    (Also posted this on CPUK...)

    At last, been waiting for these for quite some time. Arrived this morning:

    N. adnata
    N. clipeata (clone 2)
    N. clipeata (clone U)
    N. pervillei

    Any suggestions about them?

    I have potted them up:

    N. adnata - mix of pumice-type and live sphagnum moss
    N. pervillei - half a pot of pumice-type topped with live sphagnum moss (I gather is grows on thin substrates over granite)
    N. clipeata - my "normal" lowland nep mix of half branded orchid compost and live sphagnum moss

    They are all in my lowland tanks (20-35C) to settle into the new compost for the moment.

    Any brilliant tips about any of these that I should be aware of?

    Thanks!

    Rob Howe.

    Hi Rob-Rah:

    It'd be interesting to see how well the pervillei grows in your lowland tank, since i consider the littles beasts strict intermediates.

    Good luck on N. pervillei. I hear it is near impossible to keep going well.

    It's a moderate lowland tank really. Not excessively hardcore "jungley".

    Once the pervillei is established it will probably find itself summering in the greenhouse with my highlanders - I believe (though correct me if wrong) that it wants lots of sun if possible, which a lowland tank generally doesn't allow.

    If it doesn't like the lowland tank then its other option is a 10-12C minimum tank over winter. We shall see......

    They all came from Andreas Wistuba, in Germany.

    I like the looks of clipeatas too. I do hope they establish painlessly. Repotting new neps is a worrying time for me...

    Rob-Rah,

    Sounds like the right requirements9temp wise) for all those. I know nothing of pervillei, but the others do not like it real hot, so i think you are on the right course.
