    Vulgaris produces a deep violet flower. If it is light blue I would asume it to be either primuliflora or caerulea.

    nepenthes gracilis,

    P.vulgaris requires temperatures below 25C, high humidity and wet soils. They are very sensitive plants and will die easily when the humidity drops or the temperature gets above the 80F mark. When they go dormant in the winter they are best refidgerated in warmer climates. They require about a half year dormancy period, which is one of the many reasons why most commercial nurseries that sell plants to home improvement stores do not offer these. I have heard that the cultivation of this plants is not possible or at least extremely difficult in terrariums.

    If you live in the far North than these can be cultivated outdoors year-round without too much difficulty. It is very difficult to cultivate this plant if you live somewhere like Texas or CA... where temperatures can be very hot over the spring/summer.

    By winter they would have already formed dormant buds so if the roots freeze solid the plant is not harmed. P.vulgaris is one of the most cold hardy cps out there. It can tolerate temperatures well below freezing. In its natural habitat around the world P.vulgaris is often buried under several feet of snow in the winter.
