    As long as the humidity and air movement are good, temps around 95 during the day and 75- 80 at night wouldn't even bother it in the slightest.

    What temps are you hitting day/night

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Bicals? I have had mine up to 97 in the growchamber with no ill effects. I wouldn't let it get hotter than 100 though. and colder than 50. Highland would do best with 70-90 day and 60-50 at night.

    Humidity should be higher, Bical loves extremly high humidity. I would say 75% at a minimum! I have mine at 85% and high at all times. Temperature sounds fine but raise your humidity. Bical will not pitcher without sufficent humidity. It may grow, but probably will not pitcher well.
