    Wait until your plant sarts to develop a climbing stem. N. villosa do an amazing thing in the wild when they start to climb. If the plant has grown at the base of a tree instead of amongst low shrubs (through which it will scramble), it will press its self against the trunk, wrap its petioles around and then link the tendrils on the opposite side so as to be literaly hugging the tree in order to climb. The visual effect of this is some what astounding when first seen.
    Hi,

    welcome to the forum!

    The plant you're speaking of is N. veitchii, not N. villosa.

    Cheers Joachim

    P.S.: Very nice plants as always Bill (also the ones shown on CPUK)!

    Thanks for the welcome note,

    I realised the mistake I had made after I had logged off lastnight. I have been trying to contact the man who has the photos in which I saw N. veitchii performing this amazing feat in the hope that he will let me post them for all of u to see. I'll let u know if I am successful.

    goodness man, nice villosa.

    i have been in search of a villosa for quite some time along with many other rather rare nepenthes for some time. your villosa is seriously amazing and i would pay any amount of patience to achieve that kind of beauty.

    nice job spoiling your nepenthes, it looks great.
