    N. ventrata will grow much faster in lowland conditions than in highland.

    I have N. sanguinea growing in 365days of temperature in the 80s. During the hot months when the temperature for day and night reaches the 90s, it does stop growing. Once the weather cools down a 3-4 degrees, it would resume growth after a month.

    N. fusca and N. copelandii too stops growing during the hot months. N. sibuyanensis dies in my conditions. N. ventricosa is easy and pitchers readily.

    Highland hybrids do much better like N. sibuyanensis x ventricosa. Other hybrids with a lowland parent helps a lot e.g. truncata x izumeae.

    But I doubt your conditions are as hot as mine, with as little day-night fluctuations.

    It takes quite a bit of neglect to kill something like a ventrata of a Jusith Finn!

    My N.ventrata absolutely HATES lowland conditions. It didnt make a single pitcher (apart from a deformed small one) during the heat of summer. Now its cooler and tis coming back.

    Mnn~ on such conditions, someone fine and someone die!
    on my conditions, in summer.

    Temperature: day 30-36C night 28-32C
    Humidity: day 55-75% night 70-85%

    someone like N.ventricosa N.khasiana are very happy. grow very fast.
    but my poor N.mikei N.talangensis stop growing. the leaves start turn black.
    Finally he will say goodbye with you.

    N.mikei
    N.mikei_turn black

    N.copelandii
    N.copelandii_turn black

    so, if you don't have any cooling system.
    Please do not growing highland on lowland conditions.

    Cindy,

    I can't grow ventricosa at all. I had one once that grew (even flowered), but since then they all die. Sanguinea survives, but does not like it too much.

    Theres someone in Hawaii that has multiple copelandiis growing out in the sun. I think they are all seed-grown Apo forms, so perhaps there is a difference between the different forms.

    My N. ventrata is a cutting from a plant grown outdoors in south Florida. It absolutely loves heat and humidity and seems to thrive.
    I also have a N. sanguinea orange growing in lowland conditions and is growing and pitchering very well.
    Both these plants have been growing in lowland conditions from the start.
