    Big Choice N. Lady pauline, Aristo x Spec, Singalana

    Hey everyone, There is a big order coming soon from Borneo Exotics, to a Canadian Retailer. After a rather large list, I've Norrowed it to 3 neps, N. Lady Pauline, N Aristolochioides x Spectabilis, and N. Singalana. They are all highlanders, that will grow with my ventricosa and Heli's, humidity is never below 75%


    So what do you recommend for me? Please let me know of your opinions.

    Can't you just get all three? :x Lady Pauline can easily grow on a windowsill.

    Lady Pauline will thrive in basic highland or even intermediate conditions, should grow well for you. You'd probably be okay with aristoxspect, since BE probably used their beastly and easy to grow "North Sumatra" spectabilis. Everyone seems to have a different view on Singalana, but it should be treated as a true highlander, gotta have those nighttime temp drops and high humidity (75% should be fine)
    Insanity is a sane response to an insane world.

    Bepfreak, you make a good point, I am more inclined to Aristo x Spect and Lady Pauline, but if I had to choose between the two, i'd choose lady pauline since its easy to grow. I f I can get both I will, but they are 40 Canadian each plus all the extra charges.


    Thanks again!

    That's a tough one. I have all three, and I really like all three. My singlana is showing impressive colors and a nicely flared peristome while still fairly small. My spec x aristo is very vigorous and has great dark colors, but also still kinda small so not sure what the mature pitchers will look like. My Lady Pauline is tough as nails, and I love the pitchers. Great color, huge flared peristome, tubby pitcher...hmm I guess out of all three I like the Pauline the best at this time, but she is also a big plant so I have mature pitchers.

    But if you can't afford the both of them, I'd go with the Aristo X spect if I were you.

    It's just such an incredible plant with really great coloration.

    I'd go with lady pauline. Very adaptable, great coloration, easy to care for, incredible plant.
