    So campanulata doesn't like the heat?? Thought they were LL plants.

    Your camps are looking nice

    Campanulata is most definitely a lowland plant. My guess is that the "heat tolerance" that hardy is experiencing is more an effect of hybrid vigor.

    by definition yes, campanulata is a LL, if LL refers to altitude constraints. however, campanulata does grow on cliff walls to nearby waterfalls, which does help lower the ambient temperature significantly.

    Can we see some robc x campy? I'm curious as to how others are turning out, I'll post pictures of mine when the next pitcher pops.

    Um, yes, campanulata is definitely lowland. In winter, it does get chilling injury if grown outdoors even in subtropical Taiwan. The minimum sea-level winter temp here is about 10 degrees C (50 degrees F), and exposure to such cold will damage the plant, as documented by a fellow grower here: (in Chinese)
    http://cp-toxin.blogspot.tw/2008/01/blog-post.html


    But despite its being a lowland, it hates extreme heat, which has also been documented:
    http://carnivorousockhom.blogspot.tw...mpanulata.html
    http://carnivorousockhom.blogspot.tw...ta-update.html

    I've observed this aversion to heat with my plant, which is negatively affected somewhat during the hottest months (30-35 degrees C during the day). The leaves and pitchers get smaller, and there's also a tendency for malformed leaves and pitchers. My reddish camp produces the largest pitchers at about 20 degrees C. At that temperature, the colors are most intense as well, while most of the color is gone in the hottest months.

    Grown "cool" (average temp 20 degrees C -- 68 degrees F)


    Grown hot (average temp 30 degrees C -- 86 degrees F)


    So yeah campanulata doesn't like it that hot. By comparison, N. lowii X campanulata seems to be completely unfazed by the heat. It's been growing and pitchering steadily since I got it in May right to August, which also happens to be the hottest months in Taiwan.

    Your wish is my command Drew!

    Also here are shots of all my other campy hybrids that are currently pitchering. I've got two pure campy one AW and one BE clone, but both are tiny and not worth photographing. I've also got a N "thorelii" x campy but that has not pitchered yet in my care.

    Here we go!
