WANTED: hardy cacti - have Nepenthes (carnivorous)

I'm interested in trading one or both of these large Nepenthes plants:

N. maxima 'Broad Peristome' x 'Celebes Striped'
N. veitchii 'Bareo Highland'

They're kind of the opposite of cacti, being from southeast Asia, but are very awesome plants. These are intermediate - highland species, meaning they prefer staying between ~50 - 90 and like a decent temperature drop at night. I can email photos if you're interested.

I'm looking for hardy cacti that will tolerate the northeastern climate. I already have Opuntia humifusa and am especially interested in Echinocerus, Escobaria, Gymnocalycium, smaller Opuntias or others that might be happy here. I much prefer species to hybrids.
