    Oh, okay, interesting. I know if I were in that situation, I would give it to someone who could care for it ASAP, rather than letting it die! An honorable move! So, do you know what temps it likes exactly? Like 60s to high 70s, for example? And have you been told/ do you feel its picky about humidity? Sorry for all the Q's, I'd just love to know as much about this species from someone who had one/ talked to others who know about them

    Thanks for the reply and your time BTW!

    Wow. Sounds like a heck of a windowsill plant to me, in a home with high humidty or some type of humitity tray under it! God bless who ever tries that though. I know I'd love to but I'd be quite scared to
    We are putting an addition on our house and I am waiting for my "nepenthes room" to be finished! Can't wait! Up till now all my plants have been windowsill-ed haha. Maybe if I can get my hands on one of these once my nep room is finished, I'd could try it
    Such a magnificent plant!
    I guess I could always trade it if it starts to pout.

    Alright, thanks again.

    Wow, do ANY of these rare, expensive plants ever stay in your collection for more than a few months

    Personally if I was going to buy a $200+ plant I think I'd do a little research on there cultural requirements before I bought one.

    Although, in Lucas defense I always assumed attenboroughii was a HL/UHL plant too
    Good Growing!

    You got a good deal in that trade; I would have done the same thing.

    My point exactly. Don't acquire plants you aren't certain you can grow, especially extremely rare/valuable plants.
