    seedjar, there is no cellar, but the whole house is the colder part of the house. We don't heat. But there's no window I can put it in. No room in my room, and in all the other rooms of the house, there's no way I could get it into a window that both has any room at all around it and does not have a curtain or shade on it. This whole house is very inconvenient in the case of most everything.

    Thanks for the links, I'll look them over later.

    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..
    I have a water tray on the N. miranda.

    I have found that it is VERY intolerant of letting the soil dry.

    If i water it, and let a couple of inches collect in the tray, it does just fine.

    I've been growing it that way for a year, with no hint of disease.

    *rummages through brain for a way to put a tray on a hanging pot*

    Anyhoo, I got the plant yesterday. It's actually two plants in one big hanging pot. Right now I have it hanging on the back porch where it gets no sun, acclimating for a few days. Then I'm actually gonna move it just farther towards the end of the porch where it'll get morning sun through the screen. I'm also gonna find some way to change the hanger on it.. take the plastic short one off and rig up a longer chain one so it's at my eye level so I can tend it easier.

    As for taking the hanger off, leave it on and just hang a chain off the point you're hanging your pot, then hang the pot off the chain.

    If the conditions are too much differerent some species and hybrids will drop there pitchers (so I have found). I think miranda should be okay though

    Scott, the day my grandparents let me order off the Internet is the day the term "Freedom Fries" becomes widely accepted.

    You know that fries will never have freedom. when given the coice of liberty or death they always chose death (by being eaten of course).
