    I've been thinking about buying a few nepenthes, and i'd like a recommendation on which one would be best. I'm looking for a large, colorful type. Preferably if the uppers are also colorful.

    I'm trying to decide between these:
    N. diatas,
    N. fiazaliana,
    N. mira,
    N. densiflora,
    and N. sibuyanensis.

    Could you guys help me out?
    Thanks,
    Dave

    Yes, i agree, but whether to get it now or later is another story, i'll wait for a few more replies to make my descision. I have send an e-mail to Tony asking if he has some in stock.

    I'd wait on the N. jaquelineae unless you want to burn a hole in your pocket...and I mean a BIIIIG hole. I'd go with the N. faizaliana, its a nice plant, similar to N. fusca, colorful and fairly compact.

    I'd say the ones with the most interesting uppers will be jacquelineae, faizaliana and diatas (forest form).

    How difficult to care for is diatas, and how large does it get?

    N. jacquelineae has been stricken from the list, it's just too darn expensive.

    N. diatas is a more cooler growin highland plant...pretty much an ultrahighlander, but it does fine with the regular highlands, at least my form has, and its "meadow" form. Has flowered and is making seed even!

    So, it can grow comfortable wherever a rajah, or macrophylla will thrive? If so, my rajah and macrophylla are very happy, and i guess i'll buy myself a diatas.

    Thanks a lot!
