    ok the best kind to get is N. x ventrata. its EXTREMLY easy and quick growing also inexpensive. it will thrive in a variety of conditions but make sure humidity is high(above 60%) and temps above 65*. for me it was very forgiving(its making a new pitcher yay). oh and use distilled water.

    oh and i would use(depending on the size of the plant) insects for food. the pellets in my experience give great results but your pitchers wont last long at all (2 days after you feed it) you can get crickets at a pet shop.

    Buy a nepenthes at your local garden centers. They are often cheap and easy. Try to adjust it to low humidity. If you dont make pitchers put it a little brighter and increase humidity.
    For feeding just put it outside in summer. In winter you can buy some small crickets to feed it with. If you have any pitchers left as they usually die off in winter due to low light and humidity.

    For further info visit this website.

    Get a Ventrada. I have one and it seriously could care less what conditions it is in. My ventrada has survived months of 106+ temps and 12% humidity and came out like a champ. Oh and feed it with bugs, they work the best.

    Note ImWindPlant lives in Mexico(according to profile).
    What part of Mexico?
    Joel's site deals with growing outdoors in San Diego, CA.
    I was looking at average temps for Acapulco, as an example:

    January April July October
    Location High Low High Low High Low High Low
    Acapulco (Mexico) 87 72 87 73 89 77 89 77

    Those are pretty good lowland temps and I have no idea of what the humidity is like.
    Now that is growing outdoors, but if you are growing indoors, you can control the climate more.
    Where do you live and where are you growing your plants?


    Cheers,

    Joe
