    My vote would be for N. ventricosa. This plant is pretty much indestructable.

    my first ever was a N. rafflesiana from here

    its growing quite nicely!, i would suggest a raff as they can take cold and warm temps, they can take up to 35 F(with out frost) for a week, but its not that good, if the temps with it get low like 70 at night its fuine, but it likes warm temps, i got 2 of these now [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    my first one has white pitchers and barlely any of specks, and the second one i got about 3 weeks ago when it makes a new pitcher its all speckled, and both are from pft

    i would suggest N. Rafflesiana

    heres some additional care instructions

    I agree with Pyro, N. Ventricosa is the most forgiving and can some take big changes in environment fine. Rafflesiana is easy too but Ventricosa is easier.

    You might also try the extremely easy N. alata, or khasiana.

    I vote for N khasiana too, as it grows super fast for me, even under lowland conditions. N ventricosa is near indestructible, but I think N khasiana is a more graceful plant. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]
