Yes Alex, only cuttings. Unforunate ATM, but some people have obviously had these for a while, so perhaps someone will set seed sometime in the near future. Then, regardless of your preferred material origin, there should be a lot more of these available.
Med school is KILLING ME. If you want me to see something, PM me. I don't read everything on here like I used to.
we went to to site this year but no seeds were found, no plants was even in flower, can't tell which one is male or female. There were seedlings at the site, so they must be procreating there.
the reason for the price is beacause the location is hard to get to, and the flowering season is not known. the species are also very hard to propagate via cuttings, very picky. I think the reason for this is that they are highly specialized to their habitat, the location feels like a HL, but its bellow 1300m.
a returned trip is planned in the future, hopefully it will coincide with the ripening of seeds
I have become interested in how many clones of this exist in cultivation - it can't be many. This one and the one pictured in the link above look different to me. Anyone got any insights into this
BTW I have spoken to those who have taken cuttings of this species and not found it challenging. I have a cutting from someone who I know has made and sold several and Andreas was selling cuttings a while ago.
They are still expensive of course - would be wonderful to get seed
some of the Tenuis at vining stage was around 2-3m, but there were no sign of old flower stalk.
i did not witness any great variations, the photos here pretty much sums it up, the yellow colour, and the redish upper, thats about it. most of the pittcher are totally imbeded in sphagnum. you can check out the insitu photos form our trip in wikipedia.
I've witnessed some seasonal flowering among neps, but not all. The tenuis site that we visited show no sign of previous flowering or any sign of sending flower stalk, so not really sure what is going on there.
regarding cuttings, maybe you can share some of your method in tenuis cuttings (how many nodes, leaf left intact or not, humidity, mediam, temp), as i'm very interested in your technique. some seasoned grower which have tried tenuis cuttings find it quit difficult with very low success rate. cuttings are very prone to rot.
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.

vidyut: hey mylesg. glad to hear that. Love this forum. Facebook can't organize knowledge like this. Will participate as much as I can.

vidyut: Photobucket has ruined this place and many other forum archives with years and years of photos worth referencing now blurred. Priceless information hostage to services once free, begging for adoption, arbitrarily monetized.
