    I don't actually have a thermometer in my tank but I'd estimate mine is growing at about 70-80 F. High humidity is a must for these things to pitcher, that is why they often bury their tendrils.

    I noticed before that Andreas was calling them lowlands. THEY ARE NOT!

    Apart from that, I just keep mine off to the side of my tank in such a way that it is not actually directly under the fluorescent fixture but still getting light. I have read that they enjoy slightly shadier conditions.

    My sib loves these conditions (although I really need to repot it) and makes pitchers on every leaf. Try this and you should get good results.

    BTW- I do not using heating or cooling implements either. Just a 20 gal. tank w/ 2 4ft. bulbs.

    N. sibuyanensis only does well for me in the winter, it really likes something which I am suspecting is cooler temperatures and somewhat lower light levels. And it need a new shoe size hehe

    A neighbor's cat knocked down my N. sibuyanensis today, spilling it from the pot. My N. rafflesiana was also down, along with a few assorted orchids including, most disastrously, my pot of Cyp. acaules. A testing lab is too good for that d*mn cat. Ooops, I mean c*t. The filter might allow the word, but it's the worst obscenity I know.

    Geeze, people with extremely "adventurous/curious" animals (ie., cats) should try and control them more! Esp. when someone else's property is at stake. How badly are ur plants damaged?
