    Does such a Nepenthes exist that would grow in a bathroom with a considerable amount of very bright indirect light and decent levels of humidity? Air temps of 72-75 during the day and around 68 at night?

    Definitely. Take a look at the list of plants in the "Feb. 28 2005,12:36" post here: http://www.**********.com/cgi-bin....8;st=10

    I can also vouch for Ventrata and Miranda.

    I can vouch for what I thought was a ventricosa but others say is a sanguinea.

    N. x Ventrata would be my best guess.

    Looks as if N. ventrata has every one's confidence.

    Oh nice thread you sent us to endparenthesis! Thanks for pointing out that was there.

    So far I'm thinking N. rafflesiana, N. macfarlanei, N. sanguinea, N. maxima, N. truncata, and the most bombproof of them all... N. ventrata. Need to do a little bit more research now. Looks as if this it totally doable in an all white bathroom with high ceilings, high humidity, and lots of mirrors. If orchids will make it in there, these should too. Tee he, big huge jacuzzi tub for 4 in that room that we can fill up with water and let sit. Geesh, we rarely use it anyway so might as well get some use out of it. That ought to raise the relative humidity in there!

    NO khasiana! They can withstand frosts! They can grow as lowland or highland, they can withstand incredibly low humidity, and too low watering levels. They are indestructible.
    Update: Parents convinced to allow me to keep greenhouse heated over winter. Most species will not be lost. Too lazy to update growlist.

    I would be a bit sanguine about the comment that khasiana can withstand frosts. I think that view mostly comes from Michael Catalani's site, which says it is 'reputed' to survive them. The only khasiana I am aware of that experienced a frost died. Has anybody experimented on this one?
