    Low light nep?

    I'm just testing the waters at this point so please excuse my ignorance when it comes to neps...

    I'm looking at a hook in the ceiling of my bedroom and obviously I have to make use of it so I was thinking of what I could put into a hanging basket and neps came to mind. Problem is that my window faces east so really it wouldn't get much direct light. My room is usually between 70-80F during the day and cooler at night. Also it is usually above 50% humidity, which also seems to be a stretch. I was thinking a highlander but again I believe lighting would be the big problem.

    Is it just wishful thinking or is there actually a plant that would fit these conditions? Most everything I read just says the more light the better, which I don't doubt at all, but if there is a nep out there that can thrive (not just survive) in lower light I'm interested in knowing.

    Thanks!

    A N. rafflesiana might work. Mine is in identical conditions as yours. The only difference is that it's under lights. However, it's telling me by leaf burn that it could use lower light levels... I don't know if it would thrive, but I'm pretty sure it would survive.

    I really like the N x miranda but its not an easy one to find for some reason...maybe its just the season?

    How big? I don't have a whole lot of clearance and I'd like to be able to get to my closet LOL

    Yeah, I like this one too but I'd rather not get something that will only just squeak by given the conditions.

    Low light neps?......N.glabrata, N.ampullaria, N.jacquilinae, and N.jamban all do well in lower light.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Oh no...more neps to choose from. Would they all do fine with the rest of the conditions as well? I'm worried the humidity is too low.

    And this is probably pretty obvious but would hybrids of any of these crossed together work just as well?
