Anyone know if its possible to graft 2 different nepenthes together? (like putting a villosa onto a ventrata to gain an easier to grow villosa)

hypotheticly, yes, the more closely related the better. Even then it would not be a 100% chance of taking and as a redult both plants could die it it doesn't take.(one from no growth point, the other from no root) if you have a lot of nepenthes to spare, i guess you could try that. on cpuk forums there is this question alredy, and basicly, it's hard to do since it's a monocot, with those things that transport nutrients and stuff.
see: https://www.cpukforum.com/forum/index.p ... -question/ for more info.

I've successfully grafted my harryana on top of a rafflesiana root stock.
As of now, I've noticed significantly faster growth to the point where it may be on par with my mollis x veitchii.
A problem I actually faced was the raff sending out extra basals, to work around this, I used heavier pumice in my media mix to make the basal growth harder. My harryana is pretty healthy after 3 months of recovery.
