    Nepenthes stenophylla. Is this an ultra or can it be grown intermediately too?
    If Hamatas were not so expencive I would try one of those and grow it like Elgecko does as a windowsil plant.
    I am still looking so more questions to come.

    Thanks Glider!!

    I had the typical info given by the sellers of the plants, but I want real world experiences of people with these plants. I just knwo from growing other plants that the liturature will say one thing, but the plant will do just fine growing in totaly different culture as well. so thats basicly what I am going for. Want other experiences with the plants. Because almost all the liturature will say that Elgecko shouldn;t be able to grow his Hamata like he does, but from the pictures he is doing a bang up job. The plan looks nice.

    A windowsill hamata?!

    I've yet to try a highlander - just 4 lowlanders here, with one growing well in a windowsill (though producing smaller pitchers than I know it could in a terrarium). Do highlanders generally do better under household conditions? I got the impression they were a lot harder than lowlanders!

    As long as you harden the plant off to the conditions you want it in, generally they will accept it IF you do it slowly and in the right method. IN regards to N. stenophylla, it is a typical highlander and should be tolerant of warmer conditions. I've had no trouble with it.

    Just to through out some info on some plants.

    Looks like N. stenophylla has a large range in nature: 1000M-2600M

    N. rafflesiana: 0M-1200M

    N. hamata: 1400M-2500M


    Here's a discussion that was back in Jan. about my N. hamata with some pics.

    A plant I would really like to grow is N. villosa. 2400M-3200M I would not try this plant as a windowsill plant, unless I got one for trade somewhere. I think as high an altitude it grows, it would need a temp drop.

    Here's a link I use for altitude of neps.
