    Update: Parents convinced to allow me to keep greenhouse heated over winter. Most species will not be lost. Too lazy to update growlist.

    The Hose Mtn veitchii was more bristly than hairy, but i would have to agree that the purple/black (they are the same?) form of albomarginata is the hairiest- or fuzziest, anyway. It's very fine fuzz.

    The interesting thing is, most of these plants people have listed are all together on the windowsill because they seem to tolerate low humidity well. Particularly the albomarginata. Probably not a coincidence.

    Although... ampullaria has a pretty fuzzy leaves, too. At least the one growing on my windowsill. Hmm.

    My hairiest plant has gotta be a N. glandulifera. Besides looking like a green tarantula, its sprinkled with black peppercorns or poppy seed everywhere!

    N. pilosa x vietchii, by far - although I don't really have any other hairy Neps. The hairs are 5+ mm long on the underside of the leaf. When I drop ants in the terrarium, they usually end up climbing the newest tendril of this plant and getting stuck at the end where they can't turn back for all the hairs.
