    don't forget those easy lowlanders :
    gracilis ( grows tall and like a weed )
    rafflesiana
    truncata
    x coccinea
    x dyeriana

    i'd say go with ventricosa or x ventrata , very easy otherwise x judith finn is good as a candidate

    I've noticed two extremes in which you guys keep your plants(or perhaps you are just pulling them out for display?). One if like a normal houseplant, or in a hangin basket(ehat pops inot mind is the large bicals topic). The other extreme is in a terrarium with misters fit over it.


    Of the easier species, are their any more highly adorned species that stick out?

    I'f much prefer the plant to pitcher, so does that mean protection of sort is required?

    I viewed a couple sites....and rafflesania seems to stick out.
    1 Nxventrata

    D. muscipula & D. muscipula 'Red Dragon'(barely)

    Sarracenia leucophylla(seedling)

    S. purpurea and Drosera filiformis filiformis/ intermedia seeds waiting to sprout.

    Drosera capensis

    Go to neps around the house's site, neps around the house. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] I think that may have something on where to grow them. Most neps need high humidity, though. (such as in a grow chamber, etc. People do use ultrasonic humidifiers, too.) I dont think a plant will pitcher in low humidity.

    I agree with almost everyone else, try N. x Ventrata first.
    It is easy to grow and pitchers profusely. The pitchers have a beautiful red appearance in bright sunlight.

    I find N. rafflesiana is more choosy in its location and doesn't seem to pitcher as often, although 1 of my rafflesiana now has 4 pitchers.
    Happy growing, Neil.
    A 'pitcher gallery' is where the art is drawn by Mother Nature and a 'pitcher says a thousand words'.

    Not bad!

    Do you have any photos of the pitcher mouth?

    I also forgot to mention, that mine sometimes has "flares" in the peristome where it makes points. Lately it has been making pitchers more characteristic of ventricosa though.
