    Unhappy

    Okay,

    I want to move into nepenthes. I keep hearing about the higland and lowland conditions... but no where (3 weeks of searching) can I find anywhere that gives me temperature ranges for these.

    I realize that you've all probably answered this somewhere on these forums, for the life of me I can't find the posts though...

    Thanks

    Kate

    Temps for lowlanders should be as high as you can get it in the day time but try to stray away from the extreme high 90's. Night time temps for lowlanders should be 70F or higher.

    Highlanders- Day keep under 90F Night 65F or less

    Ultrahighlanders- day- under 80F ideally night- 50F to low forty's for the really high growers ie: (N.villosa, N.lamii)

    NepG, I don't know if you have the same temps as me, being near the water and all, but perhaps you do... During the summer that is... It gets into the hundreds here... easily. I shouldn't put my lowlanders outside?

    Noticed I said in my post "ideal". This mean the plants should be under those temperatures ideally. Sure lowlanders can take 100 degrees easily but again ideally the temps I mentioned are what they are most happy with and since Maehem is wanting to begin Nepenthes I think it wouldn't be advisable to put his brand new lowland nepenthes in 100F temperatures. See what I mean now? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Welcome Kate,

    I would suggest www.plantswithattitude.com as a very good site for information on Nepenthes and also excellent information on growing them indoors.

    Of course feel free to ask any questions any time.

    Nep G has it as a pretty good range although I would say for highland, to keep it 85 or under during the day..

    Of course there are also some plants like N. ventricosa, N. khasiana, N. truncata and hybrids like N. xVentrata that are very carefree and happy with just about anything you give them.
    Tony
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
