Will truncata lowland and highland take full sun?
Yes, provided it doesn't get too hot, or too dry.
It depends on whether you're talking lowland or highland, and it also depends on humidity. With higher humidity, they can cope with higher temperatures, within reason. In high humidity, highland truncata is fine up to around 30-32C, lowland up to 35 - 38C. If it's dry, I wouldn't let either go much above 30C.
I cannot trasmit you my experience bacause I grow truncata i terrarium because it was a young plant. This summer I will put outside only the truncata highland...
The lowland form will stay in home in terrarium,ehehe!
Anyway I can tell you that when I got the highland form she stayed outside from June to October with 2 hours of direct sunlight of the MORNIG!

fc3srx713b, your plants look great...I am keeping my eye out for the highland form...supposed to be hairier than the lowland...is this true with yours?Originally Posted by [b
From my actuall experiences ( very poor ) there are a lot of clones of Nepenthes truncata and actually I have a friend of mine called Daniele Righetti who is growing an hairy highland truncata ( bough from Gert from Carniflora : he told it was an highland from Borneo Exotics seller).
Here are its pictures [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] it has no red peristome but I think because it is still young ).
Besides my truncata is also an highland clone from Wistuba this time and has re peristome but no hairs at all.
I have also 2 little lowland truncatas and they are a little hairy...where should be the true?
