Does anyone grow Triphyophyllum? Im reading a book about the physiology, ecology, and evolution of carnivorous plants and this plant was mentioned. I have never heard of it before but it has carnivorous leaves similar to Drosera.

It is doubtful anyone grows it. From what I understand, the mature plant can be more than a hundred feet long. It is only some intermediary leaves that are carnivorous. There is a good, brief overview at http://www.sarracenia.com/faq/faq5560.html

A couple years ago there were a few posts on Facebook of plants in TC. Haven't heard a word since then.

These are definitely on my wishlist - they make having Sarracenia 'Saurus' and Cephalotus 'Eden Black' on that list look sane by comparison :lol:
