    That is beyond a bump question. That is a read basic Nepenthes training 101 question. But to answer your question - No you can't.

    It all depends on the species, some are not true highlanders and can tolerate some warm nights, but most true lowlanders demand warm nights.

    Thus that is what distinguishes Lowlanders from Highlanders. Lowlanders need warmer nights (65-75 degrees) and highlanders need cooler nights (45-60 degrees). Of course each species is different and depending on where they are found naturally, it will vary.

    But they cannot be grown together for the most part.

    Unless they have been hybridized with one another, in which case it *may* be possible to grow a plant that has highlander genes in a lowland environment or vice versa, but expect any hybrids to require similar conditions as their mother parent.

    I have no clue either.. guess I am not hip to the lingo anymore ;<

    To go one further in answering your question Rockhopper. It is not simply a matter of the night temperature. Without getting into specifics of exactly what plants you would try to grow or the actual temperature ranges, it is true that too warm at night would be detrimental in the long run. It is also true that too warm during the day can be detrimental for highland plants as well.

    Just as another general note from my experience. I find that N. veitchii, even the 'highland' forms are really not all that highland and like to be on the warm side of highland or the cool side of lowland. I also find that many of the Philippine 'highland' plants that have been in cultivation for a while (ie ventricosa, highland truncata, sibuyanensis etc) do better warmer than typical highland plants.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Bump = Bring up my post... A way to get an old thread to the first page, so slightly out of context

    Anyway; HL plants in LL conditions is a bad idea.

    highlands in lowland conditions usually doesnt work with the exception of some species like Tony mentioned that arent terribly picky.....however some lowlands can do fine in highland temps....ive got merrilliana growing alongside macrophylla and both are happy....

    yeah..but its not an old tread..its a new thread..
    you can "bump" an old thread, just to bring it to the top..
    but that doesnt explain what a "bump question" is, in relation to a brand-new question in a brand new post..so we still dont know what it means!

    but apparently rockhopper and Dexy do know what it means..
    guys?
