    Good luck with those seeds! I bought an established plant and placed it in the 4 tier "greenhouse" at the east window. I repotted it in some sort of mixture...can't remember what. Mostly I think it was what came out of pots that housed nepenthes that were repotted or moved to the greenhouse in the sky.

    I find it very odd that your source talks about dry air environments and lots of humidity. Isn't that a contradiction??

    We'll see if this thing goes anywhere or not. So far it hasn't died and from what I hear that is reason enough to celebrate, although I haven't had it for long. I soaked the dirt upon repotting and it is still moist so I haven't messed with it since.

    Best of luck to you. That germination window is crazy!

    It said they require high humidity, and don't belong in dry air.

    It sounds like something you could grow year-round outside in a place like FL, where the winters are cool and frost free and the summers are warm. Do they require cool winters to flower?

    My bat plants grow in my outdoor nepenthes nursery i have here in Australia.I have mine in about 50% shade with high humidity.They are an understory plant that like to be moist but not overwatered which causes them to rot.In my conditions here in the tropics they will flower just before the wet season.Good luck with growing them.Hope they do very well for you.
