    Jack, northiana are lowlander. They are limestone dwellers, found on cliff surffaces and slopes. At most the highest limestone hill was approx 800 ft asl.

    That older thread referenced was mine. I tried doing all the research I could on this plant, and have since decided to wait it out until my conditions are better suited to it. I agree, it is one of the most stunning nepenthes, and from what I gather, given the correct conditions, this plant will do well. Now I'm just waiting it out until I can get a place of my own.

    CPN issue June 2003 has an EXCELLENT guide as to N. northiana's requirements. You can do an index search on the ICPS website under Dr. Jeff Shaffer, it should pull up 2 fantastic articles; one on villosa and one on northiana.


    Here's a quicker link

    Ah sorry for responding to your question there Dex, I find that northiana doesn't like too much light. I used to have mine within about 4~5" from my T5HO lights and it was growing extremely slowly. When I moved it down about 9~10" it really started growing like it was on a mission.
