    I love the peristome of throns N. hamata produces, but I have done very poorly with highland Neps.

    Are there any lowland species or lowland-tolerant hybrids that produce thorned peristomes at all like N. hamata?

    Maybe shoot for a N. 'Predator'? It's a hybrid with hamata and truncata originating at Exotica nursery in Australia(From the Mansell's). I think it's more intermediate than lowland.

    Cheers,

    Joe

    N. mirabilis var. echinostoma has a wide flat peristome with weird spike projections. Hard to get hold of a real echniostoma though. Mine ended up being plain old N. mirabilis after several years growth. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]

    Well it likes it outside in Atlanta during the summer I can say that much

    As Joe said, the closest thing would be N. Predator, the hybrid of truncata x hamata. As you can see from pics, the peristome is more of a deep ridging, no curved teeth. Unfortunately, there are no lowland species with the hamata-edwardsiana-villosa type of peristome. The echinostoma peristomes are very cool: Wide and yoke-like with fine wavy ridges, and projecting spikes! They are true lowlanders and get quite large.

    Here's my Predator. It also grows in ultra-highland conditions! You can see the ridges on the peristome here.
