    Question New to Neps

    Okay i have been into carnivorous plants for about 2-3 yrs but have only grown Drosera, Pings, VFT, sarracenia.

    Now i wanna try something new and want to try out Neps!

    I do have peat moss, sphagnum, and perlite but not sure what else i mite need if any. Also have a 20 gal terrarium.

    I plan on buying a fogger......good investment?

    LASTLY! What Kinda Neps should i get if I'm new to neps but not to carnivorous plants?

    I love my fogger, I feel it's a great investment. I put mine on a time though so it cycles between 30 mins on and 30 mins off. It will extend the life of the fogger, and keep the humidity reasonable.

    Sounds like you got some years of experience, so I would say your first question to answer is can you provide the highland environment, or the lowland conditions better? If you can do lowland, the owner here has some very reasonably priced neps.

    southern california is more of an intermediate climate (like me!), but some parts are highland...where abouts are you?

    basically, the higher you go, the more "highlandish" it gets, and the same is true the closer you get tot he beach...

    What are your home temperatures?

    Nepenthes Sanguinea can be grown in most conditions. I had one outside last year that took weather ranging from 95F - 48F w/ low humidity but it died in the sudden pre-winter freeze . I now grow an Orange form indoors (windowsill) with other easy and tolerant of low humidity Neps.
