Hi all, I recently but in a little order @ roraima.pl for some nepenthes for my xmas present, however suffice to say I didn't quite get what I ordered. instead of a variety of hybrids with spathulata I have instead ended up with the following:

N. reinwardtiana

N. sibuyanensis

N. rafflesiana

N. maxima "wavy leaf"

N. vogelii

N. ventricosa x dubia

now, I know reinwardtiana and raff. are easy as pie and grow just fine around the house, however what of the others? I'm hoping the hybrid in there inherits ventricosa's easy to grow genes but outside of that I really have no idea what to expect from any of them so any tips RE their care would be massively appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Nice list of plants you got there. I was thinking of getting the Nepenthes maxima wavy leaf myself but how good is the nepenthes you got from them? As I normally get all my plants from http://www.hantsflytrap.com/

they were generally in good health on arrival, though the raff has a very poor root system IMO and I hardly got any of my original order. I wouldn't go rushing to switch from matt soper's excellent service if I were you.
