    Wanted: N. vietchii highland

    Like the title says, I'm looking for a highland form of N. vietchii - trying to add more low-humidity-tolerant species to my collection. I rarely see these offered, but if you've got a spare or can root a cutting for me, check my growlist and hopefully we can work something out. http://terraforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=98220
    Right now I've got Pings and temperate Drosera, and am getting ready to divide most of my Sarracenia. Also have some oddballs like G. hispidula - PM me with your thoughts.
    Thanks,
    ~Joe

    Well, humidity isn't particularly low at my house - it's usually 65-75% and consistent enough. Between that and the cool temperatures in the area I can grow sensitive species like rajah and lowii in the open without much fuss. N. vietchii is supposed to a fairly easy species from what I've read, so I can't imagine it failing where a stickler like rajah succeeds. And all of my vietchii hybrids seem to love these conditions. I just like tougher plants because I can spend less time doting on them and more time enjoying them.

    Hehe, thanks. I used to be super paranoid about my Neps but it seems I've got fairly ideal conditions. Now they and I have come to an understanding; they grow when they want to and I leave them alone as much as possible.
