    It depends what kind of nep it is, i am asuming it is highland with it being at a nersery and all. Neps like to be flushed so a good method is watering it once a day and letting it drain, if you have a sunny windowsill that would be best unless your temps are right outdoors, for light they should have around 3-4 hours of full sun. it would be helpfull if you posted your conditions.

    I wouldn't assume it's a highland Nep. Hopefully it has a tag or the nursery can give you the name. If all else fails, maybe someone here will recognize it. I'd think an intermediate or maybe a lowland plant would be a much better fit for your climate.

    'Miranda' is an easy and showy hybrid. it was my first nep also. much showier than the 'Ventrata' most start with.
