    I have seen many threads asking what the easiest Nepenthes are, so I'll make it easier for anyone who wants to know.

    The easiest species are Nepenthes:
    ...Highland-
    alata
    ventricosa
    maxima
    sanguinea
    khasiana
    fusca
    tobaica
    spatulata
    ...Lowland-
    truncata
    rafflesiana
    reinwardtiana (i have heard stories that this can do well as a highland too)
    alata (lowland forms)
    ventricosa (though highland, it can grow here well)
    khasiana (highland, but tolerant)

    I hope i've helped you all!

    Due to the added vigor, hybrids would be even more ideal to start out with, wouldn't they? Ventrata, Miranda, etc...

    Yes, hybrids such as:
    X Ventrata
    Holland Hybrid
    Judith Finn
    and Miranda
    are also good, but i focused on just naming the blunt species.

    P.S. could a mod sticky this?

    I've found that in most forums, they don't.

    Oh, and by the way, N. sanguinea X truncata grows well anywhere.

    Seriously though, after 3 years on the forums, I have just now started using the search engine.

    I would agree with most of the plants on Dave's list but I would certainly add N. gracilis to the lowland list of easy Nepenthes.

    Maxima X ventricosa and Xventrata still rule as the weediest of all neps.
