    I was wandering what different species of nepenthes I could grow in ultrahighland conditions? I know a few, but I want more than a few to occupy my 75 gallon terrarium. Any help will be most useful. Thanks.

    N. rajah
    N. villosa
    N. vieillardii
    N. clipeata

    That is all I can think of... Anybody else?

    Night temps should be around 50*F, Days should be in the high seventies, low eighties... Humidity should be high, but you dont wanna get it accustomed to sumthing like 100% in case your humidifier breaks or sumthing, then it will start to wilt... Idealy 70-75% should do... Lots of light, if its sunlight, try some shade cloth to dapple it out a bit...

    Now I just need one...

    Clipeata isn't an Ultrahighland, it is a Intermediate-lowlander!

    But what are:

    N.Rajah
    N.Villosa
    N.Edwardsiana
    N.Macrophylla
    N.Lowii
    N.Trusmadiensis
    N.Kinabaluensis
    N.Ephippiata
    N.Hamata (considered a reg. highland, but can be grown great under Ultrahighlnad conditions)
    N.Tentaculata

    ******** has an interesting list :

    http://www.********.com/nuspecies.htm

    it's not "perfect", but helpful...

    not all of the spezies can be easiliy obtained, for excample, N x kinabalunensis, N x trusmadiensis, N. edwardsinana are not in vitro yet. (to my limited knowlege, of course)

    I got the two books from online nature stores based in Singapore . I just typed the names of the books on google and I got tons of hits instantly. I forget the names of the places, but they shipped the books the very next day. The price was good, although shipping to PR cost me $20 or a little less per book. I'm glad that I have the books though!
