    I'm wondering what neps are small easygrowing highlanders, I want them small because I would like to grow them in a 55 gallon terrarium.

    However I would like to know what kinds of neps are large showy and easy growing for outside?

    um...easy ones? you could try N. campanulata. its not very common but it should do well. ampullaria(as long as it is trimmed back) ventricosa, sanguinea..they will all do good. i have a TC mutant nep that stays REALLY small in case you wanted to trade. the plant barely gets 5 inches across!!

    N. ampullaria isn't a highlander.

    hes looking for highlanders...it doesnt mean he will be able to get low temps for them.
    Dave: highlanders are hard to up keep. true highlanders(which is what i think you are talking about) that is. JLAP has a highland take so he would be better to ask.

    N. tentucata
    N. vieillardii
    N. muluensis
    N. ventricosa

    They are all pretty easy small growers in a highland tank. (or so they have been for me)

    Nope. Only lowlanders here.

    It's easy to heat, not so to cool.

    A good portion of highlanders and all the intermediates.
