    How much direct sun can this sucker take? Any?
    The ones I've worked with prefer direct sun, but don't like sudden changes in lighting.

    You must have exceptional sanguineas. Tony was pretty accurate-they do not last long here in south Florida. The winter is fine, but our summer temperatures from June to October is tough on them. It seems the nice big red clones are the most heat sensitive. Again, daytime highs are not the problem, its the warm nights that puts them into a downward spiral. If we ever put a swamp cooler in the greenhouse, and run it at night, it might be a different story.

    That must be it... The nights still go into the 50s in my greenhouse [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] I've noticed that highlanders can take lowland day temps, as long as the nights are cool, and that lowlanders can take highland night temps, as long as the days are warm [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smilie4.gif[/img]

    I must be lucky...

    I have a deep red/purple sanguinea that is doing really well even though it lives in S. Florida.

    Hi all:

    N. Sanguinea is amongst the easiest neps to grow. In my experience easier than ventricosa. It pitchers readily!

    Mine I got from pft`s bare root sale 2 1\2 months ago and is growing outside is very vigorous! It has grown 5 new leafs since I got it and each one has grown a pitcher! The first pitcher was like a 1\3 of an in. tall but now it`s growing consistently 1 1\2 in. pitchers! It`s color is rather boring though,light green with a white interior speckled with red. Any body have any pics of what the pft clone looks lke when mature?[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    I have my sanguinea just 6 months, but it performs very well in the Philippine lowlands. Our nights are always warm, it goes only down to 24 deg C. Our days are also warm, between 30-34, but never really warmer. Maybe in some greenhouse temperatures rise higher, thus stressing the plant?
    Definitely a good beginners plant and looks quite nice.

    I have 2x N. sanguinea from the same source and think they are great little plants.

    For me they are about the fastest growers I have (I mean leaf and pitcher development) even outdoing my N. ventricosa's.

    One of them was purchased in poor condition with lots of leaf growth but no pitcher development (low humidity). I've now had it about a month and there are 4-5 pitchers swelling simultaneously and all at about the same size. Itís also throwing new leaves. Very vigorous plant.

    As for the conditions. At the moment we have short days (winter almost here) but they are getting about 15C nights and 25-30C days (+-2C). Humidity averages around 80% with the odd brief drop (30 minutes or so) down to say 60%.

    I canít comment on their tolerance of higher temps as itís the wrong time of year here. However these were locally grown and I am sure the growers green house must EASILY reach high 30Cís on a hot day.

    Aaron.
