    My new potluck neps

    So I took advantage of a recent highland nepenthes clearance where I got 5 random plants out of a list of 10 species. I think I got a pretty good drawing.

    N. mikei


    N. talangensis


    N. fusca


    N. spectabillis


    N. mira


    And not one of the random plants but a recent purchase

    N. reinwardtiana


    So, anyone know if any of these plants are particularly difficult?

    Talangensis is a difficult plant if you can't give it cool nights and intense sunlight. Spectabillis is a frustrating plant to pitcher.

    I don't know why everyone keeps saying spectabillis is a difficult plant to pitcher. I have it growing in literal lowland conditions, no drop at all at night and it's currently opening two pitchers at once. I figured the mite treatment with neem oil would set it back, it didn't. Is there more than one clone floating around? Mine is labeled as North Sumatra Clone 1.

    As far as the other plants, I don't have any experience with them. Remember that the reinwardtiana is a lowlander and will not do well with cool nights.

    According to the place I got my reinwardtiana from, it's an intermediate and can be grow as a highlander or lowlander.
