    He'll probably need to do like WildBill and mulch. The Island is indeed warmer than where we are, but it does freeze. Temps do get as low as 10 F, on occasion, and certainly many times in the 20's. I don't have the statistics but they do seem to be ~5-7 degrees warmer than WNY.

    It doesn't hurt the plants? that's a relief; when I bought a pitcher, It had that stuff in the pot, and I got worried.

    Perlite won't hurt the plants. I was told though that you should repot any plants in perlite once a year due to , I believe, the risiing acidity level that perlite causes over time. As long as nothing laced with fertilizer is used, and aeration is good (for Nepenthes), growth should be fine...
