    i should also note, the lowlanders longifolia and merrilliana are happily growing alongside the highland flava, macro, lowii and burb in the same tank at the moment.....seems the cool end of intermediate(80 days and low 60 nights) may be a sweet spot to keep a MOST neps happy.......im sure bical and villosa may not do so well, but i seem to be able to keep most species i try happy in these temps....

    Seems like you have the more sought-for neps... and doing a hell of a job taking care of them

    i just ignore them.......believe me there is lil to no effort put forth towards their care......dont have time for it which is why you often see dead pitchers in my pics, i only clean up my plants once or twice a year....my basement temps are easily controled cause my bedroom is down there and i like to sleep cool at night, lights int he plant room warm it up during the day......watering schedule depends on how often i run the central air but during certain times i dont even have to look at them for 14 to 20 days at a time if im busy.....

    as far as the desirable species.....i just grow what i like, there are some highly desirable species i really have no interest in, much rather have villosa than eddy, will pay for a villosa, might take an eddy given to me.....actually dont spend alot on my plants, prolly buy less than $100 in cp's a year....actually get more as gifts than anything, trade for most the others.....every once in awhile i see a nep i want on a price list, cash in the change i save and buy it....

    They all look great but I'm starting to like the "Predator" alot more. It's amazing what you can do in your basement though, I'm the same way. Basement back room growin seems to work pretty well, when I start fussin' things decline. What kind of lights do you have going ?

    mainly T8's but last time i was at HD i noticed some T5 fixtures have come down in price significantly from when i last looked so i picked up a couple to replace some burned out T8 fixtures......dont use any special bulbs, always had good results with the cheapest bulk bulbs i could find.....only have had the T5's for a few weeks so i have no opinion of them compared to the T8's yet but for the size they seem to put out excellent light....

    the 'Predator' is interesting, went looking for it cause i noticed the mature pitchers were decent sized on the pics ppl put up and i liked the colors more than obsessing over the hamata parent like some did/do, im a big fan of dark peristromes, the closer to black the better.....fortunately, a friend gave me one but a lil unfortunately it was a real small basal and its been real slow on putting on size like some basals can be, especially when separated when they are a lil small.....recently its started gaining size a bit faster than in the past....
