    I've found spathulata to be almost bomb proof, it pitchers continuously in all sorts of conditions, both in the heat of a Sydney summer, and in the cool of winter - more regularly than some of the more 'tolerant' species such as ventricosa and sanguinea (which I find intolerant of very warm nights and low humidity together). Alata is also a consistent pitcherer.

    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    Khasiana is my ultimate windowsill favorite. In 50ish humidity, and cool nights, it will make large colorful pitchers. That was back in Champaign, IL, prarie climate. Hre in CA, I haven't had so much windowsill succsess with anything (the humidity can be rather low where I live, and the nights aren't cool enough. I can firmly say that truncata can do quite good in your climate, and you should really consider buying one.
