    I guess the hamata has a bad rap only due to its very early stages of high sensitivity to low humidity and requirement for proper acclaimatisation. I guess the 100$ plants from the VENDOR that DM got it...have been well acclaimatised to greenhouse conditions...unlike the TC babies from the main source. But yeah.... lowii is a perfect highlander.....its right there in a zone which defines the plants you can grow. If you are fine with lowii...u can probably grow burbidguae, ramispina, jacq., izumiae, etc...etc...without problems. However...plants such as talangensis are a step further as they have their own requirements for high lighting. I think that has been lacking in my setup and hence the talang for me hasn't yet pitchered.

    Basically you work up your way as Alex mentioned. At a month of experience, unless you have read tons of stuff on these plants, are willing to go down the bumpy road of a major change to your lifestyle (as harder plants require a bit more attention), you should first stick to beautiful hybrids which are generally easier.....or even....try a ramispina...which IMO is a very underrated species. It is among my favorite species and can be a sight to behold if grown well. its also a very friendly and easy highlander to start with.

    You need to mention these are impossible to find anymore.
    Unless you want a seed grown sibling of Red Dragon. Same grex = close enough, right?

    My jaq is my favorite plant! It grows quite fast, and as long as the humidity is over 50% it pitchers! granted, it has acclimated for a few months, but still. You could adapt it to nearly everything, but i wouldn't risk it so soon into your cp obsession. As everyone else is saying, start lower. If you like the flared peristome look, try the "flared peristome" version of maxima!

    I still have no Idea where you would ever find one.
    And if there's one thing you've taught us, it's that seed grown is the best.

    I've got 2 cuttings. One's rooted, one isn't. I posted it in the trading section just a few days ago and no one seemed to want it.
