    Hey Shady,

    D. binata clones are also easily propagated from root cuttings. You may have some luck with that.

    As far as tooty neps go, there are a couple of seriously cool highland hybrids that are at least prominently ridged: N. sibuyanensis x xTrusmadiensis and N. ventricosa x xTrusmadiensis are two that I have - note both are hybrids with x'Tusmadiensis'

    That again is where my mass of patience will come into play... she's a solid learner with patient and slow instrustion. Especially with something as complex as the needs of a highland Nep.

    The setup that I have is pretty self sufficient however... Timed lights and cooling fans and all that jazz... So we'll see how well she takes to it. I'm hoping that she'll really get the enjoyment out of growing carnivores that I do. Either way I win though, because if she gets what I call "4-year-old-with-a-new-puppy" syndrome and decides that she doesn't have the patience required, then I get a new Nep!
    I reject your reality, and substitute my own.

    Sarracenia Northwest's webpage lists April as when their hamatas will be available next. The last time however, they were around $70.

    I was so excitied that they were carrying it and then...I saw the price.

    Still hamatless.

    The first time I saw a hamata and predator I bought them. How much are you willing to spend? I paid 70 for my hamata and something like 100 for the predator. But I'm pretty sure you won't find a predator in the States so that's why. I got my hamata from black jungle by the way.

    Should try a Densiflora like Dave said, they're pretty evil-looking and much more common and a much better price than any of the more toothed Neps.
    It'd be better to see if yer set-up works well for HL's through the Summer with a less-expensive plant as well.
    If it does well, you could pick up a Hamata in the fall, they can be hard to find, but if you look around, you will find em.
