    Nepenthes argentii

    Hello guys

    Im about to order an nep argentii, and i can read on some website that specie is picky and hard to grow.

    If i put the plant in the same tank with my nep hamata and tenuis(both plants just thrive), it will be ok ?

    Days/nights temperatures will be 24C/18C and RH% at 80%.

    Thanks!
    Maiden

    Yeah, should be fine. It's not overly particular, other than liking the media a little on the dry side. Some people say it needs a "breeze" to perform well, but I don't know about that.. some people like to make things up.

    N.argentii likes very well drained media like aristolochioides. Typical HL conditions should be fine. Also doesn't like super intense light.

    I've heard at least a dozen times that the pitchers NEED to sit in live lfs or they won't develop. This is not true, I've had pitchers develop just fine hanging over the edge of the pot. I also don't find that a breeze is needed. This is a finicky species though and doesn't like being moved around once it settles in.

    Maiden- thanks. i had a plant recently but lost it due to rot. i can echo that the media must drain easily. i would love another one.
