This may be a tentative thing, but . . . does anyone have any N. gracilis rooted cuttings or etc. they're looking to be rid of? I have a rooted cutting of a general N. ventrata (or N. alata x ventrata). Easy plant to easy plant, maybe someone doesn't yet have this one?
I can provide a picture of it. :)

I rooted it at the end of last year, I believe, with rooting hormone. It's planted in some lfs and I later added peat on top. The newest leaves are 4" across, so the whole plant's leafspan is 8". It has two growth points from activated nodes. As the picture shows, it has a tendril elongating, but no pitchers as of yet. I grow it outside on my porch where the light comes in through a south facing window mostly. The nights for the last week have been in the low 60s with days in the high 70s and lower 80s. I believe humidity is around 50% usually, sometimes less, and likewise, can be up to 80% or more at night.
If I trade it, it'll be bareroot with chilean sphagnum.

I have some drosera intermedia seeds, but I think that's all for the moment. :I Sorry.
I had a s. rubra that needs dividing, but it's currently blooming. Not very uncommon, though.

You'll be very pleased with the cutting that he'll send you. Eric, did you see the updated picture of the N. gracilis you sent me? The traps are turning red now.
