    It's winter, which is actually kinda cool in california. Plus its really cold in other parts of the country so shipping plants isn't the best idea.

    Where is the website owner's collection located? Nowhere on the website does he/she mention where exactly are his Nepenthes growing.

    Has it been updated in 4 years?

    I'm wondering where specifically because SF and LA are two very different climate regions.

    He describes his climate as suitable for highland Nepenthes, and I honestly can't think of anywhere in the US that is, whether in California or not.

    Northern California, with its warm to hot days and significantly cooler nights, certainly fit that bill. I have plenty of highlanders which thrive outside here . . .
