    thats fine for anything not an ultra highlander.......just having a nighttime dip is the important thing for the less fussy species.....

    Maybe N. bellii, a dainty lowlander from the Philippines?

    Here are the three that I think would work best so far, I'm leaning toward bellii right now. Still have alot of research and more Neps to look into thou.

    N. gracilis
    N. glabrata
    N. bellii

    Are you limiting it to only species?
    if not, a great hybrid would be N. spectabilis x aristolochioides....the BE version is what i have, and is very vigorous, and very beautiful
    another good one would be jamban or jacquelineae
    both are vigorous and do well in highland/intermediate conditions

    I'd go for glabrata due to it's smaller size, it would do fine with your conditions, it seems though that the lowland ampullaria might be the fussier one of the two your conditions sound pretty highlandish.

    My conditions are ultra highland.

    N. bellii is nice, especially if you have limited space. But it sounds like you could probably do well with some intermediates or even the more tolerant highlanders - I second Kris' suggestion to think about hybrids. N. chaniana x vietchii is one of my favorites among plants that like warm days.

    I'd say you'd do well with the ones you're thinking about now. Bellii should be tolerant of warm days, seeing as it's a lowlander. Gracilis as well. Glabrata, from what I've heard is mainly sensitive to low humidity (the leaves are really thin). If the humidity's decent you could grow it easily though.
