    Yes, in my experience upper pitchers are often not produced unless the climbing tendrils have something to grasp on to. Seeya. Peter

    I've also found that giving the upper tendrils something to grasp promotes pitchering.

    A couple of months ago, my N.gracilis produced a strange-shaped upper pitcher--it looked like a perfect cone!

    Now, the N.gracilis is producing a lovely flower spike at the tip of one of its vines. Looking forward to that!

    So, yeah, give 'em something to hold onto.

    I bought some small trelis and some of those green garden sticks and applied them to all of my climbing nepenthes. We'll see how it goes. thanks for the tips.

    That's a good use for those chopsticks...I've tried countless times with those things...amazing how the fork hasn't caught on in certain parts of the world. The fork is really a no-brainer, why make things difficult? A Nep prop is just about the best use of those things that I've seen. Good work.

    Because Confucius believed in and propagated the idea that using knives and other pointy objects at the dining table are barbarous.

    Also, there's absolutely no better tool than chopsticks for eating noodles as well as fish prepared whole.

    That's not what the folks from Ginsu promote in that they can use their knives to cut through a shoe...just in case someone wants to serve shoe I guess.
