    Truncata is a very nice, durable one (but mine STILL died after the greenhouse tipped).
    Update: Parents convinced to allow me to keep greenhouse heated over winter. Most species will not be lost. Too lazy to update growlist.

    Dustin mentioned a fine, underated specimen in N. longifolia...
    Perhaps a N. rafflesiana form you don't have?

    Cheers,

    Joe

    Some forms of maxima are lowlands. They usually have more spectacular peristomes than highland maximas, too!

    Get N. sumatrana, I've heard it's easy to grow, It gets huge, squat, speckled traps with candy striped peristomes. It's like a lowland version of N. burbidgea. It will eventually get huge, though like N. bicalcarata.

    N. bellii is another nice one. It resembles a miniature N. merriliana. Try to get N. bellii shipped in a pot, It gets horrible shipping shock. It has very sensitive roots. It need high humidity.

    Slurm is correct in suggesting N. sumatrana. Its beautiful and has characteristics like a rafflesiana, but nicer, grows well in shaded and humid conditions and really is a good grower.

    BTW, burbidgeae can be easily grown in lowland conditions too!
