    I agree with Ngantnier, get a Ventricosa x Ephippiata instead, a poor man's x Briggsiana and an easier growing one

    IMO N. 'Peter D'amato' (in terms of price) is hugely a gimmick when you compare the same amount of capital that you could spend on some way more interesting/valuable genetics as far as Nepenthes are concerned. It's a neat hybrid, but I have never understood why cuttings routinely hit the $100+ mark. It is baffling to me.

    Anything with lowii tends to be extra expensive, and beautiful. I agree that it is overpriced. To me a rooted cutting of regular x briggsiana should be around $80 with the 'Peter D'amato' clone going for maybe $120. It is a nicer clone from what I've seen with richer color.

    Has anyone seen an upper from ventricosa x ephippiata yet? Or is the cross too new. Mine is just starting to vine and recently threw a basal.

    I saw it yesterday, and while you can get most of it in other crosses, it's more of a pride of ownership with the plant than anything objective. It's a fantastic plant to watch, I visit the nursey to check in on it and itll pitcher even in the hottest or coldest months
