    Hey all,
    I'm back! Looking for some good highland or intermediate plants that are good for windowsills. There are so many scientific names that I've forgotten a search isnt helping me much. But I'm thinking I want to get an aristolochiodes and then a few more vigorous plants. The kind that like vine all over the place in your average 60% humidity 70s during the day 50s or 60s at night bedroom. What kind of hybrids are there that fit this bill and are really cool and unique looking. Please help a veteran learn how to walk once again.

    How are the talangensis? I remember this as being the plant I was going to get next before I quit cold turkey. The prices are SO LOW compared to when I was in the market. Tony has a few plants I've got my eye on, the huge eymae being one of them. But they need it super humid, or no?
    I am back..

    if you dont mind hybrids and can find them, Rokko and Ile de France have proven to be weeds. veitchii x eymae(might be the reverse cross) might work but its large.

    if yah have the funds and can find it, jaquelineae x izumae is proving to be more vigorous for me than bongso(another one good for window sill culture) in similar conditions

    Alex is correct.
    I do grow a N. hamata, N. rajah, N. rafflesiana, and N. Rokko clone A x N. hamata as windowsill plants.
    I also have N. aristolochioides and N. bicalcarata in a terrarium. The bical is about to come out of the terrarium to be a windowsill plant. The N. aristolochioides I want to be bigger before I move it out.

    The plant is still small. I posted this picture over a month ago here.
