    Thanks

    N.Ventricosa

    OR if you have a nice humid and hot terrarium N.Gracilis.

    N.Khasiana
    N.Alata
    N.Rafflesiana-hot+humid
    N.Miribilis- hot+humid
    N.Ampullaria-hot+humid

    there are a few more but these are by far the easiest.

    Depends on your conditions but I would say for ultimate easy...

    The most easy Nepenthes out there imo
    N. xVentrata (I think its even easier than ventricosa or alata)

    also very easy and very tolerant to changing environment after an initial adjustment period.
    N. truncata
    N. khasiana (sometimes hard to find compared to the other two)

    Temps whatever you give em as long as they are warm during the day. Humidity 50-60 is fine if acclimated slowly. Bright light. Keep moist but not soggy wet. All 3 would do fine on an East or West windowsill (South too with some shading) provided the humidity is in the 50-60% range.

    If your looking into terrarium culture then you can grow many more very easily also. As Nep G has mentioned.
    Tony
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
