    Suggestions: What new Neps should I buy? XD

    Well, the title pretty much says it all. I'm asking all of you guys here at TerraForums about what Neps I should try to get, now that I have some money!

    And it's a great time to buy new Neps - summer is over, I can provide both HL and LL conditions until next summer, and it will give the plants plenty of time to settle in.

    So, I'm considering these...

    N. flava from Wistuba...unknown clone...suggestions?
    N. burbidgeae, another one, either SG'd with an 8-12" leafspan, or a 3" TC clone from Pig Hill...
    N. spectabilis N. Sumatra clone 1
    N. sibuyanensis x hamata
    N. tentaculata
    N. hamata - which Wistuba clone is best?


    Plus, If there are any plants that you all find awesome and not too difficult that are currently on the Wistuba and EP pricelists, please let me know! I am open to any suggestions - and advice on the plants that I listed.

    Thanks!

    Jimmy

    I think N. burbidgeae is a good choice.


    P.S. remove the store name...

    I would get the N. sibuyanensis x hamata IMO.

    Ant, Wistuba and EP are overseas; It is okay to list them, I've read.

    N. hamata (the true species) was always my favorite Nepenthes when i had a house full of them. Have you got a regular N. hamata? Mine grew very quickly for a highland species.

    I was considering a hamata, but being so expensive, I thought I might want to wait until cuttings were ever put up for trade - I really like the uppers!

    But tentaculata, being cheaper, may be better to start with. I forgot to put it on my list - I'll do that now...

    Anyway, hearing it is a fast grower is encouraging. I'm definitely going to consider it.

    Any suggestions on which Wistuba clone is the best? Oh, and squat, colorful pitchers make an awesome hamata!

    definantly NOT sib x ham, if you want the ham traits. Theirs a big discussion about the true genes and most evidnece presented seem to point it is sib x talang or 'Lady Pauline'. Just a heads up.

    Flava (if its anything like jacquelineae in growing conditions) is super easy, fast, and vigorous, and i would vote for that or hamata. Seed grown plants are always good though!
