    I've been wanting one of these Nepenthes for a long time and I can't seem to find anyone who sells it. Anyone have a suggestion?

    Also, I would like some details on how to grow them. Are they picky? Would they survive in just any old terrarium?

    They would outgrow a terrarium as they get to be quite large. They can also be picky about environmental changes and/or repotting.

    Thanks for the suggestion Wolf. It looks like they're out of them right now, which is a shame. Any other ideas?

    srduggins: How fast do they grow? I'd prefer to keep one in a terrarium since I almost exclusively use terrariums for growing.

    I'd be growing the plant in a 10 gallon tank.

    That terrarium will not be of sufficeint size. I would be surprized if it lasted three or four months (if under proper conditions). They're also very sensitive to low humidity and to drops in temperature. I had one severly die back when my heaters died and it got too cold.

    How cold was that, if I may inquire? CPers here in Taiwan tell me bicals tolerate occasional dips down to 45. I'm asking because my neps are facing their first subtropical winter in a greenhouse, and I'd like to know how high to crank the heater. We won't have frosts, but in January/February we do get lows of 38.

    Thanks

    Hans
