    I'll likely have these arriving tomorrow. What's the collective wisdom about growing them?

    Keep them cool and they'll do well. Pure sphagnum has worked well for me as a medium.

    I only grow N. vogelii from that list, and it seems happy in typical highland conditions. I use my standard mix of half lfs, then equal parts orchid bark, pumice, and charcoal.

    I have argentii, and it's actually pretty easy. There's some mis-information on the net about it - that it has to bury it's tendril for them to form pitchers. In my experience, this isn't true.

    I grow mine in LFS with orchid mix for a little "chunk" with pretty good results. Though I think Rob from Borneo Exotics had some really good results with a different mix. Can't remember what it was off the top of my head....You might want to check out his sight for some media tips.

    I've been growing N. talangensis as a highlander for several years, and its doing fine. Temps generally run from low of 50 to 80F high. I've seen it described as an "ultra-highlander". Maybe it will grow better under very cool conditions, but they don't seem mandatory.

    Good luck,
