    Could you have the lower pitchers of one species, and the uppers of another? This would be a really interesting experiment if anyone is willing to do it.

    I think Cliff Dodd down in South Florida did it years ago.
    Somewhere this is a paper on it..

    Cheers,

    You're right Joe. It was Cliff. He grafted rafflesiana...maybe it was two different clones. I remember him talking about grafting a rafflesiana onto a Mixta rootstock at Bob McMorris's barbeque years ago...either he had just succeeded or was trying it. I don't think you can graft just anything to anything, there are certain parameters to what will work.

    I don't know but that's what I read. Something about a sealing agent?

    I'd guess it would be possible to graft a highland species to a lowland species depending on the species. Some are much more tolerable than others...N. truncata is an example of a lowlander that is pretty tolerant of cooler conditions...grafting truncata with an intermediate highlander may be possible. Once I have a greenhouse it is something I'd like to experiment with.
