    That is quite the beast...

    Do you have a warmer part of the house? Ultimately you will probably want to grow it separately from the rest of your plants.

    Yeah, that's just a teazer of the size it will reach if cared for correctly. Give it a year and watch what happens.

    Not an official warmer part of the greenhouse, but I have all of my nepenthes growing about half way back from the door. They're in direct line of the heater/cooler. Will the 50F night temperatures stunt its growth (if it isn't adaptable to HL conditions) if the day temperature are in the mid eighties or close to nineties? I'm hoping that since the guy said it was a highland intermediate that it would adapt to that. I believe that is what he was growing it as, as most of his collection was highland to my knowledge. Every plant I recognized by name that he had was a highlander.

    Yeah I was asking if you had a warmer part of your house. Generally the houses we live in aren't suitable for Highland Nepenthes, but would do just fine for lowlanders if you mist them often or erect some sort of humidity dome.

    Just a thought!

    It may very well do just fine in intermediate or highland conditions, who knows. I am unfamiliar with this cross and both its parents.

    Sorry, I misread!

    I'm actually clearing out a closet and it should be empty within the next few months. I'm thinking of using my 29g aquarium currently in use for housing my highlanders (moving them out to the greenhouse slowly) as a lowland terrarium in the closet. I'll just need to come up with some ways to heat it up during the day. It will stay around 65F at night, as it is staying there now with my highlanders.

    I did some looking around and found a vendor carrying that exact cross, so I assume that is where the hobbyist I bought it from got his mother plant from. I sent the vendor a message on another forum regarding the adaptability of this hybrid to highland conditions, so I'll let you all know what is said when I get a reply.

    The vendor I asked said that they had never tried growing the cross in highland conditions, but they thought it wouldn't be adaptable. Who knows. It looks like the new leaf it is putting out is growing, so that's a good sign.
