    Anyone know of any smallish growing neps (or any for that matter) that like seventies to mid seventies during the day and forty or a little below at night?

    That cold is ultra highland, isn't it? N. villosa might work.
    N. khasiana is supposed to take cold temps well...

    Regards,

    N. pilosa is also highland. As for those temps highlanders to ultrahighlanders would suit that temperature range.

    That's a joke, right? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]





    Hmmmm, now I need one ultra-highland, small as possible of course.

    I want to give one of these so called "bad boys" a try. Villosa is a nice one too.

    N. villosa is very picky about temperatures. Particularly nocturnal temperatures. Try to hit at least 50- 48 or so is very good. 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)
