    What is the coldest temps it could manage without slowing down (chock) or dying? can it take lower then 5 C? (41F)
    And how high temperatures can it manage? without slowing down or dying.
    Need all the experience I can get...

    My N. rajah lives outdoors year round, and the low temp we got last winter was around 40F, and it didn't seem to mind much. It grows slowly out there, but is still healthy and pitchering.

    Ok..yes I know that because many growers says that it should get down to the 50s at night. but can they take the 40s? And will they survive if the temps hit the 90s?

    Low to mid 50s as night temps are recommended. A bit lower or higher shouldn't be a prob.

    Daytime temps should be from 75-83 or so. A bit lower is ok, a bit higher maybe, but not recommended as much.
    Update: Parents convinced to allow me to keep greenhouse heated over winter. Most species will not be lost. Too lazy to update growlist.

    As long as you don't go freeze it, it will be fine.

    OK thx for the replies.
    One more question. Can it grow as an intermediate in winter for about 4 months without dying to?

    Mine took temps down around 37 degrees last winter with day time temps in the fifties and grew fine, though I couldn't really tell if it slowed down or not. I think cold weather and wet potting medium will rot the roots unless the mix is well aerated, so keep it on the dry-ish side if it gets cold. Mine sort of grows as an intermediate during the summer, but it is a nearly constant 60-70 degrees all day and night where I live until September, then it rises to 80 degrees with 20 percent humidity for a few weeks.
