    i agree with the darlingtonia idea. maybe grow it in a table top fountain so the water is always moving?
    So many plants...so little time

    Maybe a pygmy sundew spcies. You might be able to go from plant to seed and back to plants.

    Yeah, actually, my pygmy-dews go from 40*F - 100*F and just go dormant at various really cold/hot times. The hardiest I'd say are scorpioides, roseana, closely followed by helodes and omissa x pulchella. Another might include lasiantha, but I don't feel like I've had it long enough (and hence tortured it as much as the others) to really say. They're really easy to propagate and grow too - you'll be finding scorpioides and roseana growing as volunteers everywhere after having had them once.

    I would have definitely gone with Nepenthes Miranda. definitely because of the wow factor for the average individual. It is hardy, makes impressive-sized pitchers, and not too expensive. With your knowledge, it would be easy to keep and keep looking great = easy A.

    Hmmm, a pymgy sundew does sound tempting... Ultrics are kinda boring on the surface unless I can find a large clear pot.

    Go with a nepenthes, something easy but impressive. Miranda sounds good.

    I mean I guess I could, but can't grow them at home so they'll die at the end of school.
