    I'll second, or third or whatever 'bout the spectabilis. I've found they can be touchy. Mine needs lots and lots of light to pitcher consistently, and consistent temp drops at night.

    Good choice on the Maxima bud. I was shipped this hunk of crap that had like a tiny bit of roots attached to some twigs and dried foliage, so I clipped it back and look what sprouted out!

    This is actually my favorite plant that I'm rooting for in my collection now!

    sweet! I mihgt actually switch the maxima for a copelandii, because the cop is a lot cheaper. (maxima is $40, cope is $25.. but the maxima is a large plant and the cop is a small) I'm gonna see if I can get a maxima from montreal at this thing... I donno what it's called. :P

    I have one more question: would diats or densiflora do well on a windosill? to me they looks picky for some reason......

    I hear diatas is picky no matter what, and I think densiflora wants a good regular temp drop every night to thrive.

    Honestly I think copelandii in addition to the other two you plan on getting is the best choice for you (having been an exclusively window sill grower for a year now).

    I've heard that diatas is hard to grow for no plain reason (some say its harder than hamata/rajah) and densiflora, according to some, is not much better. Personally, diatas, densiflora, and singalana look just about the same to me, and singalana is a lot easier to grow.

    Yeah, IIRC, densiflora comes from the higher altitudes of what's considered highland, so temps drops should be a must.

    Devon...I don't have any of those species...(except ramispina), but if I can suggest something...wait till the end of summer man. Especially for windowsill growing, you realize temps are rising very much now in canada. Those plants will not like the hot night temps. Just wait till autumn and you can grow any of those (stenophylla..if I had to choose) with considerable success.
