    Hello,
    Just 1? Wow, I would have to go with N. Villosa, I love the peristome!
    For one that I own, it would be N. Xiphioides. I love the egg shaped orange pitchers!

    Get back with me once I find a way to grow every single lowland plant that I can fit under the pergola. It truly is unfair to have to pick. It's the comparisons and differences that makes each one so special.

    Rafflesiana is a really beautiful and diverse variety. Alata or ventrata have very elegant pitchers -- not to mention all the types of alatas. Bicalcarata makes the cobra lily look tame. Ampullaria is weird, but cool weird. Miranda is impressive in terms of size, some of the top leaves and pitchers get HUGE, to me anyway. Coccicinea makes really nice red color, and mine is starting to get healthy and grow like a weed -- so I love it! Etc.

    I think we get just a bit [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rolleyes.gif[/img] emotionally invested in our plants. Hence, sometimes the cheapest little plant is the best, if you nursed it back to health or something similar. OK, maybe a LOT emotionally invested sometimes. If you celebrate each new growth point, you might have a problem. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    Well its very, very, VERY hard to chose a favorite cuz there are sooooooo many awesome ones to chose! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] But I will go with my all time favorite, but forbidden, n. hamata. Why forbidden you ask? Well, lets just say I can't handle highland nepenthes [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] And my favorite owned is the n. maxima 'lowland' ,but its new to me so I'm starting to get used to it [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Ugh. That post was typo city. I blame my keyboard. I have some Neps pretty close to what I spelled them anyway. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    I promise to post pics of some Cantley's Reds I'm getting and to relay anything I learn. I'm going off the lowland deep end. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I don't think I'll ever be able to simulate highland conditions in Florida outside. Which, all things considered, is probably a good thing. There are enough lowland plants for one lifetime.

    Dear all:


    Please don't get me wrong!!. I love hamata very much, but I don't see why it is better than N. macrophylla or edwardsiana.

    I Just saw N. tenuis and it is a very beautiful plant, but N. jacquelinae is even better!!. Oh what the heck!!. If i see them all at once in a shop I'll empty the #### shop.!!.

    I think for me the most diabolical looking plant in the greenhouse right now is the N. hamata. If I had a large N. macrophylla or beter yet a N. edwardsiana then perhaps my pick might be different. Then again maybe not.. hard to beat the speed which N. hamata grows and puts out pitchers as well as the coloration, display on the plant and the wild looking teeth.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
