    So, between Judith Finn, rafflesiana, sanguinea, truncata and ventricosa. I guess you guys suggest the ventricosa?

    Isn't it considered a highland type though?

    Do they have Lowes Department store in Quebec? If so, they often bring in N. ventricosa. That was where I bought my first Nep. Still alive after 9 months.

    well, plants don't read books so they don't know if they are highlands or lowlands. ventricosa is very adaptable.

    tell a Villosa that i said that it doesn't know if it's a highland or a lowland and it might want to argue...

    Although Ventricosa is a highlander, it grows great here in the lowlands. In my opinion it grows even better than x ventrata and it is prettier too. But, maybe I am just ventrata-over saturated [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
    Truncatas are not really slow, if you keep them warm and sunny, visit my Time Lapse Page, it's a great beginners plant IMHO.

    I think there's no "Lowes" outside the US.
    Hum hum, need more luck.

    Ok, so one Ventricosa to my list =)

    Now since I'm making an order, I might as well make it worthy, would a Rafflesiana have what it takes to survive me? And would it be ok in the same terrarium as the Ventricosa? Or am I better to go with the Sanguinea?

    Decisions decisions!

    (Another thing please, Nep take less light than most CPs right? So since I'm building right now a terrarium to put everything in, should I stick with the "2 tubes per 6 inches" rule or have one tube per 6 inches?)

    Thanks!

    I would look to the sanguinea, as it has the same temp requirements as the ventricosa, and is also much more humidity-tollerant than the raf.
