    Here's a really nice chart I found a while back. Recommend you look at it thoroughly and compare to your conditions (once you find out what they are).

    Nepenthes Altitudinal Distribution and Temperature Chart

    Thats classification of nepenthes tempermental Tolerances/conditions. Not species. Lowland is not a species.

    LIKE I SAID, research the plant you want and mimic the environment it comes from.
    Simple as that. If you want lowlanders, make a lowland chamber. Same for highland.

    Thanks but If I do like one of the plants on the list I dont think that people will have that plant if I were to ask them.

    Rareraven: the Terraforums Classifieds on this site has a handful of species and hybrids of Nepenthes for sale, you can look those up directly, contact the sellers perhaps to find out what the necessary growing conditions are, and you can go from there. But, as others have said, investment in some form of condition control (i.e. a very large terrarium or tank OR a small greenhouse; mine fits in my living room) is going to be almost certainly necessary, especially if your natural conditions do not have temperature swings.
    Most hybrid Nepenthes will tolerate wide ranges of conditions, from lowland to highland, but even they require some form of nighttime temp drop from the daytime highs to do well. Most hybrid Nepenthes are also relatively inexpensive, averaging $15-30 apiece; you're only going to find the high prices for rare hybrids like N. x briggsiana 'Peter D'Amato' or the rare species like villosa, edwardsiana, tenuis, etc. Stay focused on the easier hybrids. And don't worry if they have a parent plant that seems common. My Sunset Songs grex, for example, does have ventricosa as a parent, for example, but the offspring range in appearance from almost a slender 'Red Leopard'-type plant to something that looks like a colorful Indochinese species; only things like vent's scalloped peristome actually show through from that parent.
    Also, as mentioned, Google or the search function in this forum is your friend. Nearly everything you need to look up has already been typed out and posted a hundred times over.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.

    And, if you do want species, and find one that will fit your conditions, believe me: someone on these forums probably has it, and if you're willing to work with them they may have something to spare. I know people on these forums from my own state even that have just about every Nepenthes species (and seemingly hybrid) in existence, so the easier ones are definitely not out of reach.

    Lol True, haha. I knew what i meant but apparently i should choose a different word that everyone Will understand. Pretty tired from explaining stuff to the OP in our PM conversations last night about everything everyone is talking About...ahrg.

    So OP Choose only one Classification (HL, LL or intermediate)..not all types.
