That's the way i'm reading it. (No offense there, i got carried away.)
    Bonk!

    That was a joke right?? You forget I am an old fuddy duddy.

    Now if I could just keep my desk as clean as the language on this forum, life would be perfect.

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

    Ha ha ha. You know, evening TV probably has more innapropriate language and references than i usually use. Yeah, that was a joke. Besides, i automatically try to find loopholes in everything i do or hear. Say, if a person put me in the middle of a desert, and told me to walk a hundred yards without touching the ground, i'd just walk one hundred yards. Get it, your touching the inside of your shoes and not the ground. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Anyway, i guess i'm getting off the point here. Tony, what do you think of a Villosa x Ampullaria? I'd make one myself, but One, i don't have either of those. (yet), and Two, I don't think they sell many Neps (especially Villosa) with a big ole climbing stem ready to flower. Maybe someone has an Ampullaria or Villosa that outgrew it's terrarium.

    I have (finally!) a flowering N. ampullaria - tricolor. Now if all those people with flowering N. villosa would just form a queue please... steady there! No need to rush... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Hi Rob:

    that'd be a fantastic hybrid! you can grow it almost anywhere except for the sahara desert and antarctica.

    Really Nep Master?! I am surprised! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Gus, it's taken ages to get N. ampullaria to flower in cultivation. Wild N. ampullaria hybrids are relatively common but I am wondering if there are many man-made crosses with this species? Will have to check.

    Gus, it's taken years, darned plant is 6m high as are many other amps here. It's one of 70 we have been trying to flower. I tried grafting leaves on to this particular plant from a flowering N. mirabilis about a year ago to attempt to stimulate it. Nothing happened at the time but it's strange that a year later this one has produced 2 spikes and the others have done nothing.

    Now my problem is reaching the flowers, step ladder isn't big enough!
