    Highland and Lowland neps in same tank?

    I have a 55 gallon tank and want to add a few more neps to my collection

    The temps in the terrarium range from the mid-to-high 60's inthe evening to the low-to-mid 80's during the day.

    I have a ventricosa in there that is doing great.

    It seems like this temp range is kind of right in the middle of both high and low neps...

    Do you think both types will do ok in this environ?

    Specifically, I am ordering the following plants:

    Nepenthes ampullaria - Spotted
    Nepenthes gymnamphora
    Nepenthes lowii
    Nepenthes rafflesiana
    Nepenthes sibuyanensis

    Ventricosa & Rafflesiana at around 75 should be a fine compromise. But I don't think the true High Landers are gonna like yer terrarium in the summertime... might want to make it into a dedicated LL tank with the temps you have.

    Ugh... all of the best Nepenthes are highlanders. Mother nature throws us hotties a bone once and a while with a plant like N. bicalcarata but she clearly likes the mountains more than the lowlands.

    So lemme get this straight...

    temps around 65 at night and 85 during the day are going to be better for lowlanders?

    I'll need a cooler evening temp for the highlanders but 85 during the day is ok?

    I guess what I'm looking for is a detailed description of the terrariums in which you guys keep your highlands and lowlands... details, details, details...

    I'm starting to think that my current conditions really aren't optimal for either but instead kind of in the middle of both...

    No no no. I was ranting and complaining because I'm just SOOOO good at it.

    I can't comment on highlanders since I don't have the right conditions to grow most of them. I can only comment on lowlanders.
