    Hello all!
    I am planning on obtaining a new Nepenthes sometime soon to place in my intermediate greenhouse-style terrarium. It is intermediate at 70*-77*F during the day, and 70*-74* at night. R.H. is usually between 60% and 75%. It currently houses two happy neps: A N. rafflesiana and a N. ventricosa, as well as a P. moranensis 'G'. I'm leaning towards Nepenthes ampularia 'Spotted'. This is a stunning plant, but if anyone thinks something may fit better, please don't hesitate to tell me! Thanks so much!!!

    I wouldn't recomend N. Ampullaria for an Intermediate setup, because of the fact that it is a lowland. But I haven't heard of anyone trying to grow an Amp. in an Intermediate setup so it may work. I agree though, N. Ampullaria 'spotted' is cool.

    EDIT: I'd recomend N. Maxima.

    Thanks, I really do love that plant, but it's a little expensive...

    N. maxima isn't expensive unless it is a large rooted cutting. Most large cuttings I get of Nepenthes are very healthy and in great condition hence the price on them. I would also recommend N. burkei. It does good with warm nights. It is similar to N. ventricosa but IMHO it is more reddish and more of graceful pitchers. Might want to try N. gracilis also it seems to do fine in intermediate conditions. N. khasiana, N. ventrata and N. alata are also great candidates.

    Do you mean Maxima or Ampullaria 'spotted'? Neither of them are exepensive.

    Thank you so much!!! I most likely will look into either N. khasiana, N. burkei, or N. gracilis [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Im thinking N. Khasaina, or N. Fusca, they can grow in easy intermediate conditions. (if im thinking of the wrong plant...please tell me! Thanks) Personally, i would go with N. Fusca [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] ,

    N. fusca would be very suitable provided temperatures at night hit 60F or lower preferably.
