Instead, adult plants usually tolerate lower humidity levels or wrong temperatures for longer periods, giving a starter like me the time to think what is going wrong. This is my personal oppinion, if someone has a different one I would really appreciate his/her help. Thank you !!
In this case, you probably want to start with easy highland species like N. sanguinea, N. ventricosa, N. maxima, or hybrids such as N. x miranda or N. x ventrata. N. rafflesiana needs high humidity, ideally 70-80 percent, as well as temps in the 80's during the day and around 70 at night. N. ampullaria is also a lowlander, and although I have heard of it doing OK on a windowsill, it should be kept in similar conditions to rafflesiana.
