    I have the following plants on the way: N. villosa, N. albomarginata, N. bicalcarata (which I'm currently receiving advice about in the Terrariums forum) and N. ampullaria.

    To put is simply, I need tips on growing these bad boys. The end [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Villosa- ultra highland conditions. very cool temps(~50) at night. grows very slowly

This species is very slow growing and is not a good choice for the novice, or those who are unlikely to invest the long-term effort which its successful cultivation requires. Note that when small, this species is fairly forgiving of overly warm temperatures; however, as it matures, it becomes much more demanding. Therefore, real planning and consideration is recommended prior to undertaking its cultivation. It is one of very few species which we consider truly difficult, but if appropriate conditions are provided, it can be grown quite well.
    got that from Plantswithattitude.com
    Albomarginata, bicalcarata, ampullaria- lowland conditions. bical and amp water tray method. bical high humidity and space.
    Glider gets another one [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] and you can get more info on the others at the same place. keep us up on everything

    Hey there,
    Glider answered most of your neps questions there...

    I grow albomarginata as an intermediate, actually....It seems to prefer higher light levels than I currently have it in, which I hope to recify soon....But other than that it's happy. My humidity is generally in the 60's.

    I'm wondering how I'm going to keep it cool enough for my new N. villosa. It seems that since this plant is young, it'll forgive my highter temps for the time being, but I need to get something going for the future. Anyone have any ideas on how to keep a terrarium very cool?

    Villlosa : ( I have one from 19 Septermber 2005)
    This species seems to be easy when growing as little plant but will be more demanding when becoming an adult one.
    She grows well into my terrarium and developes traps without problems.
    My terrarium temperatures are : 26 day and 18 night.
    Humidity : 60% day and 80% during night.
    120 watt of neon ( growlux + daylight )
    Distance from neon light : circa 50 cm.
    Byeeeeeee

    There use to be some good articles on the web on growing Villosa. I'll see what i can find. One used a small freezer, but I know of several using insulated boxes. If I remember my articles correctly, they aren't very forgiving of any "high" temperatures, period.
