    At these temperatures, you will have to skip all of the highland type Nepenthes, as these all need a wide day-to-night temperature swing in the range of 55F at night, up to 80F max during the day. Highland Nepenthes won't last long in a grow chamber where temps remain at 75-80F. You do realize this, yes? I shouldn't assume that you aren't already aware of this

    Yes, I do realize this and I can accommodate these temperature swings. Currently, this winter I am struggling to keep my drosera chamber temperature from dropping too low. But yeah I can accommodate highland types, I have another growing chamber that isn't as temperature controlled and is allowed to swing.

    This is why you need to provide lots of specific data about your conditions when you announce a search for new plants. It saves the rest of us a lot of time and trouble asking a load of questions :-)

    Central Illinois. I do all my growing indoors and under lights, occasionally bring them outside during the summer.

    hmm.......i have a sm division of S. “Wilkerson’s Red” x Alata Red Black you can have but generally most sarracenia prefer to be grown outside....they need really bright light and a winter dormancy.....keep it cold until late march. If you want to try one it is yours for $6 which is just to cover shipping. pm me your address if you are interested.

    I have a D. capillaris that has put up some scapes and is starting to bloom. The seeds should be harvestable in a couple weeks if you're willing to wait a bit. I'd love some D. madagascarensis seed.
