    I went my local garden centre at my dad's house, and saw the nepenthes there. They were all hanging from the ceiling, quite large in size, with pitchers about 2-4inches long. I looked at the price and they were 14.99 (about $18) is that worth it? And also they had what had looked like a Butterwort, but had the tinyest pitchers on the end of each leaf. they must have only been about 2 centimeters big, and look brown. Thanks in advance.

    I suggest getting a N. ventricosa. They are a hardy plant and does not require to much care. I am sure there are others but that is the only one I have and it is doing fabulous. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Hope that helps in your quest for a nep.,

    Some easy Nepenthes are:
    N. Khasiana
    N. Ventricosa
    N. Ventrata
    N. Alata (Highland Form)


    That's pretty much it, I think. Feel free add more guys and gals. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I will add:

    N.Gracilis (Lowland)
    N.Rafflesiana (10 gallon terarium or larger) (Lowland)
    N.Tobiaca (Intermediate-Highlander) Regular pruning required.
    N.Ampullaria (Lowlander)
    N.Truncata (Lowlander) Requires large area to spread in diamter and drop it pitchers off the side of the pot to the ground. But not for a while if it is still a small tissue cultrue plant.
    N.Maxima (lowland and highland forms)
