    anyone growing N. bellii, what conditions, photos?

    Been researching what plants might be suitable for terrarium growing. Been reading older posts about them & thought I'd ask for some currant info. From what I can gather they are lowlander that doesn't get so big?

    Thanks
    Jim

    I will post some pics later but mine is growing in a terra made out of a 20 gal high aquarium lite by two t8 bulbs. Temps/humidity run to about 80 degree/80 percent. I do find that it requires a bit of shading in my setup, so for now it is being partially shaded by my big amp. Not sure what i will do when the amp leaves the terra for good in a few weeks.
    It's a tough life being a Sarracenia farmer

    I have a bellii for over a year now. I live in the tropics. The plant stays outdoor at lowland condition, 32/26C day/night. RH 60-80% most of the time. Partial shade.
    It is a quick growing plant.

    As of photos:
    When I received it March last year, severely dehydrated 1 week after potting


    It recovered. There are 3 pitchers near the floor at lower left.

    That Bellii looks so healthy, tzestan! My Bellii is doing OK, but it could do better:



    I have 70-80 % (100% at night) humidity, temps day 28C, night minimum 24C (22C during the winter). No shade but not that strong lighting either. I'm not sure what it needs to thrive like yours
    Looking for N. Campanulata hybrids. Also would like to grow some nepenthes from seed. Growlist/pic thread: http://www.terraforums.com/forums/sh...-Pete-s-plants

    Maybe natural sunlight helps?
    Come to me flies and crawling bugs. This plant wants to give you great big hugs
    Aren't I pretty, don't I smell good? I'd come to you if I could
    But I can't so you must come to me, I'm sure we will get along splendidly

    Looks like one of these would do well in my terrarium. Even if they're a little bigger than I hoped they'd be

    Thanks all
