    My botany teacher is giving me a chance to grow any plant I want.

    Of course I want a really good carnivorous plant, but not something that will be impossible like D.Regia. This is important for it will be a both a grade but she is also willing to pay for it and wait a few weeks for shipping!
    It will be grown in a greenhouse. The temperature will be 70-80s. The humidity will be 60+. It will be a Nepenthes.

    How about some Cephalotus? Kind of expensive but not that hard to grow bugs notwithstanding of course.

    I don't think that will fly considering the green house is attacked by bugs all the time.

    It might be impressive to show how to actually grow a venus flytrap. Almost everyone has killed one or two. Maybe a big large-trap form.

    Really? I seem to be succeeding somehow.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    I would advise picking something hardy, and not terribly expensive. Teachers don't get much pay. Just sayin'. It is awesome to be given a chance at getting almost anything, congrats! But it would be terribly disappointing to loose the plant due to pests, greenhouse malfunction, or careless or malicious hands. Perhaps a fancy Sarracenia, one that you don't already have, or Nepenthes. (You don't like Neps? Shucks! Missing out!) How about Utricularia longifolia, Drosera indica (wild, wild plant), hmmm...... a Mexican Pinguicula, Darlingtonia californica mountain form.....
