    Intermediate Neps

    Hi,

    I'm just looking for opinions on Nepenthes that are the most rewarding yet easy intermediates to grow in terrariums. What are they? I'm looking to add something to my small nep collection. I'm already growing N. sanguinea and N. ventricosa. What do yall think?

    Ramispina would be a good one.

    And I cannot recommend "Lady Pauline" enough. This thing grows like a weed on steroids! It would do great in an intermediate set-up. Plus, my opinion of course, it has gorgeous pitchers.

    N.fusca which is a really beautiful nep. I would suggest the sarawak form which I got myself. You could try ampullaria, gymnaphora as well.

    I was going to suggest "Lady Pauline" as well, but somebody else already has. It is a great intermediate to have. I might try a intermediate Truncata too. I have a highland and it is doing well along with my Lady P. So I would imagine an intermediate Trunc would to well also.

    I have the following growing in what might be considered intermediate/lowland conditions (80-84 day, 78-80 night, 50% humidity day, night unknown):
    N. spectabilis
    N. truncata Pasian highland
    N. x 'Marbled Dragon'
    N. ampullaria speckled
    N. ampullaria 'green'

    The amps I haven't had long and have not yet started pitchering, but everything else is.

    Any particular reason you want to grow intermediates in a terrarium? By definition, don't they not need a terrarium because they are in between highland and lowland conditions? Unless your temps are totally whacked, I suppose.
