    I just bought a N.Alata for 14.95. It looks good, has all healthy pitchers and has 2 plants in one pot. Both plants have roughly 10 pitchers on aswell [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] I'm happy [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Yes! I think it was a good deal! The pitchers are actually quite large, I'd say biggest being 6 inches. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Man,
    Where do you guys find all these cool plants....?

    I go to Home depot. VFT's. Local nurseries. NOTHING (well, with one exception...they have little pot of horrors. These are really little guys. You're lucky if there's ONE pitcher on a nep). There's no Lowes near me...Any one every find them at Dill's Best? Never been in there...

    Wow, 6 inches? That's huge for what you paid [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
    Got any pictures of it?

    Schloaty, I've never seen any Neps in any Home Depot or Lowe's, HD only carries plants from Booman Floral, at least the ones I visited.

    Schloaty the Little pot of Horrors Neps are x Judith Finn hybrid I have several. They grow biggest and best in an intermediate/highland setup. In my lowland they don't do as well. Once you get them out of the local nursury and put them in good conditions at your house they'll start growing good. I got one about 2" across in Jan/Feb and now it's 10-12" across with it's first 3" pitcher which has a very wide dark purple peristome and lime green pitcher body starting to make a very neat looking plant! The best selection of neps is online and with the Priority mail service you'll have your plants in 2-3 days. I still look at local nursuries and greenhouses but online you can get the rarest and most interesting species plants for great prices (PFT included). PM me if you want a few links to places I've shopped online.

    Thumbs up

    Swords,
    I actully bought most of my stuff on line (or traded for it). I was just lamenting. It's really cool to go into a store and just see them sitting there... begging for a good home... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
