Nice! Update if they do ok in steady nighttime temps above 60 (that's what you have right?). They look great! Did you ever get that nebularum from florae in the auction?

Maybe I can be the test subject for jamban...

Are there any plants you need tested that are relatively cheap?

Too bad that you lost the nebularum. Is 65 the temps in summer too?

You don’t have to do that! If you really wanted too though, I have been really wanting a Jacquelineae or diatas. Hear that they’re both strictly highland (hence Hamata *wink*wink*) I don’t know if that’s true though.

No that’s just for winter and fall, summer usually gets an all time low of around 73.

Ok, that is perfect! We have pretty much identical temperarures. My parents wouldn't let me get a hamata lol. I can try jacquelineae. I can't right now because I'm getting some other new Nepenthes, but I will later. Diatas seems like there is a very low chance it does well. It's almost ultra highland.

Good for you! I’m afraid I have a Palawanensis :/ Hey, at least we know it’s Intermidiate friendly. Don’t let me influence you though! I highly recommend going through ALL 19 PAGES; they have some pretty interesting stuff if you look.

Ok, I figured you might lol. And I have looked threw the 19 pages like a million times :D idk why but it's so fun

Where did you get your palawanensis? How has it done in intermediate? The range on the guide thing is right in the intermediate sweet spot. I have $50 on the gift card and I've had it for almost a year. I don't know what to get with it! I'll go threw the 19 pages again to see if they've gotten anything new

Have you tried attenboroughii, lowii, chaniana, flava, lingulata, singalana, tentaculata, burbidgeae, and bongso?

Sorry for that big list lol.

Do you do anything to keep your lowlanders warm?

Nope, but I really want too though! Especially Lowii and Attenboroughii, I’ve really wanted to do those for a while but haven’t really gotten around to them.

My 2 little lowlanders? Rafflesiana has been really good. I’ve found it can handle a wide range of temperature’s/RH. Northiana is SLOW. I can kinda tell it’s suffering not being in lowland condition’s. It’s taking forever to put out a new leaf. I have half a mind to re-bag it, let it get some size, then retry the little experiment. It’s inside btw.

I’d say Lumut from what I’ve heard. I don’t really think it maters all that much though.

I got mine from florae collabrative. I think you’ll find that a recurring if you look at my grow list :mrgreen: Its done really good in intermediate. I didn't even see a sign of stress when I first got it other than stalling for a little while.

If you are getting plants from Bergen, I would warn you that my experience with them hasn't been the best. Along with the plants I got a helping of pests as well. Four of the plants died, compared to 0 plants from other sources. Good luck.

Edit: if you look at all the product images they show, there's some telltale signs of past pest infestations. Deformed leaves and lack of pitchers being things to look out for.

Their greenhouses were lacking in humidity during my visit. So spider mites are an issue. There's probably other pests as well. Lots of the plants there had somewhat weak, droopy leaves with a somewhat dry, papery feel and not many pitchers. Those pitchers that did form seem to be oddly shaped or more papery than normal.

I could test jacquelineae and jamban if needed, though my jacquelineae was attacked by the bugs from Bergen and I don't know if it'll last. Besides, my in house environment seems to be mainly lowland, as the lowlanders I've moved out of the humid growing area haven't stalled and took less than a week to acclimate, even northiana.

Yeah, I just ask cause I found a Tambusisi for $90.

Ok, good to know. I'll do some thinking on what to try. They're all great, but some probably have a very low success rate. Especially the lowii, attenboroughii, and lingulata. It is cooling off in our house now that we're getting low 30s outside at night. I think it gets down to 65ish in my room.
