    I wonder I got a few neps from a nursery he said he mostly grows lowlanders but had some intermediates my neps are all starting to grow but one guy who had some leaf dying around the edges thing(and no growth) and I am pondering it may have been miss IDed since the pitcher it had did not look like the specie. So what I'm saying is I may have a lowlander but if it was would it be dead by now ?
    The nursery people are in hawaii and had a nursery in oregon,they said that the lowlander intermediate highlander things is not right really he said that they may be found lsightly higher than the rest then deemed "highlander" he said you can break the rules and grow them in different climates. I am not sure though that is what he and his wife said though........ (no I did not have time to drive 2 hours to any nurseries in hawaii)

    WHat plant are you talking about jm? Reinwardtiana?
    Gimme a pic. But just because something is a LL doesn't mean it would necessarily die in your climate. Joel (neps around the house) grows some lower intermediate/LL stuff and it does fine.

    My camera is broken but the leafs are the short "half" like leafs,
    the outside edges of them died (turned brown like it got burned but it did not)
    It's not getting worse but it may just keep on sulking,I may just put it in a small closet shelf with a cfl to keep it warmer I dunno it may just be a stressed nep or a lowlanderish intermediate. It is hitting 60 at night in my tank in my room so if it is a warm liking intermediate it may just be freaking out slightly. It says on the tag Sibuyanensis but I don't think so,
    unfortunately the pitchers it had croaked,I couldn't make up my mind on hybrids so I just said "whatever has color and looks nice (I am not very picky about nepenthes yet) that could grow inside of my house" He used to live by my area so he knows the climate .

    "half like" leaves? Are they somewhat heart shaped?

    That might be truncata (shot in the dark, anyone?). Trucata is technically a lowlander, but it can certainly tollerate cooler nights than most lowlanders. Slows it down a little, but otherwise there aren't any adverse affects.
