Cindy,

Thank you very much for taking the time to put this information together and posting it. It's very intresting for growers and just as interesting for suppliers too. :)/>

The list contains few surprises. There are one or 2 species not on it which I would expect to see but it could be that no-one has given feedback on them. Some clones of some highland species are so massively vigorous that they grow pretty well for us here in the lowlands too. N. spectabilis, for example isn't on the list. Has that been evaluated and found not to be successful?

Rob, no one has yet ordered any N. spectabilis. But now with your input, I'll be busy again. :lol:/>

Which other species would you suggest we try? I recently purchased the N. bongso and N. stenophllya.

Hi Cindy,

Thanks for your effort! Just one small input from me - N. Predator doesn't seem to do well in Singapore without cooling. I believe this has been the experience of several growers, not just me. :)/>

Rob,

I've tried N. spectabilis and its not too happy without cooling, but that was a plant from MT. Perhaps BE's clones are more tolerant of the heat...I may get around to trying one some time. Ditto with N. stenophllya, but again, that's MT's clone.

None of this is definitive as all of this work on cultivation is ground-breaking stuff but here's my 2 cents worth:

Cindy,
I suspect that the hairy species will not do well in hot conditions. N. stenophylla being one of those. I tried to grow it several times in Brunei in the 1980s in lowland conditions and it always gradually died. However I have no idea about N. bongso.

eybeyonder,
Just a look at N. preditor's parentage makes it an unlikely candidate for lowland cultivation. Hybrid vigour can only go so far.

Ifurita,
There's N. spectabilis and N. spectabilis. We have a lot of varieties of it (not all on commercial release yet) and find that our clone BE-3179 is so much more vigorous than any other we have tried. We call it "the ugly duckling". When immature the pitchers are very boring - we nearly discarded that clone - but boy, does it develop into something beautiful later. We haven't yet tried it in lowland conditions but I would rate it's chances of growing OK as fair. Worth a shot anyway.

When we launched BE in 1997 there was almost nil interest from Asia in Nepenthes. The situation has changed dramatically since then and we're shifting focus to try to see what you guys can grow well.

It's an exciting time to be in this hobby/business!

Rob

Rob,

Thanks for your feedback. Really appreciate your support and guidance so far. ^_^/>

I am sure the interest we see on this forum is just the tip of the iceberg!

Been a while =D

Anyway, just a small contribution:

N. Boschiana x (northiana x veitchii) and Truncata x merrilliana from EP is pitchering for me
