    The boa is a beauty. He's moved up to hoppers finally but he's still got some growing to do. They're very aggressive but I can take him out to handle at night (lights out in a few hours)

    The first plant you had wasn't "a baby"??
    And 68F nights are far too warm, as Hawken suggested.

    I believe in miracles. If God can help Moses part the Red sea he can help me grow an Eddy too warm

    They're very easy to handle if you're paying attention and have reasonably good reflexes. Their strike is very slow by snake standards, and easily avoidable if you're paying attention. By distracting them with one hand your other hand can become the branch supporting the snake. Once you have them in hand they're no problem except to anything that moves around you.
    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.

    68F nights are not too warm, especially for an adaptable species like edwardsiana. My plants receive those temps half a year and don't slow.

    I actually think the temps may be ok (for now), as long as the plant doesn't dry out during the hottests parts of the day. Nepenthes fresh from TC are much more sensitive than ones that have been harded off (do you mean that the plant from NE is straight out of TC, or that it is a TC clone?).

    It was hardened off for me. It's been out for a few months I guess.

    I stopped believing when I realized no pictures are going to be posted.
