    I like big wings and I cannot lie

    For some reason, I find myself attracted to Nepenthes with big wings on the front of the pitchers like N. rafflesiana such as seen here:
    [IMG]http://www.**********.com/catalog/giaraff_u9M.jpg[/IMG]
    It's even better if they're also spiky! More spikes can (for me) make up for being smaller as they still have a good visual impact.

    N. 'viking' (mirabilis var globosa) also seems to have fairly prominant wings.

    What are some other species with big wings? Which ones are considered fairly easy growers?

    Thanks!

    N.distillatoria has some fairly prominant wings....it is an easy LL nep.

    N. tomoriana also has serious wingyness.....ans is also an easy LL,
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    db: Not my plant though. At some point, everyone should be able to get it from Exotica Plants in Australia.
