    Depending upon where you live and whether your nights fall into the low sixties or, more preferably, the fifties, some growers can get away with growing their highland Nepenthes outdoors in the simplest cold frame or in an unheated garage under lights. I do both in Northern California, bringing in outdoor plants only when there is a threat of frost.

    Some that do very well under those conditions include Nepenthes aristolochoides, ephippiata, hamata, lowii, macrophylla, ovata, villosa, among others.

    Those highland / ultra-highland conditions are also appropriate for Heliamphora and Darlingtonia . . .

    I grow mine in a basement setup. They get 40's at night in the winter. Summer they kinda slow down due to warmer nights.

    I grow mine in my basement which stays cold enough for most of the year.

    I'm with BigBella. I grow in Northern California. We have cool, humid breezes all summer, and above-freezing winters. I grow in a basement, which is naturally at moderate temperatures year round. I use T5 and T12 fluorescent tubes, no terrariums. My temps are highland/intermediate, and I can grow almost anything in there, from macrophyllas and hamatas to N. ampularias. I've flowered N. viking and N. spectabilis in my grow room.
