Today I was at a garden center and saw two big neps in hanging baskets and decided I needed one. Upon further inspection at home it’s has no tag denoting what type. Looks pretty typical to me. Any input on it would be nice. It’s inside currently but do you guys think it would like Tennessee summer weather? I only have an east facing window so it might be better outside.

Very nice plant! I never get lucky enough to have any of those at garden centers near me! Others will chime in I'm sure, but I would say it's a 'Ventrata' (Alata crossed with Ventricosa). You can see the traits of both plants apparent in the cross. Nice find, best of luck with it!

I'm in Tennessee at the moment as well. (moving soon but that's a different story).

I had mine in the greenhouse and unfortunately they have started to yellow a little bit. I had to move them inside to a window that gets East to West sun almost all day.

It seems that the heat and the constant sun was too much in the greenhouse. I have seen some on porches here doing very well. So I think a sunny window might be the best spot.
