I would reccomend a plant such as N. glabrata, N. lowii, N. ephippiata (although mine is putting some size on now quite rapidly), N. densiliflora, N. diatas (may be a bit viney), N. macrophylla, and N. rajah (gets big after 2 year or so)
    where can I get macrophylla? tony doesnt have it...

    Tony has two sizes, both for a low, low price that will spin your head (What do you expect for such a cool plant)...

    ...and one's got my name on it.

    N. diatas is, in my experience to date, NOT a small plant. It's easily the biggest plant in my highland terrarium, and the leaves have doubled in length over the last three months or so. Incidentally, that one came from Tony, too.

    Adnata is nice and small, but probably doesn't like that much cold. My singalana has been very small for quite a while, so it might be a good option for a year or two. Of course, lowii grows slowly, so that's good for a few years. Same for villosa (Schloaty, how can you EVER forget villosa).

    Good heavens, no! It's in an open-top 10 gallon somewhat near the window. It gets a few hours of very diffused sunlight in the evening, and a weak fluoro during the day. I think the amount of light in my highland tank would fry it, if the temperature didn't.

    N. rajah stays pretty small for a while...

    D,

    I guess I got confused about all the only highland talk and saw you throw that name in. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] I forgot he mentioned size, too.
    How is this grow area getting cooled so low, BTW? I don't know how some of these highlanders work in cooler temps than the normal 50F, but a nice small one that has not been mentioned(I think) is N. muluiensis.

    Regards,

    Joe
