    Nepenthes edwardsiana or hamata ?

    For you guys, what is the nicest specie ?
    Both are expensive to buy (hamata 40 or 100, eddy 150)

    Eddy is great, but for me hamata have the greatest pitchers and overall looking. What do you think?

    I have absolutely no experience with growing these plants (although I hope to get some soon ), but I think I would say edwardsiana produces cooler pitchers.

    N. edwardsiana is grossly overpriced IMO, and so I am waiting to acquire one. N. hamata is just as fantastic and much more affordable:

    hamata all the way,if you like it more and its more affordable ,also it grows much quicker than i have seen eddies grow(observing other peoples eddies ,i don't grow one)i think if you can manage nights 65 or below you will not have any trouble,mine sulked after a long period of warm nights,it still grew well but refused to pitcher for a few months,but if it pitchers for 9 months of the year in my uncontrolled conditions that is good enough for me,also my hamata clone does not seem to require very high humidity(would i am sure grow much better in high humidity,but good enough for me)

    I grow both species, and each are in a class of their own.
    N. hamata is a must have for any serious grower.
    But once you have an eddie, everyone knows you're a baller. lol
    I say grow both.. but only because I can't choose one of my plants over the other.

    I would go for hamata first. As mentioned, it is an easier species and grows more quickly (and you can get a starter plant that is bigger than 1/2 inch in diameter, unlike edwardsiana!)

    Sounds like you're already leaning towards hamata anyway, so go for it!
