    Nepenthes spectabilis x aristolochioides???

    Hi group. I'm sitting here in Germany, browsing the internet for things to ask for for my birthday in August, and I run across this little bugger. First of all, I am a huge sucker for spectabilis and hybrids thereof. Plus, I've always taken a liking to aristolochioides. This little guy is just incredible, I think. Has anybody here grown it? I'm trying to figure out if it will do well in my conditions, etc. It is a rather expensive investment, so I need to be sure. I'm assuming it grows as a typical highland, but I could be wrong. Anyhow, if you guys have any info on this, please let me know. I can't find anything on it.

    Coincidentally, I received one in the mail today. I imagine it will do well in HL to intermediate conditions.

    This is a very hardy hybrid. I purchased one like 5 months ago and it has taken a wide range of temperature fluctuations. I just recently purchased another like a month ago and it has had no complaints either, while at the same time dealing with very warm daytime temperatures in my uninsulated garage.
