Cuttings went out this morning (Thurs. 9/22) for the 12 people I mentioned the
other day plus K.Martin, J.Ford, and J.Gitomer. A few dropped out so if any
are still interested, send me your $2.90 for postage so I can finish this off.

I enclosed my suggestions (just suggestions BTW) for rooting and growing but I
didn't mention temps. As for most Nepenthes, it seems to me that 60F is a safe
low. Any lower temps and you may risk some damage. High humidity will offer
some protection from cool temps, but not much.

Last note - I am assuming that everyone must have heard something about the
fungus that lives in sphagnum moss. Wear gloves when handling the moss with
your cutting.
