    Provided that myriad conditions are met (including some shading, reasonable daytime Tbs with relatively high humidity), any state where there exists cool to cold humid nights without frost. They can grow well in Northern California (from personal experience), Oregon, and Washington, but growing any highland tropical outside can be a complicated issue.

    One would do better with older established Nepenthes hamata than those just out of tissue culture. The tiny plants are touchy and the adults can survive far more punishment . . .

    How could you supply outside humidity? Spraying it with water and put a plastic bag over it?

    Are they fast growers?

    Putting bags over them might cook them.

    I've found that humidity does not have to be that high. Anything above 50 is fine. Spraying will not do much and a bag will lead to more problems.
