    Like all generalisations, that is not exactly true. The most difficult plant I own is a hybrid... It depends on who the parents are.

    Question

    My gracilis has been through the most troubling of times, and has come out on top, so it gets my vote!

    I bought a ventricosa from Lowes last November. I was new to the hobby and still haven't killed it? I would put my vote in for a ventricosa. How has the first semester been going for ya? Surviving dining hall food?

    BCK,
    DOH! Growing slowly?? Gracilis?? Try warming it up a bit. Gracilis grows much more rapidly (IME) in warmer conditions.

    N. ventrata is probably a good choice, but as Tony pointed out, most are going to outgrow that container you had your eye on.
    Robin and SydneyNeps are both right on hybrids. If you pick a simple hybrid of common ancestry, you will probably do okay. If the parents are of one highland/intermediate and one lowland, you will probably have a very forgiving plant.

    Cheers,

    Joe

    AlphaWolf: thank you [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] yes i grew some on my front porch this summer... of course they reallly decided to go crazy and put out six blooms a night AFTER i went to school!!!

    lol unfortunately i'm going to need a terrarium of some kind, as it will be living in a dorm room in upstate NY for most of the year. if i ever put a tropical plant outside here it would probably laugh right before every water molecule in it crystallized and froze. any reccommendations for a relatively-easy-to-transport setup?

    and jimscott... campus food.... UUUUGGGGHHHHHHHH!!!!!!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] what i wouldn't give for a real dinner!!! hehe and my darling VFT's attract quite a lot of attention, THEY'RE eating quite well, anyway. the boys downstairs get a kick out of feeding them other than that it's study, study, study, weekend. such is the life of the bio major....
