Don't keep pings in the same terrarium as highland Neps, IMO. They could do well with intermediates or lowlands, where you would leave them inside the terrarium for their summer period and outside in bright sunlight for the winter (don't keep them together year round because highland neps will want to be too wet in the ping rest period).Hey all, I have a quick question. I want to set up a new CP terrarium to keep as many genera and species as possible, exempting Sarracenia, Dionaea, and others that require a drastic winter dormancy (and get tall like Sarracenia; I'm somewhat limited on space), but I'm unsure which way I should go; highland-ultra highland? Or more intermediate-lowland? I am leaning more towards intermediate as I want to be able to keep as many species as possible.
I really like N. bicalcarata and N. truncata, but at the same time I'd really like some N. hamata or N. lowii; I would also like to keep a variety of Drosera and Pings (Pings don't require such a drastic dormancy for the most part I believe).
I would appreciate any suggestions/ideas y'all might have for me!
If you're space limited, don't go for lowii or bicalcarata; they get gigantic. If you want as wide a taxonomic range as possible, consider highland with a couple neps, some winter growing sundews, cephalotus, a couple of the easier terrestrial utriculari, and maybe Sarracenia psittacina (probly doesn't need a winter dormancy). Don't go for ultra-highland unless you're fairly experienced, but if you do, I'd throw together some Brazilian highland drosera, maybe, along with heliamphora, orchidioides utricularia, and some neps.
