    i was wondering what neps i could put outside during the warm season. my usda zone is 6/7 and my ahs heat zone is 7, i live in boise idaho where temps get up to 90 deg F. i am wanting to put n. rafflesiana, n. ampullaria, n.macfarlenei, and n. sibuyansis (sp?). if i put them outside, should they be in part shade? the lowest temp around here right now is 47 deg F and the high is 82 F.
    thanks
    peace

    Hi Peanutsgang:

    I would take my chances with macfarlanei and sibuyanensis. Unless you can provide better conditions for the other two, i'd refrain from acquiring these

    good luck

    Peanuts,

    Go to my site and check out my species profiles for my Neps. I grow exclusively outdoors in temperate conditions. Some plants do better than others. While you may not be able to grow as many outdoors as I do, you might be able to enjoy some of the other more vigorous species / hybrids in those conditions.

    I had your typical garden center variety of Neps outside for the summer, having lived in the Reading, PA area (ventrata, Judith Finn) and I recommend the plants being acclimated slowly, to avoid being burned. They should be put into "bright shade" for at least a week and thereafter a morning sun exposure.
