    A 55 gal terrarium with a glass cover for optimal humidity. The cover is not sealed so as to allow circulation and prevent mold. The terrarium is 18" tall. The temperature ranges from 64 degrees to 81 degrees F. I use RO water.

    A 575 watts of metal halide lighting (10,000K bulbs) and 280 watts of compact flourescent lights (dual 6,500/10,000K bulbs). The plants are on a 12 hour photoperiod.

    Who deserves a free Nepenthes giveaway? But I give of my experience where I can. I actively participate in the forums. And, I can provide a environment where the plant can flourish. I already care for two other nepenthes.

    None. I entered one previously but did not win.

    Thanks...

    Peace,

    A bit tight on space right now so I have to be a bit more selective. Give and Take; it's also been a while since I've done a giveaway.

    What conditions will you grow this in?
    I will grow it in household windowsill conditions. The temperatures will stay between 60 and 85. The humidity is average in the winter, but in the spring and summer it will be high. I will water it with distilled water as often as necessary (two to three times a week on average.)

    What lighting will you give this Nepenthes?
    At present I have 4 hours of direct sunlight in an east facing window, but more or less can be provided.

    What medium will you repot this Nepenthes in?
    I will repot it in long fiber sphagnum moss with a generous portion of orchid bark.

    Why do you feel you deserve this Nepenthes?
    I love Nepenthes. If I recieve this plant, I will endow it with copious amounts of love and nurturing. I will even be sure to talk to it on a daily basis.
    I am also not afraid to ask questions and do research. If I should find that this plant requires more specific conditions, I will go out of my way to provide them. That said, I am currently cultivating nine other Nepenthes with great success.

    What giveaways have you done in the past?
    I have never done a giveaway before. This is my first time. In fact, I just joined this forum, but I love Neps, so I thought I'd give it a try.

    Mirabilis x Tiger, eh? Sounds like a NeoFarm cross if I'm not mistaken. It sounds very promising.

    What conditions will you grow this in?
    I will grow it on my window. Because this has mirabilis and Tiger genes, I think that a lengthy acclimation process will be in order.

    What lighting will you give this Nepenthes?
    Natural sun from a southeastern and maybe a t5 supplementary light once/if I decide to get it installed.

    What media will you repot this Nepenthes in?
    My standard fast draining media of cedar mulch, pine bark, perlite, and broken sphagnum to retain some water.

    Why do you feel you deserve this Nepenthes?
    I don't think I quite deserve it, considering how many Nepenthes I already own, but it's always a treat to get new plants. And if it despises me, I will probably pass it along to another grower in this thread.

    What giveaways have you done in the past?
    I have done two SASE seed giveaways and have given away Genlisea, Cephalotus, and Darlingtonia cuttings at a few BACPS meetings.

    Good luck to you guys and girls!

    (BTW Yann, there are a couple of "Tigers" roaming around... I think most of them are different species from Thailand and Indochina.)
