    my favourites of the lastest list from ultra lowland to intermediate which I can afford are burbidgeae, clipeata and palawanensis. what about them? and I'll try to form a highland species list.

    I'd strike all three of those. Aristo is much more of an ultrahighlander. Att requires high humidity and high light to grow its best. Rajah is going to be very difficult to get. Wistuba is one of the few producers of that species and he does not export it outside of the EU due to the paperwork needed for CITES I species.

    Is there a home improvement or hardware store that sells plants out of a nursery section where you can go check out to see if they have any Nepenthes? Or just a nursery that sells only plants? You're pretty close to Tel Aviv so surely there must be some plant shops for city-dwellers to decorate their places with. Your best bet to get into them is get some cheap ubiquitous cross from a regular plant store, and see how it does for you in your growing conditions before you potentially kill something more expensive. Usually it's either N. Miranda or some combination of N.ventricosa and N.alata. All three of those are pretty nice plants so you can't go wrong with them, and most likely you'd get a hybrid which is more robust than just a pure species too.

    I understand it. but as you said, if I do my best to provide the conditions it might grow here. so which of the 3 will survive the easiest here?

    Of the three previous that you listed? I only have personal experience with one of the species you listed, clipeata, and it's grown fine in household conditions. I just barely got burbidgeae so I can't say about that one yet, and the last one I've never grown. YMMV but clipeata seems pretty easy as a regular houseplant.
