    Edit, I forgot about N. x 'Judith Finn', it's nearly indestructible. But again, if miranda isn't "showy" enough, I doubt this guy will make the cut.

    I grew a lowii x boschiana and a sanguinea on a window sill after a short acclimation period. I think the latter is pretty cool but just another suggestion. Most EP hybrids are extremely tolerant as well. If he wanted something really showy I would look at some of those.

    Shame your friend didn't think of this a month earlier, we just missed a really nice shipment of huge EP plants to an unnamed distributor in the US. The downside is, large EP plants are pretty expensive, without even counting the customs and phytosanitary fees...I have to admit though, nothing impresses a colleague more than a huge N. truncata x merrilliana lounging on the windowsill!

    Hmm since you don't like big beautiful deep red/burgundy blotched pitchers of N Miranda...... Truncata Pasian Highland - get a large specimen b/c they grow slowly but produce giant green & red pitchers usually with striped peristome. Veitchii Highland - Gorgeous wide peristome usually striped with green & pink pitchers. N. Viking - Nice round pitchers & cheap but needs acclimation. Veitchii pink is one of my favorites. Ive had all 3 as window plants producing pitchers. I had them on water trays with pebbles so no water reached the bottom of the pots. 2-3 per big pot for more pitchers.

    Im just as shocked as every1 that you do not think Miranda is showy. Have you ever owned a fully grown N Miranda? They are enormous with many pitchers around 6-7 inches in my experience. Just saying... =P
