Nepenthes argentii is a recently new species to hit the market. The first ones were grown from seed, but now have become available through tissue culture so the price has dramatically dropped, but are still rather expensive. N. argentii are small plants with small pitchers. It's one of the smaller pitchering Nepenthes available. Nonetheless it is "charming" to say the least. It appears to be a slow grower. The tendrils are long in comparison to where the pitcher forms. I was told that the pitchers like to form under or right at the surface level so you should give N. argentii a bigger size pot than normal. Growing the plant appears to be easy. I've had no problems with this species.
Cultivation: easy: somewhat of a slow grower
Market availability: size 2 to possibly size 3 tissue culture plants; limited but becoming more available because of tissue culture.
Species variability: none that I'm aware of
$ / size: expensive; $75.00 for the tissue culture and up to $170.00 for the first seed grown specimens.
Cuttings: none available for trade
