    Nepenthes sibuyanensis

    would a Nepenthes sibuyanensis be good for a windowsill plant? i dont know if this type of nepenthes is picky about humidity.
    i just love the little round and tubby look that it has.

    Most people agree that this species does need higher humidity than most others to pitcher. My N. sib basel is the only one that pitchers for me. So I would say they wouldnt be a good windowsill plant.

    I'd say gymnamphora is a good bet, even though I've never grown it myself. It's supposed to be a relatively slow, but easy intermediate plant.

    Nepenthes sibuyanensis is tricky when you start to mess with the temps. I grew my first one as a highland for a year and then as an ultra-lowland for about 6 months.

    It bolted as a lowland and then mysteriously died, probably because it wasn't watered enough or something.

    x Ventrata does pretty well compared to the rest of the neps I've tried.

    how about

    N. alata x ventrata
    how long would it take for 1 pitcher to grow if it had no pitcher at all?

    out of those 3 plant.
    which one would be the easiest to grow?

    Probably Ventrata is the easiest since it has the most ventricosa in it out of the three, and ventricosa is notoriously easy, and it also has hybrid vigor.

    A ventrata could probably settle into your conditions pretty quickly, like within a month, maybe two at most, but depending on if your plant is established and hardened pretty well when you buy it, it might not even skip a beat, it'll just chug out pitchers left and right.

    how long would it take for one pitcher to complete?
    there's this one vendor that's selling it in a 6" hanging pot but it currently doesnt have any pitcher. they said it would take a month or two to get a set of pitcher.
