    Help picking a nepenthe

    So I've been looking at nepenthe all day. Can anyone help me find a easy growing round or bulbous nepenthe.

    Nepenthes ampullaria is pretty bulbous. I don't know if it is easy to grow though.

    I would recommend an N. aristolochioides hybrid of some kind. They typically have little bulbous pitchers. There are N. glabrata x aristolochoides that are available in a couple places at the moment... should be a fun cross.
    LOOKING FOR: N. (argentii x bicalcarata) x {[(lingulata x edwardsiana) x (naga x hamata)] x [(klossii x undulatifolia) x (aristolochioides x rajah)]} Growlist: http://www.terraforums.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=124586

    What are your growing conditions, how large a plant can you accommodate, do you plan on maintaining Highland or Lowland climate conditions, and what is your skill level?

    N. maxima usually makes vigorous hybrids. I think there are N. maxima x aristolochioides available too. N. sibuyanensis makes bulbous pitchers as well.
