    I grow 2 large rokko x fallaxs...fallaxi? whatever...I have two of them haha. Anyway, I gorw them as intermediates, though I'm quite sure they would appreciate it more as highlanders. From my experience, they refuse to pitcher unless places in a high humidity environment. I can offer more advice as to if growing it as a highlander is a better idea in a few months, as temperatures are just beginning to drop where I live.

    Just look at the parents and that tells you whether they are high or low or intermediate.

    macrovulgaris is a highlander

    reinwardtiana is a highlander

    This hybrid is a highlander


    x rokko is an intermediate

    stenophylla is a highlander

    This hybrid is an intermediate

    Easy

    What do you mean you don't see anything? All I did was break down the crosses by parent...

    I keep my (x rokko) x stenophylla outdoors all year here in Northern Taiwan, where there's tropical conditions from April to October and chilly conditions all the way down to 3C from November to April. It's growing very well and has just produced its latest six-inch pitcher.

    I do the same with macrovulgaris x reinwardtiana, but this one doesn't seem to like the summer heat too much. Or maybe it's because it's still a baby.

    Nevertheless, I think both these guys have the potential to do well in a whole slew of different environs (high humidity a must, of course).
