    Question Nice hybrids which aren't picky about temp differential

    I was wondering if anyone had recommendations for for some handsome nep hybrids (not ventrata) which will grow well in an office environment where the day/night temp differential is minimal. I've got a x Wrigleyana and a x Lorraine under a T5 fixture at my office desk. Assuming they do alright, I'll probably want a few more neps.

    Cheers

    Jason

    N. x 'Miranda' comes to mind, though it may get too big for an office environment. N. x 'Gentle' is a relatively small maxima hybrid that does well on windows and the like...

    N. maxima x aristolochioides is also a great plant. Almost anything with maxima in it should do well.

    Awesome suggestion; I've been looking to get my hands on an aristo hybrid!

    I would think an aristo hybrid would be difficult. I have heard that spatulata hybrids also do well in this environment.

    The "easy genes" of maxima tend to nullify any difficulty or pickyness another species may have when bred to it.

    +1. This is one tough plant, thanks to the maxima, and it makes very colorful pitchers.

    Good to hear! I already put in an order for one.

    I'm still willing to hear any other suggestions from people!
