What's new

SF Bay Area & Davis
1. I have about a dozen or so cuttings of my Nepenthes "graciliflora" (the "smooth alata") available for trade. This is a very easy and vigorous species that can grow as a lowlander and highlander, although it seems to be pretty scarce in the trade right now. I have unrooted 2- and 4-node cuttings, a couple of which were cut about a month ago and are close to rooting and a bunch more just cut yesterday.

A picture of the mother plant before vining. This plant originated from a huge bush of a plant at the Conservatory of Flowers in San Francisco. I didn't manage to flower it before cutting the vine so I don't know the sex of this plant, although it is not the more common "Boschiana Mimic" clone.

Example cuttings. These will make intermediate/upper pitchers.

2. I also have a few cuttings of Nepenthes (ventricosa x lowii) cv. 'Peter D'Amato' x maxima for trade. This is a very rare seed grown hybrid from Peter D'Amato and happens to be one of the nicer plants from the grex. I also have not flowered this one so I do not know the sex.

An intermediate pitcher from this plant.

An upper (or close to it). I missed the one true definite upper this plant made, so I don't know if the color is always this nice.

<a data-flickr-embed="true" href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/61904224@N05/29186282515/in/dateposted-public/" title="IMG_0106"><img src="https://c4.staticflickr.com/9/8535/29186282515_132811d895.jpg" width="500" height="333" alt="IMG_0106"></a><script async src="//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
Example cuttings. Cut about a month ago, some are already rooted and activating nodes. These should make intermediate pitchers.

3. I have one VERY well-rooted cutting of N. ventricosa x ovata EP. The cutting was started about a year(?) ago and has been sitting in a glass of water ever since. The plant has lowers typical of the cross and nice red leaves. Also never flowered.

<a data-flickr-embed="true" href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/61904224@N05/25471390823/in/album-72157668620463286/" title="N. ventricosa x ovata EP"><img src="https://c8.staticflickr.com/2/1616/25471390823_db585cd1f6.jpg" width="333" height="500" alt="N. ventricosa x ovata EP"></a><script async src="//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
Sample upper.

4. Also available: one 10-node long cutting of my BE N. ventricosa x aristolochioides (male) that was cut some time ago but isn't rooted yet since it's rather woody growth without any active nodes. This is a cutting from older growth so the leaves on it don't look very good but the axillary buds are swelling and have found cuttings easy to root in the past.

<a data-flickr-embed="true" href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/61904224@N05/17828844739/in/dateposted-public/" title="N. ventricosa x aristolochioides"><img src="https://c4.staticflickr.com/9/8888/17828844739_8dfe8b3183.jpg" width="500" height="333" alt="N. ventricosa x aristolochioides"></a><script async src="//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
Pitchers on my plant are pretty typical.

5. VERY rare hybrid :lol: N. Ventrata; I have a few basal cuttings lying around in water glasses as well (unrooted) if anyone is looking for some.

Ventrata"><img src="https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1675/26007640441_acb3fa2269.jpg" width="333" height="500" alt="N. Ventrata"></a><script async src="//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
Typical pitcher from my plant.

LOOKING FOR: mostly for other Nepenthes cuttings/plants but I'll consider other offers as well.
