I guess its one of the more popular species, big pitchers, very easy to grow. Some of the forms i find a bit boring though, all green, there are some really nice colorfull clones around. I got bored of mine a few years ago as it was all green and not so big pitchers so i sold it.

Why is nepenthes truncata so hard to get?

Probably because they are sold out fast...

I will have some few plants available again in some few weeks.

I got a N.Truncata of Matthew Soper about three years ago,but I find it to be hard to grow and slow.

Because its awesome, I love Truncata and can't wait until i get my little greasy slimy dirt ridden hands on one, lol. My hands are very clean actually ;-) but i can't wait to get a Truncata, and one day find a fat rat caught in the pitcher

I love it for many reasons. One of them, big leathery pitchers, it looks beautiful, it's probably the nepenthes that shows carnivory the best. Some of the growers I know found mice, some even sparrows ( it seems to have a thing for mice...). All in all, it's my favorite Nepenthes of them all, it's a beast!
