    Yet another reason for the high prices maybe that this plant is also a female.
    forgot about that. haha. thats a plausible reason too.

    My experience is that some of the other clones are more vigorous - I grow a male clone that is supposed to be a sibling of 'Peter D'Amato' that is considerably more vigorous and bigger than my 'Peter D'Amato'. So look for any N. ventricosa x lowii or N. lowii x ventricosa if you can find 'em. It's a great hybrid!

    I remember you bringing a cutting of that plant to one of the meetings and putting it in the raffle. I wanted to get my hands on it, but someone got it first. I do remember you saying that it was the brother of Peter D'Amato. If you ever bring another piece of it, I'd love to give it a shot one day. (hopefully in the auction rather than the raffle)

    I got that plant originally as a tiny pitcherless unrooted cutting at my first BACPS meeting. In the raffle! I'll save a cutting for you next time I take one, Brokken.

    I completely disagree. Once the plant grows large enough...and under very good cultural conditions you can usually expect to see basals on an annual basis. My largest plant produces at least 4 huge basals every year and has done so without fail for the last 10 years. It is my most vigorous growing nep.
