    N. Peter D'amato cultivation?

    Hey all.

    I recently found out about the nepenthes hybrid 'Peter D'amato' and was wondering how difficult it is to care for. I know that it's a cross between lowii and ventricosa and thought that it's ventricosa genes might mean that it's fairly easy to care for. Anyone who grows this hybrid, what's your experience?

    I have two plants I grow it in typical HL conditions and its not fussy at all, and its a pretty fast grower too. It gets monthly maxsea, and aside from that I don't do anything special for it.

    Thanks for the help, but I looked up the price and found out that it was WAY more expensive than I expected. But it's good to know that they're not picky. Again, thanks.

    'Peter D'Amato' is a cultivar, not a x briggsiana variant, and yes, I've never seen it go for less than $200. Most ventricosa hybrids tend to be very hardy no matter the other parent, but intermediate-highland conditions would certainly be best for this cross
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    I saw one for $154 on eBay and intermediate to highland conditions was what I saw in my research. Thanks for the help, even if it will only be a dream for a while.

    didn't realize that Carlton, thanks , I'll edit my post to avoid confusion.

    Yeah I don't understand why they're so expensive considering its fairly easy going and not really that slow to put on size. I've only had mine for about a year and got them as barely rooted cuttings and one is already putting out a basal.

    You may want to look for a ventricosa x epiphiata. Very similar and super easy, I got mine for $40 from Ryan Georgia a while back.

    Not as colorful though. But still nice. Mine is an orangeish green color with red markings.

    My only neps so far are a ventrata and a death box ventricosa, so I don't mind. I'll look into it. Thanks.
