    Tough?

    Hello, in everyone's opinion, what would be the hardiest, quickest and most easily grown of all Nepenthes. I should think it would be one of the hybrids, correct? I know these kind of terms don't normally relate to Nepenthes, but the thing is, I live in a Mediterranean climate and was looking for something that could be grown outside in a shade house (50%). I grow orchids and other exotics in there and they all seem to be doing well, so what do you guys suggest?

    anything highland should do well around orchids except if it gets to hot above 90. ventricosa or rafflesiana is a great place to start

    Things like truncata, ventalta, or raff should be fine as long as they do not get extremely hot.

    N. ventrata, N. raffelsiana are good. Also N.khasiana has proven to be very hardy for me.
