    What I was talking about if anyone is interested in it...




    I could definitely try one in my LL terrarium once it gets set up I think, and then I could move it into the greenhouse in summer.

    Generally speaking many lowland plants can tolerate colder than prefered night temperatures IF the day temperatures are nice and warm.. 85 is good. But it needs to be consistantly that temperature. Some plants in my experience will dislike the cold nights regardless of the day temperature. N. bicalcarata is one of them. Too cold at night and it will turn black and it doesn't matter how warm it was that day. 55 is way too cold for this one imo.
    Some you could try.
    N. ampullaria (red forms seem to deal better with the cold)
    N. viking or globosa or mirabilis globosa.. or whatever you want to call it
    N. albomarginata
    N. campanulata
    N. rafflesiana - probably be ok but may not thrive like it should
    N. truncata
    probably some others that I can't think of off the top of my head..
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Thats strange... I find that my Bical really doesn't matter what the night temps are as long as the days are >85


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    Thank you! I'll write those down on a piece of paper and take it with me next time I go nep shopping.
