I've had trouble rooting this also. This plant grows so well that I took a cutting from a node that was dormant when I started rooting before the initial cutting died. I was able to root the second cutting. I used a slightly different method, so maybe this will help. I used a fairly wide shallow tuperware container with perlite and a little charcoal, no drainage. I allowed the perlite to barely dry before misting the perlite and allowing a little water to collect in the bottom. The roots actually formed along the bottom of the container in a wide flat disk.

DangerousPlants has or had them, but despite trying my damnedest, I only get in touch with them about once every 3 months. I've sent lots of emails to Thomas and never gotten a response, he's never online anymore and the last couple times he was I didn't get a response, and I sent Dave a PM or two about it and also never got a response. Whenever I do get to talk to him, our convos usually go about like this:
Thomas: I have a lot of stuff Me: What about X? T: No Me: Well what about X? T: No Me: Hmm..in that case, how about X, X, X, X, and X? T: No, no, no, no, and I have to check but I don't think so.
I would just buy one from them, but for some reason, I don't see that happening. I'd try anyway if I were you...maybe I'm just having bad luck?

plantguyty1: Does anybody need pollen? I have N. Miranda it's the first time it flowered for me so I do not know if its sterile or a good candidate. Is there anybody with an active female that would like to give my pollen a shot?

thatoneplantboi: Hey guys, I'm new to growing nepenthes, I'm getting a mini indoor greenhouse to grow them in. What kind of light should I use for them? Also, if you could provide a link to a product, it would be very much appreciated

borneo: Yes, they work superbly. But you don't need expensive lights, cheap ones work well too.
