    Thanks for your help. I will look into getting a couple of T5's and a small aquarium.

    Does anyone have any suggestions to super hardy Nepenthes? Ones that will take a little heat and low humidity?

    Truncata would be a good plant for a hot dry place if you don't mind the slow growth rate.

    The N. ventricosa is super hardy compared to many other neps. N. alata and N. Judith Finn (a hybrid of N. spathulata and N. veitchii) are also pretty hardy. I grow my N. ventricosa outside during the summer hanging from the branch of my apple tree. It gets a bit of dappled sun through the leaves and a lot of indirect sun. It handles temps from 40F and into the low 90s with no problem. My humidity can get down to 15% RH, but is usually between 25% and 35%. I top water them and keep the soil moist.

    N. ventrata is about the easiest of Neps.
