    Well there's purists and there's experimentors. I would probably try a frankenstein Nepenthes if someone actually ends up getting it to work and makes a marketable grafted nep. At the least it would be a total curiosity! But my wonder would be that you couldn't prune the plant because the grafted ends would end up dissapearing after a few years, so I guess this would really be a project for a greenhouse owner with plenty of space.

    Jim,

    The listserv isn't a website but an email news letter thing. If you like I'll post the question and copy any answers I recieve here.

    As for why anyone would graft a Nep, the only real advantage I could see would be to have male and female flowers on the "same" plant.

    Well,
    Grafting plants gives me a feel of like accomplishment, and the results can be spectaculuar soemtimes... Cacti look escpecially interesting... and well it would just give me this tingly mad scientist feel inside... but other than that it has no significance to graft nepenthes... other than the host nep, woudl be quite odd looking and would make a person like me feel all accomplished... but i just got up.. as you probably think i am drunk with my kinda slurred typing... but i wouldnt mind seing the results to the list server results and stuff... hopw woudl i sign up ot soemthig like that?

    Send an email to:

    with the following message:

    If you did it right then you should get a confirmation telling you everything about the list.

    I have drop an enquiry onto the list and I'll see if it results in anything

    Well here is all I have gotten so far from the listserv

    article by Cliff Dodd in the 1990 CPN (3-4) pp 103-105 entitled "Grafting Nepenthes".
