    How slow is nepenthes villosa?

    From some places i've heard it's the slowest growing of them all. Other places i've heard that they grow at a similair rate as nepenthes rajah or lowii. with ideal conditions, what sounds more right?

    I have around 40F night temperatures and okay light levels along with more than 70% humidity, could i grow it okay?

    Hrm. Probably, but I would do something with the villosa...like ice bottles or something. I don't know.

    By my understanding, it's possible to grow them together, but rajah's needs are generally more modest.

    Fourty degree nights are great for villosa. Are you able to sustain those temperatures year round?

    Like you said, I have heard varied opinions on the growth rate. The only real way to find out is by actually growing it.

    Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?

    I would get more experiance with neps first evergreen. And of course villosa can grow with rajah, have you never seen N x Kinabaluensis? Its rajah x villosa. A naturally occuring hybrid.

    villosa is sloooooooow. A few people in europe have 14 year old plants, grow from seed, that are less than 5" in diameter. Othe rplants from the same batch are almost vining, so, go figure. Granted there are many factors affecting speed, but still its slow.
