    N. mirabilis low or high? -both?

    I have a ton of N. mirabilis 'red lip' seeds. I heard they are lowland, so they are in a heated tank right now, but i reallly want to grow them on my shelf (highland conditions)
    i've also heard that the high/low depends on the clone/plant.
    will raising them from seed in highland conditions make them more accepting of them?
    should i just stick with the lowland tank?
    Thanks

    btw, if anyone wants to trade for seeds or seedlings...

    Hi Alec,

    N. mirabilis is a lowlander. I have not heard of it being successfully grown in anything other than lowland conditions, nor do I believe it would tolerate anything besides LL conditions. Plus, even highlander species seeds germinate well under warmer conditions, growing less tolerant of excessive warmth as they get larger.

    Really? For how long? That's pretty interesting; you are the only grower I know of who had N. mirabilis in HL conditions.

    Alec, I guess you could sow some seeds in HL conditions as well, just to see how they do.

    Hmm. Please let us know how that works out long-term, Adam. I'm curious to see how it does!
