    In one (possably both) of Slack's books he talks about grafting Neps so I would take that as an indication that it might be done. I have never heard of anyone else trying it though so...

    You might want to try posting this question on the CP listserv as well and see if you get any answers there.

    Cliff Dodd, a longstanding grower and hybridizer of nepenthes, tried this back in the 80s. He had mixed results, as I recall, and left it at that. While he still recommended that work needed to be done in this area, I don't think he pursued it further. Oz

    I am just curious as to why you would want to graft them?
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    I had the same thoughts when I read about Cliff's attempts, Tony. I think he was trying to graft some of the "more difficult" species onto stock of plants that were considered easy growers. Also, there was mention of the ability to minimize the need for space...imagine a nepenthes trunk with different stems producing different pitchers. Doesn't appeal to me, but it is interesting. Oz

    Although I haven't done any grafting except for fruit trees, it might be a bit of a fun thing to get 3 different varieties of pitchers on the same plant. It would seem that one would want to head back the parent plant so that two or three growth buds start growing. Once there are three nice stems on the parent plant, one could try clipping two of them and graft a different nep on each stem. It might also be interesting to see if grafting a strong rooted fast growing nep might accelerate growth in the grafted parts if they are a slower growing nep. It might also be interesting to see if a highland requiring cooler temps might grow a bit faster when grafted to a continous growing lowland such as N. rafflesiana, as the grafted part should not require the rest if it is being stimulated by the lowland root system. Let me know how you come out.

    Well, as for me Grafting has been a sort of hobby to me, i remember doign it with Various Tree's in the woods when i was younger and just recently i grafted some Cacti, and they are marvelous, both sides of the plants, are Growing at Extremely Fast rates and its just Crazy! bwhahah! I LOVE IT.. and the idea of a Multi Specie Nep make me all fuzzy and warm inside, to acutally accomplish a feet like that, when i get my greenhouse this winter and get some plants moved in, i will be doign all these weird Experiments MWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH *** GAG GAG COUGh**


    **clears throat**

    Anyways, Real FUn! Grafting is! and you knwo just thought of Grafting Sarracenia Rhizomes, wouldnt see why that wouldnt work, there quite Fleshy and just seem perfect!
