    This is how I grew my Nepenthes ventricosa. Room temperature, under a lamp about 12 hours a day, and watered with tap water. It grew well and thrived.

    Would Nepenthes singalana grow the same way?

    I like Nepenthes singalana. Mine's been a somewhat slow, but steady, grower. The pitchers last long. Mine's now been growing in a windowsill environment (ie, low humidity) for the last 3 months and hasn't skipped a beat.

    I think it's a 12v florescent bulb.

    CFL bulb in a desklamp such as that should provide good lighting without too much heat. They do get a little warm though which could pose an issue for Nepenthes singalana. On the other hand N. singalana like nice bright light..Certainly can't hurt too much to try. You will need another lamp though as it is difficult to light more than one plant with such a small bulb and fixture.

    You may want to have your tap water tested though or purchase ro/distilled water from the store. Perhaps you can collect some rain water? Mineral buildup could be a potential problem otherwise. Particularly with the plants sitting in those undrained plastic saucers if the water is allowed to sit and evaporate.

    Florida seems like it might be a problem for highlanders, but I like mine:
