    Rattler,
    Actually I would not be surprised if D. regia(unless it's 'Big Easy') is harder for most than N. edwardsiana would be.
    I know most of us who have grown neps for a while have a phase to get any rare or cool new plant they don't have(some people never leave this phase, lol), but I like seeing well-grown plants, no matter what they are. Somebody in Hawaii(was it Rainforest?) had a pic of a ventrata grown outside that looked like a shrub.

    Cheers,

    Joe

    Ok, I'll drop it because I'm mature, and let your opinion be correct, even though I tried to be judicious.

    You're a moderator and you're not making a very good example of yourself if you keep obsessing over this subject.

    Obessing and discussing are two different things. Secondly, moderator or not, I will voice my opinion when I darn well please it and thirdly, I'm glad I'm not a vendor of these edwardsiana seedlings because I obviosly don't know what I'm talking about and I would sell every last seedling to all immature kids and hope every one of them dies and perishes a horrible death.

    For chirst's sake, did you listen to what I said, I took the advice years ago to wait until i was older and more experienced...oh crap theres that darned word again.... and then I went to the highland species.

    Bottom line is to everyone else thats been following this topic, wait, get experience...darn I love that word and then move to the harder plants, don't waste your money on something that will not likely survive in less than optimal care.

    Don't believe a word I just said? Then tell the Nepenthes guru's such as Mike Catalani and Jeff Shafer and Tony P they know nothing, because I learned everything I now know from them.

    After reading some of the latest posts in this thread, thought I'd post a recent listing from Slashdot, dated February 13:

"That's how flame wars get started," says psychologist Nicholas Epley of the University of Chicago, who conducted the research with Justin Kruger of New York University. "People in our study were convinced they've accurately understood the tone of an e-mail message when in fact their odds are no better than chance," says Epley. The researchers took 30 pairs of undergraduate students and gave each one a list of 20 statements about topics like campus food or the weather. Assuming either a serious or sarcastic tone, one member of each pair e-mailed the statements to his or her partner. The partners then guessed the intended tone and indicated how confident they were in their answers. Those who sent the messages predicted that nearly 80 percent of the time their partners would correctly interpret the tone. In fact the recipients got it right just over 50 percent of the time."
    I know I've been guilty of this once or twice.

    Just FYI.

    I've got some questions about growing edwardsiana. Hopefully those of you who grow plants with similar needs (burbigeae, villosa, lowii) can tell me something. I know from what the vendor told me that these plants need 50-55F temps every night and I'm guessing they'd need around 70 during the day? The one thing I can't find for most plants is a soil recipe. Only a few species have detailed information on specific soils they like. I know edwardsiana needs it to be very pure in terms of salts and minerals, but what else? Anybody know something that works for most Kinabalu species?

    dont try to be mature by stating it, just keep it to yourself.

    so how many plants have you killed to gain that... um whats that word... experience?
