    Hi,

    Nice choices! But most of the plants you listed are extremely rare and expensive and hard to care for. I suugest starting off with easier species, gradually working your way into medium and hard to grow Nepenthes. For beginners plants I suggest:

    N. gracilis
    N. rafflesiana (you listed) good choice
    N. alata
    N. khasiana
    N. x Judith Finn
    N. x Ventrata
    N. ventricosa
    N. x rokko
    N. maxima
    N. ampullaria
    N. bicalcarata (if you have a LARGE warm area)
    N. tobiaca

    Cheers!

    well i know where to get all these plants from and the only one that is expensive are the N. jacquelinae. i have a large place. i live in a dorm room but it's only me in one room and the room is well very big. plus i'm quite sure by the time the plants mature i won't be in this dorm. i can deal with hard plants. but my hard to grow what do you mean? i never understand the difference b/t a hard to care for plant and an easy to care for plant. i have an N. ventricosa and another plant that is on its way is N. burbidgeae. to me all plants are hard to grow b/c if you don't take care of them they die. i dunno i never know the difference.

    An example of a difficult (hard) plant is N. villosa.

    An example of a beginner (easy) plant is N. ventricosa.

    Many Nepenthes are very hard to grow due to mostly temperature requirments. Lowlanders need very warm and humid conditions almost all the time while, Ultrahighland and Highland Nepenthes need warm day temps with very cold night temps (50-45F) and high humidity with good air flow. These plants aren't like your typical spider plant. I reccomend the following site to broaden your view of what I'm trying to say:

    I recommend n. ampullaria. Sure it might be a little harder than the easiest ones, but I'd say its pretty easy. Just keep it warm and humid and give it ok light. plus it looks really cool.

    I grow a N. x Ventrata and N. khasiana x ventricosa. I find both very easy plants. I grow them in a south facing window. Once they adjusted to the low humidity of the house they started to pitcher.
    I would love to try a N. hamata, but I do not want to spend the money for this plant and can not find anyone to trade with.

    the N. hamata i saw was $35 at one site. I just paid $65 for the N. Burbidgeae it's a name your clone seedling though and it comes with more then one of them too So I will have like 47of the N. Burbidgeae. The N. Jacquelinae that I want is $96. Heart attack!!!! I think I will wait until the summer to get that one though. I'm gonna but the less expensive ones first!!

    I know which site you're ordering the N. burbidgeae from by just the description. You wil receive 4 plants, 1 mature and about 3 seedlings, not 7.

    Did you look at the site I provided to you? I would ease off on the N. jacquelineae, I know its an awesome plant, but please, I can't stress it enough, try easier species first!
