    I am starting with my chamber and I need a Nep that is true lowland (tank is 75-80deg F.and 85%+humidity at all times with frequent short bursts of rain) I really would like it to be Epi but not a must. Also I don't want bical, something else it must be. It also can't have monster pitchers space will not permit 12" pitchers anywhere in its future. Also its medium light levels.

    Tell me, Who should I put in the tank?

    Why would you need a hot, humid lover in trees? Must be the moth thing. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    really, you could in theory grow any nepenthes as an epiphyte (sp?). if you keep the substrate moist enough and use the right kind, and plant them the right way. with a little planing it could be done.you could even make holes in wood and disguise it as an eppiphytic planting.

    Yeah, I kinda didn't realize what I typed until afterwards. You know what I meant but it didn't print well.

    I'm looking for something small like N. belleii, or ampullaria.

    Can't resist a good tease or a bad pun! No doubt y'all have fun with mine. Capensis has an 's' in it.

    Try gracilis. Easy to get and grow. And although the pitchers might not be spectacular, the whole plant can be very eye catching, once it has numerous growth points and pitchers. Fun also, if you like pruning [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    i would try an amp. thats just because its my favorite lowlander and it seems to fit your bill. im not sure if the lowland veitchii grows in a simmilar fasion to the highland but if it does it wouldnt be too bad. it gets good sized pitchers but not huge ones, the mature pitchers i saw on a rather large 20 year old highland specimen were around 10 inches tall IIRC, far smaller than the huge truncata that was near by. the leaves are short and squat(in the highland version i grow atleast)
