Hi all. It's Doug Atlas, back on the group (I had been off since last

For those who don't know me, here's a brief intro: I have been growing
cp for about 6 years. I have had good success with the more "common"
species and hybrids, but not much experience with the more exotic ones.
My favorite group of cp these days is Nepenthes.

Four months ago, I went back to school and (unfortunately) had to give away a
lot of my cp; I onlyl kept my Nepenthes, plus a few other "fun" species
of CP. But virtually all of my north american cp had to go. :(

I would be interested in hearing from any CP growers in the
Philadelphia, PA area (my new home away from home). I may have extra
Nepenthes for trade/free.

The CP I still have are doing well. The N Mixta 'superba' is producing
pitchers that are over 20 cm long. Wow. My N eymai finally started to
pitcher; it is producing cute little upper pitchers (the cutting I received
must have been taken from upper growth). I got good germination on various
nepenthes seed from the cpn seedbank.

Anyone out there have an extra n ampullaria for trade? I have been
looking for one of these for a couple of years, but the only ones I've
seen are from overseas and very pricey.

Happy new year to all, and good growing!
