    I've been checking out E-Bay and there are some AWSOME Nep's for sale there. But they are all highlanders. I have an unknown Nep growing great outside now but I don't know if it's a high or lowland plant. I assumed it's a lowlander because temps around here are in the low to mid 90's in the daytime and low to mid 70's at night. Humidity is crazy low this time of year around 20-30% with wierd spikes of 70-80% at night. It took my Nep about 6 months to acclimate and it's finally makeing a pitcher. I wanna know if there are any tricks to getting a highlander to acclimate to this climate. Thanks guys.

    Some highlanders are tolerant of lowland conditions, I only know a few. N. x judith finn, ventricosa, and ventricosa x alata.

    FC, so you have highlanders outside in 90 degree weather? Do they grow well?

    I have N. ventricosa, N. ventrata, N. sanguinea, N. truncata X aristochloides, N. muluensis X lowii, and some unidentified nep hybrids growing outside year round. All are thriving. I live in San Diego, Ca. A month ago the temps were getting into the high 90's, with nighttime temps in the 60's. Now the temps are starting to get lower. It's only 75 today.
