    It is easy to cool a terreium if you have the money to get one setup. I have a pictures of a tank designed by someone else. It would just cost a pretty penny to set it up.

    Well I'll see if can pull this back on topic.

    Real quick. N. campanulata is a lowlander and N. truncata gets huge so I'd scrap them for your highland tank purposes. Though truncata would probably be okay outdoors there in FL, at least during the summer.

    Good, easy, small(er) highlanders would be:

    N. vieillardii
    N. ventricosa
    N. inermis
    N. gymnamphoria

    If you want something a little more difficult and that can reach bigger sizes then you can consider:

    N. hamata
    N. aristolochioides
    N. glabrata
    N. diata


    and basically any of the others as younger plants or if you are willing to cut off the vines and just grow the basal rosettes.

    Should be fairly easy if you check with the major Nep dealers. And sometime people have vines available

    it was said somewhere that it grows better as an intermediate than as a lowlander.

    How do you grow intermediates?

    What kinds of intermediates are there?

    Does Nepenthes lowii get big? Is it easy to grow?

    #1: if your a lil to warm for highlanders(nights in the high 60's or 70's) and a lil cool for lowlanders(days in the 70's-80's) your about perfect for intermediates

    #2 all kinds. N. bongso is a perfect example. alot of hybrids are intermediates

    #3 not sure on how big but it grows slooooooooooowly.

    #4 good question, i havent had any luck with it but i am growing ephippiata without to many problems. ive heard other ppl say lowii is much easier than ephippiata. depends on the grower i guess.
