    Hardiest Nepenthes

    Which Nepenthes species are probably the easiest to grow under any conditions. Such as capensis of nepenthes. I'm trying to find a nep that can do well in very low to no humidity

    No nepenthes does well in low humidity. But, the hardiest nep IMHO has to be n. gracilis. This plant is actually tougher than d. capensis. I've had my gracilis survive in conditions that killed capensis.

    I have probably seen Nepenthes ventricosa take more punishment and come back for more than any other species -- and have seen them produce pitchers under even terrible conditions . . .

    Given my ( until recently ) less than stellar track record with plants, my Lady Pauline (I know,not a species, but a hybrid ) has laughed in the face of the adversity I've thrown it.....

    I beg to differ herm, my tuncata, lady pauline, ventricosa, sanguinea, and N. x Mixta do very well on my windowsill where average humidity is 20%

    But that doesn't men all nepenthes can handle these conditions.

    Most of my neps get very low humidity in the winter and grow well with some exceptions.
