    Awesome!

    I have the exact same conditions (goes off and orders neps)

    Here are some hybrids you should try,
    Exoticplantsplus has them in stock now

    N. truncata x talangensis
    N. truncata x sibuyanensis

    How much humidity are you growing your plants in?
    Both seem like good, hardy candidates for a windowsill

    I use a humidifier hooked up to a humidistat to control humidity. When I first started growing Neps, I had the humidity set at 80%. Now I have slowly reduced the humidity down to 70%. The plants grow great. I'm going to try to lower it a bit more (60-65%).

    They might be good candidates for some windowsills, but not mine! Average humidity around here is 10%!

    I would try and get lowii x truncata while the gettin's good [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Man! That lowii x truncata is awesome!

    You may want to check out truncata x ventricosa - also a very cool truncata hybrid.

    All the truncata hybrids are great. I just don't have room for them!

    My wish list:
    N x Predator
    N truncata x stenophylla
    N truncata x aristo
    N. truncata x veitchii
    N. truncata x maxima
    N. truncata x this
    N. truncata x that
