    Picking a new Nep, Looking for Inputs

    Hi,

    I'm currently growing 3 variations of nepenthes ampullaria, they are all growing well (producing new leaves and pitchers) and one is just starting to produce its first ground pitcher.

    Some general info on my growing conditions, 2 T5HO lights, Temps 60-80, humidity 60-99%.

    Now what I'm really looking for is a small pitchers vining type that would do well in a vivarium with the ampullarias, I want to stick with species as I'm not ready to get into the whole hybrid mess yet. I'm wanting one that is alot more vining than the ampullarias are to add some contrast.

    Any suggestions?

    Your open to a wide range of Nepenthes with those conditions. Lowland, intermediate, and a lot of highlanders.
    It's really a matter of what you like. Just about anything will add contrast to amps, they're very unique as pitchers go.

    Is there anything that has recently caught your eye?

    Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?

    actually with the good light if you want something on the small side id venture a guess and say glabrata
    it vines at a small size and has beautiful dainty pitchers.

    Would glabrata do well with night time temps in the low 60s? In the summer they would be around 65 as a low, I always figured that was too high for highlands.

    With 80*F day temps? Yes, from what I've heard and seen. Others may think differently, though.
