    Exclamation Nep xRed Dragon Care???

    So i just got a nepenthis red dragon from a local store and am sooo happy . This will be my first Nepenthis. I currently have a Leuciophyla and an Oreo., and one venus fly trap. In my terrarium thanks to one of the forum members I also have three sticky plants, and jefforever gave me some plants also.

    I just have some question about the care.
    How should I care for it. Does it need a terrarium or can i grow it in the house out of one in a room by some glass doors. Is direct sunlight needed, and what temperatures should it be in. Does it need misting, if so how many times a day.

    In advance thankyou for all of the help

    where do you live?

    red dragon is pretty tough and can be grown on a windowsill provided it gets enough light.

    It does not need a terrarium. Just give it lots of light, but not direct sunlight.

    I grow a mean thorelii x truncata (same cross, but mine is seed grown ) in my windowsill (South facing). I hope you have a huge window/sliding glass door. I've had mine a little over a year and the leaves are about 1.5 ft long each
