    What could I grow?

    Im looking for some ideas on what nepenthes to get next? The growing spot I have planned for this unknown nepenthes is in my reptile room. Its heated to 80-83 year round and has pretty good light but I plan on putting in a 4 foot fluorescent light for this plant. I would like to grow a bical or a rafflesiana. Would either of those be suitable for the growing conditions I have? Are there any other nepenthes you all would recommend?

    Lowlanders would do great with those temps.
    A bical or raff should be very happy.

    I have a bical and raff I grow on a windowsill. Both are not very happy in winter cause I keep the house on the cool side 64 degrees. Out of the 2 the raff does better with the cooler temps.

    What are some other lowlanders that would do good with those conditions? Do you happen to know of anyone that is selling or trading a bical or rafflesiana?

    I'd go with a bical or ampullaria. They both do well in lower light and would like those temps. They're also two of the coolest lowlanders in my opinion. The only lowlander I like better is northiana but it's very tempremental and best suited for experienced growers.

    yep 80-83 all day everyday. Humidity is usually around 40-50%.

    Seems like pretty good conditions for most lowlanders. Ideally the humidity would be a little higher but the plants should acclimate and be fine.

    How quickly do albomarginata, ampullaria, and truncata grow? I know they say bical and raff grow extremely quick but how about the others? Also what about madagascariensis, would it grow well in my growing condition?
