    "coldest usual temperature, mid-30s. Freezes and frosts at points throughout the winter"

    that's definately too cold. i wouldn't go lower than a typical highlander can take or warmer than a typical lowlander. it's really hardy [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Okay... so is the notion of hanging it on the screened porch during the day in winter and putting it inside at night sound like a good idea? And would summer be too hot for it?

    personally, i don't think summer sounds too hot as long as the air is humid at 100F.

    nothing withers nepenthes faster than dry heat.


    sounds like a plan to me [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Alright! So, here's the entire blueprint, just so I can feel like I know what I'm doing...

    During most of the year, hanging outside from the eaves of the back of the house, where it will get morning sun. No tray, watered from overhead. During the winter, hanging from the screened porch during the day, where it will get morning sun. Inside at night.

    Now to do some deeper research on Google..

    FTG, try looking at Neps Around the House. I think that 100's in the summer should be OK, as long as there's shade and you're good about watering. In the winter, you might want to try just leaving it in the window in a colder part of the house - perhaps the cellar? I don't think that moving it daily would make it very happy.

    PS - Neps for Everyone is another good one, and Nep University is pretty handy too. Don't forget the Nep FAQ hosted by Barry.

    I was under the impression that Neps did best when left to themselves for the most part. I've had dramatically better growth leaving my plants alone for months at a time and watering only by heavy misting. What worries me is all the warnings about sharp drops in humidity or other harsh climate changes being detrimental to many Neps. But I don't know, I've never tried it. As N. 'Miranda' is a hybrid, it's probably better prepared than most to endure mixed conditions.

    your correct, but miranda is like a fancy ventrata, basically.

    it's practically bomb-proof.
