I'd recommend Jcal too, he has some great plants. Just as a heads up, all of the sect. Orchidioides Utrics that weren't formerly in sect. Iperua are all more or less highlanders, so if haven't grown HL plants before I'd suggest starting with something on the intermediate side.
U. reniformis is the easiest of the group, and you're already growing that successfully so U. nelumbifolia or U. alpina would probably be a good step up.
Hey w03, how's it goin?
While your assessment of U. Reniformis and U. Alpina is in keeping with text book growing conditions recommended for the plants, I have personally
found them to be MUCH more forgiving than they are sometimes made out to be.
I have grown BOTH plants in "temperate" conditions initially, and currently in an increasingly "intermediate" setup. I started with a pretty consistent temp. range of around 80* during the day, dropping no lower than 74* at night. Just basically an ambient drop combined with lower temps of the lights being off. Currently, my daytime temps do not exceed 81* and my nighttime drop has been as low as 66* the last week or so, and 70* consistently for over a month. I have yet to notice any real difference in these, or ANY of my "intermediate" plants for that matter.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not by any means suggesting that "intermediate" conditions aren't appreciated by "intermediate" plants.. I'm simply suggesting that these plants, and many others, may be slightly more forgiving than one might think. It's been my experience (all be it VERY SHORT), that if humidity and light levels are satisfied, temperature drop can fudged a little. Especially if the particular plant's upper temperature limits are not reached during the day, the nighttime drop seems less critical.
Just my experience so far
. I have U. Alpina and U. Reniformis "Effant Terrible" spreading like wildfire in my grow area.
Hope this helps!
