    I Love N. Jacquelineae, perhaps my most favourite out of the favourites which include Jamban, Klossi, Edwardsiana of course, villosa, inermis, and flava.

    oh and I'mma let you finish, but N. Jacquelineae had the best pitchers of all time, of all time.

    So I would have to say that Favorite Nep of all time, never owned one or seen one in real life, but that N. argentii, is a truly awesome, miniature, highly adapted plant that has some of the potentially most interesting genetic tendencies that need to be introduced into the hobby. The one that was my little kid fantasy though, was bicalcarata, I still love bicalcarata very much, but after such a long relationship, there are so many other seductive Nepenthes out there.
    Ooh, this one seems popular. Wonder why

    Eeeek, it's hard to pick just one. They're all just amazing, guess that's why we're here
    I'm partial to the "toilet bowl " ones myself. But if I have to pick just one, I'd say inermis, it's dainty delicate and deadly

    if not, i'd love to bring in the toilets and wine shaped pitchers as well: jamban, jacq, tenuis, vogellii, platychila

    Kris: you and i both share a love for N. flava. haha.

    mine are flava, clipeata, burbidgae, and muluensis.

    side note: does anyone still hate the name flava as opposed to N. spec. nov. Sumatra?

    Glider i agree that flava is an inappropriate name for this plant, the upper pitcher on the plants are all that qualifies it seems and one or two of the clones....but we have to take in account the wild population......
    so what WOULD be a good name?
