    is there really a truely lowland or highland veitchii? my impression was that veitchii is a intermediate and all forms will tolerate most anything. i have a supposidly highland form that is doing well as a intermediate with warm days and slightly less warm nights, i doubt it ever sees temps above 80 or below 60 degrees F.

    to bad N. x trusmadiensis isnt really availible, it looks to be one of the better hybrids.

    Don't worry Travis, to tell the truth this guy was saved, I was just teasing El -gecko earlier. Geckos are all over the place here and if they get into the nurseries, they get eaten. This one was found in time in a newly opened pitcher and I helped him out. You can see from the streaks near his right leg that he was doing the breast stroke! I like geckos really but there are a lot of them in the pitchers, usually rther decomposed.

    Sheridan, N. veitchii has a wide altitudinal distribution from near seal level right on up to several thousand feel. There is a truly lowland form (which we no longer grow) that has green pitchers and longer leaves than the highland form. It's true that you can probably grow all of them in intermediate conditions but I know that the highland form doesn't do well in the lowlands.

    I was thinking of buying a cheap gecko or something and feeding it to a Nep that hasn't eaten anthing recently. Or maybe a mouse.

    Our big N. hookeriana has caught frogs before, and khasiana will trap a lizard every now and then. Vertibrate meals are not recommended because they stink after a short while.

    NM,

    You would certainly get more out of a dollar with a dozen crickets compared to a mouse, AFA food value.
    Seeing how you are in California, you could probably save the $$ and catch some bugs.

    Cheers,

    Joe

    Geckos are cute and we can not save everyone but at least a few...unlike bugs. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]
