    Great pictures. I've heard that there might be a few of these floating around as seedlings. Sure wish that I knew where to get one....

    There are a few edwardsiana in cultivation, although I suspect quite a few of them are more likely to be macrophylla as the seed was from Tambuyukon (edwardsiana is endemic to a small site on Trusmadi). In cultivation, it is a slow grower, liking true highland conditions (that is likes it cooler than macrophylla but not as cold as villosa). It is not as rare as one would think, but many will not admit to growing it as the seed was probably less than legally sourced (then again, that goes for many species in cultivation)

    I have heard rumours of it being in tissue culture, although the likely source at this stage will neither confirm nor deny the rumours.

    Yeah I agree Dustin, a cutting would give it more side growth! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] We should suggest that to the grower [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    So SydneyNeps, your saying there is only one type of edwardsiana [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]
    I thought there were at least 3 different kinds. Charles Clark has a picture in his book of edwardsiana from both Mnt. kinabalu, and Mnt. tambuyukon. Then there is this red version in the pics I just linked. There are more pics of the red one on Phill Manns site. It looks different than the ones from either kinabalu, or tambuyukon.
    Perhaps that is the one from trusmadi??

    There is still debate as to what is what, edwardsiana, macrophylla, villosa. All three are very closely related.

    But I'd also say that whatever Charles has stated, I'd not disagree with. Charles has a sensible and pragmatic approach to taxonomy, and has a very keen eye, so I'd be loathe to contradict him.

    Is M. edwardsiana the last frontier in nepenthes cultivation? It seems that almost everything else is available or at least is around. What species other than the exotic newly described species is still unavailable?

    I may set up a special post for this topic since it will stray away from the N. edwardsiana. I must say that the photo of N. edwardsiana is a gorgeous one.

    I think that seedlings will be the first introduction to horticulture. The next batch will be from tc starters.
