    Yes, at least near the coast. I just protect them from the occasional frost; and they more than tolerate the lower daytime temps . . .

    Thanks for the link corky. Judging by the store he visited, it seems he does live (at least near) the bay area. He also apparently visited that forum just 3 days ago, but hasn't posted in more than a year. That talk about needing to protect Nepenthes from a cold spell scares me!

    I have to say though, Joel's website was the main driver for me to shake off the "Nepenthes are hard" stigma and become more adventurous with the plants. I'm really glad it exists and hope he's willing and able to participate in the community more in the future.
