    How able are they to tolerate "intermediate" temperatures? Specifically warm to hot days (depending if the sun wants to shine) 70-85F and nights at 50F All the other lowlanders like merrilliana and mirabilis are doing ok.

    Hi Dustin,
    Ours are subjected to those kinds of temps in winter. You will get more of a bronzy red coloration to the leaves and the pitchers will have more of an orange base color. 'Miranda' is three fourths maxima, one fourth northiana, so I don't think it will be a problem.

    Excellent! I thought they would be pretty tolerant but wasn't too sure. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    One thing I've noticed is that some of the top burned leaves on the Miranda would grow larger to protect the underneath leaves. The burned leaves often would grow large pitchers despite the damage. It seems pretty sun tolerant even if slightly injured.

    I would not leave any nep out in the open in Florida. Afternoon protection is a must. You can FRY a sensitive nep in Florida pretty quickly from Mar -- Oct. They adjust well to more light, if it's not too much, and you don't kill them before they adjust.

    Why is that? Surely some get more intensive sunlight in their native habitat?

    My N. Coccinea are doing so well outside getting sun from noon onward that I am going to try full sun for this hardy species next spring and work my others up to at least half a day of sun.
