    First of all, where do you guys see "jacquelineae"[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    I would get the densiflora or diatas for sheer color. But sibuyanensis has gorgeous pitchers.

    I edited it out of my first post after it was stricken from the list.

    Densiflora or Diatas then. I think sib has pitchers that are too much resemble a large ventricosa.

    Is diatas any more fragile than rajah or macrophylla? If not, then i'll get that. Which one gets larger btw? Also which form of diatas would you recommend meadow, or forest?

    Densiflora is a bit more difficult to grow than Diatas.
    However, faizaliana should be the easiest of all these.

    Densiflora is MORE difficult? I doubt that. Diatas is an ultrahighlander, densiflora isn't. Or is there something i don't know about densiflora?

    Don't doubt anything you're unsure of. N. densiflora, for me is a slow grower and picky pitcher-er. N. diatas, on the other hand pitchers every single leaf and is, pretty much a weedy plant. Secondly, plants that you will be getting of N. densiflora, won't be very large, so you may want that as a second reason to get N. diatas, mine has already flowered and is setting new hybrid seed as we speak, and I got it on 7/8/2003

    I would go with N. mira or N. densiflora.

    I would agree that N. densiflora is a little more difficult then N. diatas but not enough to make that the deciding factor.

    I don't really think N. diatas is a untrahighlader it comes from 2400M-2600M but my clones do not seem to mind a little warmer weather. N. densiflora comes from 1700M-3000M so it has a much wider range.

    thanks

    I'm not in the mood for taking care of more picky ones. I'll get a diatas. Which form would you guys recommend?
