    N. hamata did it first. Nowadays, I'm loving the N. macrophylla.

    The first Nepenthes that captured my imagination was N. villosa as pictured in the May, 1964 National Geographic. (Yes, I'm a geezer!) It was quite a few more years before I was able to grow my first Nepenthes, but that article really gave me the bug!

    yep.. hamata!
    I could not beleive that plants actually had teeth. The picture of hamata from Peter De amato's book got me hooked. Then I saw a pic of edwardsiana...I have never been the same since! lol

    N.inermis for me. I was fascinated by the fact that it is said to produce a narcotic to stun insects! My first nep was an N.gracilis.
