    Playing Mad Scientist

    We all have parts of our favorite Nepenthes that we really like. Spots of this one, pitcher shape of this one so on and so on. I thought that it might be interesting to see what everyone dream nepenthese would be. Below is some catorgies that I can think might be able to help describe our dream plants, maybe some of you might have some other ideas. Feel free to add to the list. Use examples from plants that way everyone can get a good idea of what you are talking about.

    1 Pitcher Shape
    2 Coloration
    3 Growing Conditions
    4 Overall Plant Size
    5 Overall Pitcher Size
    6 Hairs, Teeth, other oddities

    I will go first:

    1 Short and tubby ex Bicalcarata
    2 Dark pitcher (ex N. mikei) with lots of contrasting spots, ex aristolochioides
    3 Intermediate
    4 Small leaf span 8" pitchers
    5 Lg Chicken egg to hard ball size
    6 upper Lid hairs of Hamata, lower lid hairs of lowii, fangs of Bicalarata
    teeth of Hamata, with wings like rafflesiana

    I know sounds a little lame but the more hairs and teeth the better. Now whos next

    luckily my ideal nep actually exists....it's called N. pittopangii---as far as i know the only infundibular shaped nepenthes that is molted, very similar to glabrata--but jamban shaped!

    Imagine, if you will....a plant like N.rajah....with pitchers shaped like rajah...but with the color and peristome of N.northiana.....and can tolerate household temps and humidity. THAT, is my perfect nep.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.
