    BTW this is my second account after losing my password to the first one. I was Mr. Truncata. I traded you an izumae a few years ago. You still have it?
    Man, I wish I still did, but I was a lot worse with plants back then and the species has since disappeared from the market. Nice to hear from you again! Kinda wish we could go back a few years, I remember when I could buy a 6" N. lowii for $20.

    It's a great plant, although I pay more attention to its close cousin N. faizaliana (which is a much poorer grower for me unfortunately). No promises but the N. boschiana does have a few basals just breaking the surface right now.

    Well, if you ever accidentally break a basal, I'sure i have something I could trade you...


    Man I hear you on the going back a few years, N. lowii used to be everywhere. Now there is a 4" SG N. lowii on eBay for 500+ right now. Makes my little pot of marud N. lowii seedlings look like a variable pot of gold...

    I know what you two mean. I just want to find another truncata but it's just been impossible. Not a single online nursery carries it. I would have thought availability would increase over the past 5 years instead of decrease. It's just been tough to find a lot of the plants that were available back then. When was the last time you saw a N. Red Dragon for sale? I wonder if the nurseries in the US just sold all their stock and never replenished.

    Also really like your bonsai pot/ rock Idea for the campanulata's, so much so that i've copied it today. Hope you don't mind! I bought some volcanic and limestone rock to try out on a few plants. Is your rock limestone? have you noticed any difference in growth since you used the rock?

    That's odd. I've seen N. truncata for sale a couple times recently, though only in person at a local nursery. Perhaps I should have bought one, though the price was a little high for my taste.

    I have to say I love that boschiana and bicalcarata too.

    There was actually one on eBay not too long ago, but besides that I'd say we're pretty hard pressed to find any of the classic EP crosses from retailers, especially since they don't do microprop. I was lucky to get my N. truncata right before they all seemed to disappear from but I never asked where mine came from (I think it's a Pasian highland plant but honestly it's hard to tell).

    I've got to say, it's turned out much nicer than I was expecting judging by its earliest pitchers:
    N. boschiana Sakumbang
    As a side note, I'm really liking all of the seed grown species releases from BE, I was hoping to snag one of their Bario N. veitchii they released but haven't seen any around.

    Feel free, whatever it takes to grow some great N. campanulata! Both N. campanulata have grown with some form of limestone or another for as long as I've had them and the water I use is slightly hard too so I can't really comment on their growth without it.
