    Nepenthes ampullaria, because I love the basal pitchers and N. glabrata because of it's small size and colourful pitchers.

    AH comeon guys.... stop complaining with the name of N. flava. Just because all of the clones in cultivation are red doesn't necessarily mean that Andreas witnessed that in-situ, the upper pitchers of this species are mostly yellow. Besides its just a name.

    I agree vraev. It's just a name and perfectly fine at that. Andreas did all the field work so he can call it what ever he desires.

    I really like truncata and its hybrids. Though when I was younger and really "in the hobby" my favorite was N. fusca, I loved the hairy growth and short, thick leaves.

    Favorite neps? The ones that grow well for me, of course!

    LOL!

    Joking asside: burbidgeae, campanulata, jacquelenae and aristolochioides...and maybe some of those gigantic hybrids (you know those photos you see next to 2 litre bottles? THOSE - trunc x northiana or whatever....maybe it was trunc x merriliana or north x merry....whatever....just HUGE and colorful).

    Also rapidly growing on me is x 'Marbled Dragon.' Easy grower. Very large, very showy pitchers.

    Yes, it's really plain and common, but I love Nepenthes Ventrata. When I was in 6th grade, I was getting into carnivorous plants, and in the school library, they had a biology book with this exact picture of a "monkey cup". It has since become my favorite Nepenthes.

    My personal favorite is N. Muluensis x Lowii. I love the color and the toothy mouth.

    Good to see someone agrees Phil. I have seen too many posts of people mocking N. flava and just don't understand why it gets blown out of proportion. It is a beautiful name and it represents the plant in-situ very accurately.

    Anyways...how are those N. rajah coming along? Did u ever have one of your younger ones replace the "mantle" that the large one occupied?
