thez_yo - Glad I helped give you confidence with you experimenting growing neps / CPs on windowsills. Neps around the house helped push me to try it.
When I started growing CP's many years ago, everything you read was CPs need high humidity, some plants temp drops, etc, etc.
I wondered how I'd ever be able to grow any of these cool plants without some kind of elaborate set up.
So I experimented, and in doing so found many plants able to adapt. All neps that I grew as houseplants usually sulked for 3 to 4 months before adapting and started to produce pitchers again. I started out with common plants. After growing common plants as houseplants successfully I then started plants that were reported more finicky. Again after 3 or 4 months they adapted. That's when I made the jump, N. hamata. The plant I dreamed of owning in my collection for several years. Temp, humidity all running through my head. It's the only way that you can grow N. hamata...
In some old threads here, I believe I have it written, this experiment with the N. hamata will be "adapt or die". Of course I want no plant or animal to suffer, but sometimes it takes pushing the boundaries of "acceptable" conditions to see what can actually be tolerated.
I grow Helis, Cephs, Pings, Neps, Dews, Utrics, and Brocchinia as houseplants.

I then place a layer of LFS about 1" high on the bottom and up the sides. (Hope this makes sense) The sides are done after starting to fill the bottom with my soil mix, otherwise the LFS just falls to the bottom.
My soil mix is equal parts Perlite, Peat Moss, and LFS.
I then top dress it with LFS. I may have tried live LFS long ago, but the pot is not kept damp enough to keep it alive long term.
Those are some very pretty N. Glabrata uppers!
