    Hi,

    I mounted a lowland Nep truncata in the fork of a piece of driftwood in a terrarium. I layered the fork with spahgnum moss and other mosses to keep it moist and carefully put it in place. The only thing was when it pitchered the whole thing came off and my experiment came to an end. ANd next time I'll have to wire the vine on!.

    I would try a cutting from a relatively easy growing vine as a start. The roots and dormant node will grow with about the same speed, so it will have a good chance to establish. Also this way if it didn't work out you wouldn't loose a plant just one cutting.

    Somewhere online there is a japanese Nep growers website which has tons of pics of many of his plants (seedling to mature) growing mounted on dead moss covered branches in his greenhouse in the manner I described. Unfortunately I can't find the link on my favorite places right now.
    Just look up nepenthes on google and check the sites that end with ".jp"... it's one of them! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]

    i'd select a smaller grower, like n. gracilis, campanulata, etc
    campanulata even grows on rocks as a lithophyte, so you could try that out.


    it just seems like a larg growng species would become too heavy eventually

    Interesting. So, the pitcher weight was enough to set it off balance?
