    New neps...well new for me :P

    I am planning to buy some neps and they are highlands, so I don't know if they are easy or not. The neps are:
    Nepenthes gymnamphora
    Nepenthes muluensis x lowii
    Nepenthes spectabilis
    Nepenthes lowii - maybe

    Are these hard to grow and if not, what other neps can you recommend. I have some experience growing neps, so I wouldn't call myself a beginner...an advanced beginner?. Well anyways, thanks for the future replies

    i grow muluensis x lowii. grows pretty fast...even though it has 2 slowgrowing parents. its so far pretty tolerant of my conditions and is currently making 2 new pitchers. its a great little plant that i have gotten no trouble from so far.

    Giving people an idea of growing conditions may help answer your question a bit better.

    I grow Nepenthes gymnamphora, Nepenthes muluensis x lowii & Nepenthes lowii. They arnt the fastest plants to bulk up but keep growing at a steady pace.

    I'm growing one for someone else until they figure out what they are going to do. It's taking the summertime temps (70 night, 80 day on the dots) ok for now and is making it's first pitcher after acclimating to my humidity and light. I'm sure it'll do better when fall and winter arrives and things cool down considerably.

    I don't really have any growing conditions, I just leave my neps outside and just water them and let nature grow them for me. I don't have any terraiums or greenhouses or fancy equipment. I live in Miami, if that helps?

    By growing conditions they mean temperature ranges, humidity, light source and amount, etc. Basically the conditions it grows in, which does not mean what sort of greenhouse or terrarium.
