    I read in the Svage Garden that N. khasiana is an Appendix 1 species. I can understand that because that is one of the neps that I am wanting. Does anyone know of anybody that sells them in North Carolina(here we have many cps and no retailers other than Wal-mart and Lowes [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img] ).

    Thanks,
    Wes

    well, I don't know of anyone that stocks them regularly, but I saw some for sale at UNCC. I got my mixta x khansiana there, along with a large alata. There between 5-10 dollars a piece. I didn't know it was appendix one...

    Thanks,
    Craig

    Yea, I never thought they were, but I just looked for the sake of looking. Thanks for the help. I doubt that I will be around UNCC, for a while, but I'll be sure to keep an eye out. Thanks for the help.

    LAter,

    N. khasiana is Appendix 1 because it is endangered in it's native Khasi Highlands range in India.

    The Appendix I rank applies to CITES which regulates international traffic only. It is perfectly fine to buy and sell these plants within the borders of a country.

    N. khasiana is a bit of a bugger to start from cuttings and while available from overseas suppliers is probably not given as much attention because of it's fairly common status here in the US. I just added some to my pricelist since there seem to be people looking for them as you noted.

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

    i have a cutting of khasiana x Mixta thanks to Craig and with some luck will have some seeds from a khasiana x Miranda. im interested in seeing just how much of a differance the extra bit of maxima in the Miranda will have on the cross.

    Yeah, khansiana's a great plant. I would try getting one from pitcherplant.com- expensive plants, but worth it. All of mine have been full grown, with quite a few pitchers on them. I got my first plants there, and it spoiled me!
    rattler- How's the cutting coming? Hasn't died yet, has it? Yours is doing great! Looks like it'll have roots soon!

    Thanks,
    Craig
