Nice No pitchers and very small as are all of them but that has travelled extremely well for what is actually a rather fragile species. We're very pleased for you. Please would you PM (or preferably e-mail) to let us know who you bought it from? They did a fine job of getting it to you like that.
Good luck with that little guy. Last Sunday I gave one to David Attenborough at his home in London and it's now in a jar in his living room alongside his other small but rapidly growing Nepenthes collection. Yes, at age 86 he's become a Nepenthes enthusiast too . His daughter Susan actually looks after the plants though and I doubt that David is allowed to actually touch them. When he got his first Nepenthes last year he joked that we could say "as killed by David Atttenborough" but they were in Bio-Domes and are thriving so he had to take that back LOL ;D
Haha. Wow, I hope David can grow N. attenboroughii ok. It would be pretty ironic if he killed it . Since you are here Rob, I was wondering if you know what altitude the attenboroughii seeds were collected and how old these seedlings are. Thanks, and I will email you now.

BTW they grow on ultramafic soils which will be relevent for cultivation requirements.
Hi Rob, Question: how do you address the specific soil needs when attempting to accommodate for these species from ultramafic soil environments? How would the average Nepenthes aficionado make sure there was sufficient Nickel, Cadmium, etc. in their soil mix? Thanks!
