    JB,

    Temps 85 plus are probably going to be problematic for these species.

    N. burbidgeae is tough to grow as it is larger and slows down significantly. This species may be the most tolerant of warm conditions out of the three mentioned. I cant speak much about the upper warmth tolerance of these species cause I have not tried to push the envelope; but I am growing all three in the same conditions 68-75 ish days and 48-55 nights at 70% plus humidity with close to 100% humidity at night 365 days a year. All pitcher and grow reasonable fast. I have jamban seedlings growing in warmer conditions but will soon move to above mentioned conditions.

    If you have any specific questions let me know.

    burbidgeae grows quickly for me with 77F days and 65F nights.....it hates temps below 60F in my expereience, and temps over 85F caused it stress.

    N.jacq is a fickle mistress, it likes temps in the mid 70's during the day, and mid 50's at night, however, it will still grow (although slowly) with night temps of 65F and day temps of 77F. Temps over 80F make it VERY VERY angry.

    Can't comment on jamban, as I don't have one yet.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Thanks guys for the info. I was just looking through pics and thought they would be nice to own one day. I guess these will have to wait toll I get a cool growing setup. Here in SC I can't give the temp drop. Inside I can keep the max temp 75-73 but no drop on temp. Not yet. I have plans for a cool growing vivarium.

    Thanks again for the info. I like to ask growers who grow the plants cause I grow vent outside here and it tolerates the temps fine. Just curious if these did too.

    I have all three and they're all growing steadily for me in highland conditions. This time of the year high temps can range from mid-70's to low 90's. Night time temps range from low 50's to mid-60's. I don't think any of these will appreciate warm night. You'd probably want to get down into the 60's...at least.

    Oh, actually maybe ask Crissytal? I think she's in NC and even keeps Heliamphora, so she must know how to do it right..

    Well I know what "should" be done. Problem is ATM I keep my plants outside. No controlled growing area ATM. I was just trying to judge if they would survive till ideal conditions were to become reality or perish waiting. Some highlanders like sang, vent, even 'jungle bells' with sib in it do ok for me when I water correctly. I was even doing well with red dragon till I dried it out. Once I get funds and my other pressing projects completed, maybe I can build my cool growing terrarium and then order or trade for these guys. Just have to have wifey approve the appearance of terrarium in the house lol. Has to look good. And got to keep momma happy.

    Well, the following might be considered blasphemous in some circles, but... I can at least speak on the part of N. Burbidgeae, if you can keep it somewhere where the temps float in the mid/low 70's, you shouldn't have a problem. I honestly don't think the whole "night time temperature drop" is all it's cracked up to be. The temp in your house naturally drops at night anyways when the sun goes down.

    For example... ever drive in your car on a freezing day in the middle of winter, but the sun is out and you're burning up in your car without having the heater on? Just being in the sun/under light will create heat. Therefore, turning your growlights off/the sun no longer shining through your window naturally makes the temperature drop, regardless of what your thermostat is reading. Why go through all the hassle to trying an manually drop the temp, when it happens naturally throughout the day, even in a climate controlled environment. I don't know if I would keep this plant outside where you live though, I think it would definitely overheat.

    Oh, and I see no need for you to get a terrarium. I've grown mine on a simple growrack for a couple of years, and it is getting larger and developing pitchers regularly.

    Wow. Might try one one day. I don't have room for a grow rack but could find a place for a grow chamber. Wife won't like a set of racks either. But if a nice looking terrarium and might be able to rearrange for it. Got to work it right. Might take a chance one day. Have to see how it plays out. Thankyou for all the info!! Great info.
