Hello Office Workers!
I was recently asked to find a showy Nepenthes that reliably produces pitchers in a somewhat sunny office environment. The requestee has no real experience with carnivorous plants and would prefer not to have a terrarium. Supplemental light is a possibility, but the main light source would be a sunny windowsill. Humidity would not be very high. And I already remarked that, in our climate, in winter, the plant - whatever it is - would likely not produce many pitchers unless frequently misted. Temps are fairly constant but can range from 60 to 80 depending on whether the heat or AC is on, and, obviously, localized temperatures will vary depending on the strength of the sun through the window, the nearness of warm computers, etc.
The preference is to acquire a plant that's already somewhat large. I already suggested ventrata and Miranda, but was asked for something "showier" that wasn't so "boring." I was wondering what any of you with offices grew in those offices?
One suggestion I saw while searching old discussions was "thorelli" x aristo. It looks like it would tolerate those conditions. Thoughts?
