    Question Neps in household environment.

    Hi every one,

    I found out i'm moving. My New room has a very bright and big window. I want to put a few neps on that window. I wanted to know which of these neps will do well in highland conditions, bright light, but low humidty.

    N. Lady Pauline
    N. Truncata
    N. sp. Phanga Nga Official name for N. Viking/Globosa
    N. Mixta

    I know these ones might have a better chance, but'll ask anyway

    N. Ventricosa
    N. Ventrata

    Thank you in advanced

    Lady Pauline for sure, truncata, and probably the mixta. Not so sure about the viking.

    Those will all adapt without problems.

    Once acclimated, Nepenthes are generally fine with low humidity.

    Highlanders:
    N. Lady Pauline
    N. x Mixta
    N. singalana
    N. ventricosa
    N. x ventrata
    Carn's N. trucata (Pasian Highland)

    Lowlanders:
    N. truncata
    N. sp. Phanga Nga

    If the leaf is thick, I think that you can grow it in lower humidity, but that's just my observations so far.

    N. singalana does well in my window here in Washington state. I'm near the water so the temperatures rarely reach extremes and the humidity runs about 25%-65% on average, with a reliable nighttime temperature drop. N. ventricosa, x ventrata, and truncata (highland strains) are all happy in the same environment. I haven't grown the other plants mentioned, but the two hybrids mentioned will definitely do well. Not as sure about viking. (Thought it was highland but apparently I remembered wrong.) Best luck.

    Clue Truncata can be highland or lowland, I have pasian and pasian is Highland. I knew which ones were HL or LL, just wondering which ones are hardy to the conditions I described.

    seedjar- Thanks for the singalana info.
