    alright how would this baby do indoors in my house? temps are 60-65 in summer and a bit warmer in the winter. humidity in my house is around 50% at all times (except in winter then its lower). i want to know some othe things about it too... how slow is it normally? how big does it get? got any pictures? which would be better for my house, highland form or lowland form?
    Thanks

    highland should do alright............prolly want more humidity though for reliable pitchering 75% i would think. my mature plant grows pretty fast, not as fast as Rokko or Ventrata but no slow poke either. new leaf every 4-6 weeks(on my plant that means about 4-6 feet a year when its going good) will post pics tomorrow

    Misting increases RH for like 5 minutes. Don't bother. Put it on a pebble tray.

    pebble trays don;t do anything either Clint. The orchid people have proven that time and time again, but its still used as advice. Pebble trays are USELESS. I stopped using them after about a week because they are a pain to keep up. You have to trap the humidity if you plant on keeping the humidity inreased.

    heres my favorite veitchii, doubt you will find it though the parent plant was only about 2-3 feet from leaf tip to leaf tip but it had prolly 30 feet of vine or more
