    Just a note that N. inermis is a climber! It will stay relatively short for a little while as it grows larger in diameter, but even as a young plant it doesn't stay as a compact rosette.

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

    Noooo! Pick ephippiata! I love that one!
    Update: Parents convinced to allow me to keep greenhouse heated over winter. Most species will not be lost. Too lazy to update growlist.

    Just to add my (late) two round chips of copper:
    I grow both species, and I have much better luck with ephippiata, beleive it or not. The inermis does grow faster, but, at least for me, the pitcher don't last very long at all. My ephippiata pitchers are very long lived, and even though it's not a speed demon gowing wise, it never has few than four active pitchers at a time. With the inermis, I'm lucky if one pitcher lasts long enough for the next one to develope.
