    Yeah sorry, its a shame that it is so hard to grow. I went by Ryan's greenhouse on Friday and he had managed to get some campanulata to do well. He was keeping the soil very dry and with high humidity.
    Its best to just go for campy hybrids before trying it. Maybe try grow easier Nepenthes species that like similar conditions to campanulata.

    Wait, is the only bad part keeping the soil dry while the air remains warm and humid?
    Come to me flies and crawling bugs. This plant wants to give you great big hugs
    Aren't I pretty, don't I smell good? I'd come to you if I could
    But I can't so you must come to me, I'm sure we will get along splendidly

    No, its still very picky and particular with what it wants. I wouldnt suggest it as a beginner plant.

    Mine was miserable until I started growing it as a highlander. Go figure.

    This is not surprising, given its native conditions.

    Also, PsychoSarah, there appear to be some campys that have some coloration (see link), but I don't believe that they're in widespread cultivation.

    Limestone? Well, that shouldn't be hard to get.

    Ha! Well, I thought so, too, but I live in the Granite State.... If anyone can find a small bit of limestone that they'd be willing to mail me, I'd be happy to pay for it and postage. Apparently, it's not available at any of the stone cutting places here.
