd.html

    I got carried away by my florigen experiments.

    In very simple terms grafting is the process of joining on plant onto another to make one plant. The process is used for many purposes such as creating a fruit tree that produces more than one type of fruit.

    I was going through Rob's site and I found this. Has anyone else read it? It's by Cliff Dodd.

    Grafting is something I only attempted once and with only a 1 in 4 success rate with 4 plants. I am simply not good at grafting, but I do plan to try it again in the future. I think it is useful to grow plants that live on exotic substrates like N. rajah or northiana onto a vigorous root system of say N. x mixta. [/QUOTE]

    Seems like a good reason to graft. But instead of trying a Whip and Tongue Graft, what about a bud graft. Graft a dormant node onto an old stem and initiate it some how. You might even be able to graft a newly initiated node onto and old stem.
