    Would you mind editing your post to include with the Nep names whether they are higland, lowland or intermediate?

    Thanks Jay. Gotta admit, Michelle and I sit in front of the monitor with mouths agape whenever we see photos of your Neps...

    No problem, Tre.
    Pretty much all our Neps are lowland. The few highlanders we have are those rare individuals that show great heat tolerance, perhaps they originated a little lower down the mountain than is typical. Probably better to describe our greenhouse temperatures and conditions. During winter, its closed in on all sides, with ventilation openings at the apex on the east side. The humidity rarely drops below 70 percent. On a sunny day, the peak high may get up to about 90 degrees F, but only for a short while. Most of the day is in the mid eighties. At night, the interior is consistently five to eight degrees above the ambient outdoor temp., so that puts it at a typical 56 to 62 degrees F. We use a heater (propane) only when temperatures are forecast to go below 48 F.
    Through the course of spring, I slowly remove panels of greenhouse plastic from the sides, starting on the south side, favoring the southeastern corner. By summer, only the northern wall remains in place. The top is covered in Clerk's Cool-lite, which has an IR reflective coating to help reduce temperature. The sides are covered in shadecloth.
    Our south Florida summers are lowland paradise...well almost. Still need to mist frequently to keep up the humidity levels. Michelle does this most of the time. Temps: 92-95 F during the day, 76-80 F during the night. During summer, I often mist the Nepenthes just before sundown to allow a slow evening evaporation to reduce leaf temperature. By morning, they are dry.
    Whew! Did not intend to be so long winded, but I wanted to cover a lot of bases. If there's any other questions, feel free to ask.
