    Good luck Tamlin, out of all the clones of N. ampullaria red, the clone No. 25 is as good as any of them. If you get your hands on a Williams red (which are still as rare as hen's teeth and somewhat more expensive!) you'll see the difference. Here is a snap I took this week with a William's red alongside a pretty good clone of the more usual red:

    Yes, Rob, they are quite expensive. Even as we speak, I have a goon, er, I mean a "P.I." hired to track down the originator of these nice clones, and "talk" some sense into this person, whomever he, I mean they may be.

    All joking aside (hard for me to do), where does "Borneo Sunrise" fit into this scheme? Did I botch that name, btw?

    Cheers,

    Rob,

    Thanks for fanning the flames mate, someday I'll get you too!

    Well, I am a plant magnet, so I am sure sooner of later I will find this beauty for a reasonable sum....free! I don't know how I manage to do it, or why it works, but it works! I find the N. ampullaria forms well behaved and ideal for my conditions, and if my start from Nep G is any indication, I do well with them. I appreciate knowing #25 is a goodun, but I was told by my source that all are very fine plants. Are all the clones still in production? Are there more than 25?

    I sure wish I had the conditions to really collect Nepenthes, but for now I content myself with seeing other peoples incredible plants, so please keep posting those photos! As you know Phill Mann and I are buddies, so between Tony, Phill and you I am well used to the torture!

    Keep up the good work!

    Hi Jo,

    The "Borneo Sunrise" was just one clone which I've not taken cuttings from, I've just grown it on and on and on and on in attempt to flower the thing. Darned vine is 18' long without any sign of flowering. Anyone know how to get a flower on N. ampullaria - I sure don't. Tried just about everythign I can think of.

    I'll be taking some cuttings off the basals sometime later this year.

    Julian, sometimes I think I'm lucky, othertimes I don't. I've had far easier jobs in my time but it's occasionally very rewarding. Sometimes unbeliveably frustrating too [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img]

    Tamli, there are a total of 70 clones of various red, or tricolor N. ampullaria under production here. There are some pretty odd ones too such as this guy:
