    House Plant hybrids

    I'm familiar with which species make good house plants, but what hybrids do you recommend for growing on windowsills or under lights indoors? And not ventrata or miranda because I know of those already.

    My N. 'Lady Pauline' is really easy on a windowsill, and would work under lights too. I find that N. spectabilis x aristolochioides also works nicely.

    Some species FYI that work nicely are N. sanguinea, N. truncata and N. veitchii (a highland one). Of course I'd say most ventricosa hybrids would do fine aswell.

    Anything with maxima, ventricosa, or maybe sanguinea in it.

    For a species, N. burkei works amazingly! Look for crosses between lowlanders and highlanders. They'll have intermediate requirements, which is what you want.

    Thanks for all the info everyone.
    Wireman, I figured highland/lowland cross would be a good one. I'm on the look out for merrilliana crosses. Wish I had a Sanguinea. I've heard they make good house plants. I don't have any of those beginner species like ventricosa and sanguinea. Not big on maximas but I had some seeds sprout so I guess I'll have some soon.

    Albomarginata is a good house plant? I'm surprised. I wouldn't have thought so because they are lowlands. Well perhaps I'll bring one of mine into the house.

    I grow the red form outdoors in the summer, and indoors during the cool months...does fantastic.
