    Hello!
    I am new to these forum.
    I understand the power of the search tool, but the information is sometimes contradictory, and their are a few things that are specific to where I live. (plus I am lazy >;-D )

    Well, anyway I live in the SC Piedmont, and it can get down to the high 20's, and reach as high as the high 90's, I was wondering if their were any nepenthes that could live outside?

    If not, my house stays at about 76 in the summer, and 68 in the winter. Is their a way I can just hang them in my hobby closet?

    If I can't , I would like to build a terrerium, what size would it need to be? Soil? light? and anything else that I need to know?

    What will my daily/weekly/monthly/seasanol schedule be?
    (as in feeding watering, and other stuff you do)

    Also, what is the "easiest" beginne nepenthes?
    How fast does this nepenthes grow?

    Thsnk you, and I will enjoy readin all ya'll's responses!

    Question nr 1
    No they wont. Usuallynever give nepenthes degrees under 40F
    With exeptions on ultra highlander which can get down to 37 F or something.

    Question nr 2
    Yes you could with raised humidity and some growlights.
    Mostly lowland nepenthes as they would probably not get a temperature drop in the night.

    Question nr 3
    With Nepenthes they are easier grown in pots.
    A terraria would be good but Nepenthes can outgrow them fast if they are not big enough.
    I have a home built terraria thats 4' long 2' tall and 3' deep.
    The more plants and space the more light you will need.
    I have 4x36 Watts flouroscent tubes over mine. Im going to put up 2 or 4 more when my plants grows a little bigger.
    Also the plants should be about 20 cm under the líghts.
    Need all the experience I can get...

    I am not sure how the humidity will be in the closet, but South Carolina, in general, is a humid state, isn't it?

    Cheers,

    Hi and welcome to the forums! Contradictory info you say? Hmmmm..... just hand around a discussuon forum long enough!

    Anyways, some of us successfully keep hanging baskets of Neps in our homes, right near a window. Very easy, and slighly messy, with the daily watering, but as long as you have something underneath it to catch the draining water, it shouldn't be too messy. Very easy and very cheap!

    The N. ventratas commonly seen at Home Depot and Lowes are easy beginner plants.
