    I just ordered a fusca. But maxima is also easy. I like the darker colors so I picked fusca. Maybe I'll order a maxima later.

    I was planning on putting a fresh N. sibuyanensis basal cutting up for auction. Both basals are pitchering. The basal offered should be up in the NASC auction today. So get one there! It's a very nice plant with impressive pitchers when grown out!

    It's still attatched to the main plant right now. Unless otherwise requested, I'd be cut from the mother plant the same day as shipment. Don't know if I'd have time to root it myself between now and the end of the auction.

    Edited Addition: These basals have been developing for a good long while, so they're pretty well established so should be easy to root (if they don't have their own roots already) and should be pretty strong.

    If you don't have maxima, get one of the darker clones. You will not be disappointed in this easy, large, fast-growing plant.


    Ramispina is nice and easy, but once the thrill of seeing the black pitchers is gone, (maybe 2-3 years), it is a rather ordinary plant.

    Edit: better picture.

    Spectabilis is spectacular! I've only had my plant for less than a year, and always wondered what all the fuss was about. One of the best parents and quite nice on its own. I'n not sure if they are all red like this since most people just show the pitcher.


    Fusca is nice but not as easy and not as big. The flared peristome version rocks!


    Sib requires some patience.

    Maxima and spectabilis would be at the top of my list.
