Do you like that...
a list of...
I just found the fact some vendors define some nepentes as "Highland but also grows well under lowland conditions".
wich one will be the average altitudinal distribution of this nepenthes?
I'm not sure but I remember reading somewere that say between 600 to 2800 m...
N. Albomarginata, N. Ampullaria
N. Bellii, N. Bicalcarata, N. Rafflesiana
N. Sanguinea (Orange Pitcher), Cephalotus Follicularis.
some neps grow ok in warm or cool temps.
hybrids generally grow well at room temps.
all my highlanders grow in the windowsill at room temp, plus my ll truncata!!
neps are tougher than most people think.
You are in florida, correct?
If so, your summer nights are probably pretty warm. I am in Atlanta, GA, which has similar warm nights. Some growers nearby grow some highlanders fairly well.
The following highlanders can take lowland conditions.
N. truncata (highland)
N. veitchii highland (hit or miss, some clones can take heat, others can't)
N. gymnamphora ( has a huge altitude range from 600-2800m, depending on the clone, you may or may not be sucessful)
All highland x lowland hybrids can grow as lowlands
highland x highland hybrids are hit or miss, but are generally more tolerant than highland species. However, a hybrid between two tricky highland species like N. sibuyanensis x hamata will be MUCH more difficult than a hybrid between an easy and a more difficult highlander like N. ventricosa x talangensis.
Well one vendor in hawaii(they live in hawaii lowlander area)
They said I can grow many lowlanders in intermediate highlander conditions.
I got a few from them.......
