    Hi,

    I just visited the JCPS website. In it are some pixs taken at malesiana tropicals. There is a picture of a healthy N. klossii. I just wonder when this plant will be available. Hope MT can answer this.

    Hi all

    The lid of Klossii resembles that of Izumiae. I wonder if a hybrid between aristolochioides AND Izumiae may create a Klosii look alike?

    Should be available soon. I know MT does have N. edwardsiana in their collection as well.

    Dustin,

    Do they? I thought the last batch ended up as N. edwardsiana x burbidgae. They certain have the misfortune of getting a lot of accidental hybrid seed(clipeata= clipeata x rafflesiana, giant red bical=gracilis x gnt red bical).

    Regards,

    Joe

    There was a picture taken during the same tour the N. klossii was photographed of what appeared to be a young N. edwardsiana. Although it's not positively identified and it could be a young N. macrophylla.
    N. edwardsiana/macrophylla

    The hybrid your referring to Joe popped up in a collection of N. burbidgeae seed not N. edwardsiana seed. This is a documented natural hybrid.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Hi all:

    Some sources have told me that the photo on Tony's last message is from a N. edwardsiana collected in the wild. So they have no viable seed. Other sources have told me that the edwardsiana seed never germinates in T.C. I wonder if it will ever be commercially available. I do believe however, if anybody has N. edwardsiana will not have it commercially available in the near future.

    Gus
