    No - I can't believe it... But there are a number of posts on the subject both here and CPUK. Here's an FAQ:

    I have one that is open tray. SW window sill, mix of sand & peat, with LFS on top, watered 3X per week from the bottom, and misted (very textbook). Its winter leaves I tried sprouting in a tray of swampy, live LFS, overlaying sand & peat mix, SW window sill, open tray, kept wet all the time, watered from the top (not textbook), They have been growing like this for almost a year.

    I have both the regular form and 'Hummer's giant'. I grow them with my highland nepenthes--cool temps, high humidity, constant air circulation. I top water the plants. So far they don't seem difficult.

    I also grow my plants on the "dry side", near a window in the laundry room.



    Good growing,
