    It would be much more beneficial when discussing lowland/highland, ultra highland or whatever if you list actual day and night temperatures. People have different ideas exactly what they are so it is a generalization at best.

    As for your N. mirabilis Adam, what are your actual temperatures? Lets have a look 4 months from now. Two weeks is not enough time in the slightest to claim it is growing just fine as an ultrahighland, and gives others the wrong idea.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    should live for a while, but grows much better in the summer with higher night temps. I have one of the same clone you have growing and mine is pitchuring well in temps 80 day-65 night, humidity 70-90%. Very tough plant but I am not sure It would survive long term in ultra highland conditions. That said, I have many lowland neps that are growing well in intermediate to highland conditions for 3+ yrs.

    Jumping into this convo a little late but..

    I grew a batch of mirabilis from seed a few months ago and they have been in highland conditions and are currently outgrowing my ventrata and all my other "speedy" nepenthes. They are crazy... They are the only thing that pitchers consistently for me regardless of humidity (which is about 20% with the woodstove going). I think a few members remember me trying to unload some of them and I'd love to hear how they all are doing. But I really think it depends on the batch of seed... I know I started mine with heating mats then got lazy and took them off. Only then did they shoot up like rockets.

    Hope this helps,
    -J.P.

    I can not say much about my N. mirabilis (Mekjuang Titi) except that I have nearly 100% germination in highland conditions 7Os during the day and 50s at night. So far about 85% less than that with albomarginata seeds in the same conditions sowed at the same time.

    I've heard of folks having great growth with some highlanders in lowlander conditions. I'll give an update in a few months.
