    Question

    I was readin through the posts and I just realized that I should get a highland nep for in my room. My room is ALWAYS cold. from 50-75 at all times. I have my window open in the winter sometimes, like right now. AND, if it's really windy then it can get to like...50 degrees in my room. Bad for me but possibly good for them. I've been wanting to get a nep for some time now. I'm gonna go search around Cook's for a good highland. And to think I was afraid to grow lowlands when it's probably the best thing I could grow right now.

    I live in Ohio in US, and it gets really cold. I have a nep and I don't know what species it is. It is growing really tall, and I mean taller than I thought it ever would, but it doesn't develop pitchers. Must I have the plant in a terrarium? Or could I just mist the plant and give the impression of humidity?

    Humidity is your issue otisthorpe. Try misting it or place a humidifer near it. Or do what I did when I didn't have the greenhouse, grow stuff in clear garbage bags and close-pin the top shut. Mist ever once in a while and the plant will pitcher very good for you.

    I hadn't thought about clear bags. I will try that and see what happens next. I have begun misting today, so well see what happens.

    just so yah know it may take a couple weeks or more before a pitcher starts forming even if just spraying it is enough of a boost.

    Don't over mist in the bags though. Don't want it like a stagnant cesspool in there! The bags will essentially be a mini greenhouse, don't let them overheat if you are able to hang them or put them in some windows to get sunlight, vent the top a little bit if you do put it in the sun.
