    I thought it was interesting that Wistuba had adnata listed as a highland plant too. I don't know the altitude but I saw it once growing near eustachya, albomarginata, and an occasional gracilis and one ampullaria so I would say it was almost certainly lowland elevation probably around 800 meters. Don't know if this is a requirement but it was growing in a very wet and shaded location - not sure it got any direct sunlight. Perhaps this would account for it doing well in cooler conditions than plants from similar elevations? Or perhaps some of the plants in cultivation are just getting more light than they really want rather than having issues with your temps? Just some thoughts. Rich

    How large is the plant in that photograph? It looks as if it's growing on those vines, and not attached to any substrate.
    Check my growlist! Nothing currently available for trade...

    We have no trouble growing it in lowland heat of Kuala Lumpur. The nursery where I got it have a 40% shade netting.

    I love the leaves when they are at the vining stage.
