    I grow mirabilis, truncata, rafflesiana, and sumatrana here in inland San diego, indoors. All of them pitcher. Think I would be sucsesful in growing it here? I've had a northiana before, and I guess it wasn't too too finicky. Humidity has been kinda low here, but when I get my RO unit, I should finally be able to run a humidifier 24/7.

    I grow my northiana in LFS/peat/perlit.
    It took a little time for it to start of after shipment but its a steady and modarate grower now.
    I also moved it to a little shadier spot.
    Need all the experience I can get...

    Not trying to be a pain here, but as an experienced grower, not as much as Jeff, please only anticipate on taking this plant if you KNOW you can grow it...these sound like mature cuttings and those are a rarity of N. northiana....I have a small plant that I successfully am growing and to think of a mature cutting would be godly, so please keep your mind thinking on the correct path, don't make these cuttings go to waste.

    Thanks Nep, but I don't have anything for trade and would get shot at the moment if I bought a plant. I am going to have to pass. Thanks for posting it I hope the ones that end up with the cutting do well. There will be next time.

    I second that about experienced grower.
    I bought one at the ICPS meeting in San Francisco 2000.
    My plant was about 6" across with two-three basal shoots.
    I took it home and it died back to nearly nothing.
    The plant has slowly and painstakingly regrown to it's former size
    only now.
    I'm growing it in warm conditions 70+ temps in
    an open acidic mix: peat, perlite, orchid bark, LFS

    I've often wondered about repotting into another more basic mixture but didn't want to risk the plant.

    I know a number of people who have been successful with
    this species, so I do believe that it is not as difficult
    as some imply. Furthermore, some clones are easier than others.

    So, as I stated before, I am trying to get my clone, which
    seems to me to be very easy to grow, out to as many people
    as possible. I have done nothing special to grow this plant
    to maturity; it is in the same compost that I use for all my
    other lowland Nepenthes, and is treated the same. The only
    real difference is that I grow it under fluorescent lamps due to
    the fact that N. northiana appears to prefer shadier conditions
    than most Nepenthes.

    I have never experienced dying back or any other problems
    with this plant. In fact, I feel that it is far easier to grow than
    most highland species, and is an ideal candidate for an indoor
    growing chamber.

    I do believe I could grow this one if it does like hot tempuratures, my greenhouse gets around 90 degrees and humid in the day, and in the 70s at night, it is consistently humid if you think this would work and have any available please pm me
