    I just read on an e-bay auction that truncata will no longer be T.C.-ed in the US. Is this true, or just a way to get some one to bid higher?

    From what I hear, it is indeed true.

    Well, Agristarts used to have it on their list, and they no longer do, so if they are the only source, then I would not doubt it.

    Cheers,

    I would see lowland truncata not being in TC as an issue, in fact I'd see it as a positive. TC is good for plants with limited availability, where you need to produce large numbers of plants quickly. The downside is it produces thousand of identical plants with little or no genetic variability, depending on the number of clones in culture. Lowland truncata is so common that seed is flowing out of most peoples ear's (like ventricosa and maxima seed).

    Agristarts has indeed discontinued N. truncata, along with S. purpurea venosa. They are the primary wholesale supplier of these species in the USA.

    I see this as a VERY VERY VERY good thing. I think when certain plants are "overly" available some people fail to realize that planst greatness.

    Some people have too much nep seed? If so I will take it. I hope to figure out how to germinate it. I think I know how (after doing mucho research) now but as they say Third times the charm. And this should be true as it took till my third Nep to figureout how to grow them.
