    Hey Joe, Grafting Nepenthes is possible and it has been done. Cliff Dodd wrote an article on grafting in the Carnivorous Plant Newsletter in 1990.

    Here is the refrence:
    Cliff Dodd (1990) Grafting of Nepenthes CPN 19(3-4):103-105.
    Keywords: cultivation: Nepenthes
    Species: Nepenthes rafflesiana, mixta, alata, fusca, reinwardtiana, alata, dyeriana, rajah
    Notes: 1 reference, 1 drawing, 2 b&w photos

    Amori played around with a few plants here and had mixed results. You may be able to get this copy of CPN through an interlibrary loan. I have it at work, but I am at home right now, its been a while since I read the article, but the subject of grafting comes up on a pretty regular basis.

    If I had the time, I'd like to mess around with it a bit more... Give it a try!

    Thanks Steve,
    Problem is 1) I have only 5 plants; which I adore. 2) I am pretty skilled with it as far as cactus goes, but I imagine Neps are a different lot. I killed many a catus to finally succeed on first tries now. I don't want to do that with my Neps.
    I was also wondering if they maybe could be grafted to totally a different climber/vine? Like a grapevine just as an example.

    Nope,usualy you can only graft between plants of the same genera,sometimes between different genera,and with only ONE exeption you can`t graft between different familys(the exeption is between red clover and sunflower wich has been done successfully).
