    I also agree, windowsill growing is the way to go! I only have north facing windows in my apt. and all of my nepenthes are doing very well (I supplement them with (2) 100 watt equivalent CFL's all day long.) I would say that most highland nepenthes can get very acclimated to low humidity conditions. Really nice Miranda. I must get my hands on one someday soon.

    Mirandas are fantastic plants.

    I've seen pitchers so large on them they rival the largest truncata pitchers.

    Unfortunately not on MINE, but the Miranda at the Roger Williams Greenhouse (stewareded by the NECPS) had pitchers that were 17-18" lid to base. Just HUGE.

    Updates:





    A few days after the above pics were taken:





    And then it starts to get kinda disgusting, these huge gobs of opaque, ant-eaten, syrupy nectar unevenly lining the peristome. I didn't take pics of that, but the ants that live on the windowsill make a mess of the otherwise pretty nectar drops.
