    D.regia is just a ticking time bomb for the first 2 years. It's just waiting for you to fall behind before it explodes, so i'll pass.

    I beg you to reconsider, but how about a south african dew? a nice red capensis could also be eye-catching

    A cold front killed my South African ones :#

    Capensis apparently died from sand.

    Isn't your teacher buying these for you? I'm sure a capensis under lights in a greenhouse would do fine. But if you don't like that idea, I think you could return to the N. miranda. Maybe a raff or bical? I'm growing an ampullaria in a terrarium with only a window to heat and light it, and it's doing fine. A large Lowland nep would be sure to please. Or maybe U. gibba? It's incredibly easy to care for and displays it's traps well.

    Yes she is, but I agreed with that I wouldn't grow anything that I already have great experience in.

    I'd go with capensis. All it needs is a peat soil and it'll do fine. Mine has survived two winters by putting out off shoots from the dead-looking stem. Tough lil' buggers. If there's spider mites in the GH then I would certainly avoid choosing Nepenthes.


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    No Capensis.

    But does anyone think I can grow a Heliamphora in a greenhouse. I can get a take and I already own a humidifier...

    If not, then ill just go with a ultric i guess.
