    can't say for certain since i never let mine get that cold but it would definitely suffer i would imagine if it didn't die right away. i am waiting on a new pitcher to inflate but I have a N.baramensis and that thing is a genetic freak compared to the rest of my nepenthes.

    Unfortunately, I don't think they'll do very well Pine. I would give it down to 60-65, but even that would be the very bottom of its range. Maybe a windowsill inside would be better than your greenhouse. They don't need a ton of humidity.

    Nor do they need a ton of light. N. raft is probably one of the easiest species to grow. They can survive brief spells close to freezing, but I don't recommend trying it regularly. It'll definitely grow at regular home temperatures.
