    Isn't that N. spec. nov. Sumatra that Wistuba has been selling for a while? If not, it looks extremely similar

    all i can say is i hope the scramble for this thing makes ppl forget about jacqu's and drops the price on them much prefer Jeremiah's red jac to this one, though it is pretty cool

    I would say they appear quite similar but there also appears to be noticeable differences. Primarily in the upper pitcher lid width. As well as peristome width and flatness.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Ooooh, i see now. Also, Wistuba's plant has a toothed peristome, while the jamban's peristome's lip is rolled under (if that makes sense).

    Btw, when is your shop coming back? I need new neps!

    Oh Gosh.. so much to do yet. Thinking maybe sometime in November before it gets really cold.

    Just added a couple more pics to the thread in the Ghouse area. Greenhouse frame is mostly up but have alot of cross braces to install and then work on concrete so I can get the steel building erected.

    Not a chance!

    I just gave up waiting for prices on things like hamata to drop. To use that as an example, hamata prices are about twice as much in the U.S. as they were when I first started growing Neps a little over four years ago... and that plant has been in successful tissue culture longer than I've been growing! Go figure...

    That having been said, some vendors do actually drop prices on new introductions after they've been on the market for awhile.
    Check my growlist! Nothing currently available for trade...

    Prices will certainly drop, especially when TC clones come through and replace the few seed-grown plants in cultivation. It takes about 4 years though from first collection of seed to release of first TC clones if they are to be properly nursery hardened. In the case of N. jamban there is about 18 months to go before that starts to happen.

    N. hamata is an anomoly. Although we're not the only grower to produce this species, our availability was hit by our loss of our TC stock (had to be destroyed when license with supplier was not renewed). We then had to obtain new TC clones and start again. Then there was a problem with lab contamination which we're still battling, hence the scarcity of supply - at least from us anyway
