    I grow mine on my south, including N. truncata Highland N. spectabilis and a N. gothica but I had to acclimate it to my window since I did not get it from where you bought your nepenthes today, if they are already acclimated take advantage of it and grow them as windowsill plants.
    yay for windowsill plants!!

    yes I agree its so much cooler to have nepenthes on my window instead of in a terrarium, I am going to add flourescent lighting for winter and when the daylight levels get lower I will increase the photoperiod and it will reach it's peak when its the winter equinox hmm perhaps 20 hours.

    the particular vendor you bought them from is not very fond of terrariums.
    not quite...they may not be fond of terrariums...but they grow their stock inside greenhouses...which have high humidity and obscured light. seveal plants i got from them took a nose dive when i thought they were all OK with lower humidity. you dont expect to get a rajah or lowii from them and it be fully adjusted to low humidity do you?

    Give neps 16 hours of light all 365 days of the year. There is no reason to mess with their photo period whatsoever.

    and it will reach it's peak when its the winter equinox hmm perhaps 20 hours.
    Way too much light. And winter's already over...I assume you mean summer?

    they do have a section of there greenhouse that they mist and I believe that section includes lowii, hamata and rajah.
    most of there nepenthes they sell you would be safe putting on a window and then there are "crazy" people lik ElGecko who has his rajah growing on a windowsill.

    No, I'm pretty sure he meant winter... I just don't know why.
