    for me neps arent tht fascinating, of course i would still love to have an N. Aristolchoides, or N. Inermis, but i like sarras best for now since hey're so widespread and easy to tell apart, although when i visited jeremiahs greenhouse, there were some pretty interesting plants

    Hahahahaha I agree!!!

    I'm thinking of other Neps I wouldn't pee on to put out a fire.....
    All other crosses that resemble N. coccinea I think. Those and some really boring Koto crosses (despite my being a Japanese citizen . How unpatriotic of me! ) that all look like a slightly nicer version of the dullest N. mirabilis.

    Flip has an interesting thread here. I can see both sides, but I am on the "Like them all, especially when well-grown" side.
    Even a plain green N. gracilis that has been whacked and is a bushy monster with dozens of pitchers is really cool looking.

    Cheers,

    Joe

    You do have some kind of point there....

    while I do like some of the kotos, I agree they'll are pretty plain looking.

    I know what you mean, Amori. The 'Koto' hybrids do get a bit "tedious". Still, some of the best hybrids are from Japan. My favorites being Minami'Triumph', Fukukusa, Tomomi, Nagoya, Oiso...I'm sure I'm forgetting a few.
    Flip, I agree to some extent. The Neps I personally favor the least are the ones that take over the grow space because they're such weeds. It's more because they're a pain in the neck rather than lacking aesthetic value. We sell at a lot of the local plant shows, which attracts the local "plant people", most of them have seen just about everything and are often jaded in their attitude. When they see a well grown Nepenthes, even a ventrata, it will evoke a "Wow!"
