    Hey all. I was just wondering what kind of culture Predator requires. Is it best to keep humidity above 75% like hamata? Also, high light or low light? Just to give an idea of my conditions, sibuyanensis, khasiana and x ventrata grow very well in my conditions. Carunculata grows quickly although it hasn't pitchered yet. Thanks all.

    I'n my experience, predator in not really very picky as far as temps go. They do seem to like bright light. Should grow very well along side your hamata.
    Hope that helps,

    Thanks for the info. I can't wait til it comes! Actually I can. In fact, I have no choice, but you know what I mean! Does Predator have the amazing pitcher to leaf ratio like its parents? I'd think yes from some of the photos I've seen.

    I believe it does. I find it an extremely rewarding hybrid. My Predator is the only one of altogether 106 neps in my shadehouse that has never, ever had a pitcherless leaf, as far as I can recall (and I pamper all my neps recklessly!)

    What temps do you grow yours at? Also, does anyone know whether the truncata Exotica used was highland or lowland? Probably lowland because Predator can grow like an intermediate.

    From what I understand, the truncata used was a striped peristome lowlander. I was growing mine as highlanders at first. They really grew fast at those temps. They outgrew the space in just a few months, so I ended up moving them to my intermediate lowland tank. They slowed down a little bit, but they are doing fine in there. I'm gonna bet that this is one of those plants that grows well in just about any conditions you can provide. A very robust hybrid! easier than a ventricosa!

    I agree. I grow all my neps outside. Here in Northern Taiwan that means lowland conditions during the summer, lowland to intermediate conditions during spring and fall, and heated greenhouse in winter. So far, the Predator's been performing very well.

    Hurrah! I hope it doesn't grow slower as a highland than as an intermediate. If it does, I can always make another tank...
