    I really hope you're joking. As others have said, maybe with your current growing conditions it'll be better for you to look for other neps. Something hardier like ventricosa or its hybrids, otherwise try to improve your growing conditions

    I'm sorry, but the ice water and magnet idea are both awful and have no logic at all. Try with easier species and work your way up. Get to edwardsiana when you have much more knowledge and experience. No point in buying one and killing it instantly.

    Maybe highlanders are a bad idea. IF I turn off my AC my room stays between 75 and 80 a lot of the time. Can I do lowlanders maybe? I heard they don't like a drop

    If you dont find propper highland conditions, your hamata will suffer too(If i recall you saying you had one)

    Lowland would probably be more in your comfort zone, as I also find them slightly more forgiving.
    The one downside to lowland plants is that they get HUGE. But If I could go back and do my lowland again,
    I would be looking at rafflesianas. I think that their beatuy is very close to an edwardsiana, as they have some rather large "teeth" and some spectacular coloring. Mirabilis isnt bad either.

    My hamata shipped today it should be here by Thursday or so. The uni post office is slow though so I probably wont get it until early next week. I'm going to grow it in a bag for humidity.

    My cat will probably nibble back the lowland plants (LOL!) he eats anything that sticks out of the cage. Doesn't perveli stay small though?

    75-80F constant temps = One Dead Hamata in very short order. Did you research the climate requirements for these plants at all??

    Well I was thinking of turning AC on at night for the hamata and having it blow on the bag- that way humidity stays up, but the plant gets cool. Then maybe put some easier lowland plants next to an undertank reptile heater or something
