    Hey guys, I thought I'd make a new thread about neps that you dislike or don't really care to own. We all know what you do liike, thats an easy thing but I don't think I've seen a thread where we disscussed what we don't really like.

    I know its hard to say which ones we don't like because frankly all neps are cool but lets put it this way;

    What nepenthes would you not pay money to buy?

    For me I think its the following,

    N. x ventrata
    N. x Judith Finn
    N. tobaica


    Those are the only three I can think of off the top of my head. Theres definatly more I wouldn't pay for...

    Sarracenia leucophylla(seedling)

    S. purpurea and Drosera filiformis filiformis/ intermedia seeds waiting to sprout.

    Its hard to say since there are alot that I wouldn't pay money for, but I can't take care of most of them either. Such as aristo., or hamata, villosa, veitchii 'high', truncata 'high', jaqc, etc...... I can't care for them so i wouldn't pay triple digits for a plant I'll kill. BUT..............
    I know what you meant and can't think of any I'd refuse for free.

    Hi Flip,

    why do you dislike N. tobaica?

    Dark red colour forms also exist.

    Cheers Joachim

    HA I knew someone would say something to the extent of what was said.... hehehe

    Perhaps I should be more specific, I like ventricosa and I like alata, I just don't like ventrata. Infact the boschiana mimic's are some of my favorites. I also like spathulata and veitchii just not the hybride of the two (judith finn)

    and tobaica, while you have a nice plant, it just doesn't do anything for me. Plus they are so mass produced in some situations the availble plants are low quality....

    The mass market "N. tobaica" is not the real thing. Its a mislabeled hybrid from N. ventricosa and perhaps N. khasiana! Joachims picture shows the real N. tobaica.

    It is just like all those mislabeled N. x ventratas which were sold as N. alata during the past 15 (or so) years.

    yea I realize that those mass market ones aren't the real thing but they look pretty ding dang close to the real all green ones. Joachim's is indeed a nice plant but I still don't really like it. Strange isn't it? Its not like its has super distinct features that set itself apart from most neps its pretty generic looking, it just dosn't appeal to me and I'd probly never buy one [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    I have something to say about N. tobaica too![img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    This is the N. tobaica I have experience growing. Like JanW said, the mass market ones are N. 'Emmarene'. Sure, these are all green and have no spectacular feature (they do have nice coloration INSIDE though, [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img] ), though they do have the nice genetics of branching alot and grappling onto anything the surroundings provide (like the trellis I made for it). I also think the red ribs contrast well with the green background.

    As for Neps I wouldn't buy, I'd have to name only one so far, which is N. coccinea: the pitcher walls are really papery - I tend to prefer the woody ones... I find there's nothing really spectacular about this hybrid other than the colour.

    To each his/her own!

    Amori
