hello i have three overgrown hanging baskets of nepenthes ventrata. i was wondering if i was to root and grow this plant in my lowland chamber (with my nepenthes ampullaria and soon to be gracilis) if they would do better or worse. or should i just root and grow them with the mother plants?

They shouldn't have any problems in LL conditions if mine are 'typical'! Below is one of about a dozen plants that are about 4-5 years old now. I had to cut some of the 'wildness' off of them as they were entangling themselves in such out-of-control fashion that you couldn't pass down the aisles of the greenhouses! The one I'm holding is 'after' having trimmed it! The other photo is one of several that are again in need of a severe whacking. The first and the latter ones are all growing in hollow coconut shells, meaning they have less rootball than a 6" pot! (A few of the coconut shell cuttings are gracilis mixed in with the ventratas).
So, I'd say; go ahead and make some cuttings! ;>) ~Shawn
wow man i cant get over how beautiful those plants are i took a cutting in a lowland terrarium earlier and i am also going to air layer one of them and if the air layering works out better ill use it also.

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?
