    N. argentii cultivation

    I was just wondering if anyone here grows this species and if so, what kind of temps, light exposure, and soil mix does this plant prefer? I'm having a hard time finding info on this species because it seems that very few people actually grow it.

    Thanks for any insight you can provide.

    Edit: Nevermind..

    Mod edit: This really wasn't necessary. If you haven't got anything nice to say, then stay out of the conversation. No, we don't need a passive-aggressive post either.

    I want to grow one because I hear they are the smallest Nepenthes known. I'm interested in their growing instructions too.

    i do grow this plant, it is rather small though and has 3 growth points, and i mean small in every extent of the meaning...it was a good size from what i could tell when the previous owner gave it to me with some other plants, but the main point was pretty much toast...its since come back with 3 basals...
    a very good friend of mine grows them in his greenhouse with great success, as highlanders the way they should be....soil mix he uses is peat/perlite/lfs/sand/orchid bark/osmunda fiber and the light i believe is full sun but through a white tinted covering on his greenhouse....difficult to explain. temps 80-90 days and 50s at night

    Back in the day when mine grew and pitchered very well, I found that it loved day temps in 80s during day and night temps in 50s. Also, it enjoys the highest amount of light you can give it....and I really mean a much as you can. Unfortunately my argentii died when it dried out during my cuba vacation and the growth point went black to never come back.
