    Whenever I've got my own place and enough extra cash I'm going to do that for sure! I had no idea that portable AC units went down to 50 degrees.

    Hey the thermostat on the wall says it goes down to 50 degrees. Well there ya go. I'm so un-observant sometimes lmao.

    I do not find this plant picky at all.
    I use equal parts perlite, peat moss, and dry LFS for my soil.
    Water twice a week.
    Growing in a south facing windowsill for over a year now.

    Alex,
    That is not true about the cooling. During the day with the sun shinning in, it heat the room up to the high 70's. Then at night it drops to the mid 70's.

    Your night temperature is only in the mid 70's? I don't understand how you grow them this way. It makes me tempted to try to do what you do since my nights are in the mid 60's and days in the low-mid 70's, but then I'm sure mine would croak.

    You must have a magic window for real real!

    It's easy. The plants can not read, so they do not realize that they actually want a bigger temp drop and night and more humidity.

    Actually, it's probably because your plant is still quite small. It is fairly well known that when
    small, highland Nepenthes are much more tolerant of warm night temperatures. However,
    when mature, they are much less tolerant. So, I must ask: How large is your plant?
    Still pretty small? If so, I would not assert that this species is tolerant of warm nights.

    Check his N. hamata pics, first. Talk about a species that is supposedly very fickle.
