    N. truncata should adjust quite quickly to your humidity if it is 60-70 percent as you claim. N. truncata has thick leaves and stems and does not require as thick a humidity as you might think. It is not like thinner leafed varieties such as mirabilis that enjoy higher humidity. Good luck.

    I agree with Kim. Your humidity is high enough, and with warmth, truncata should grow just fine. I'm going to have one on my windowsill by Friday. I'll tell all of you how it goes.

    OK everyone, I think I'll give it a go and if I am not satisfied with it's growth rate,pitcher productivity,etc. I can ALWAYS put it in the greenhouse. OK so what should I do now? Open the bag a little now? Also should i mist it or direct the Ultrasonic humidifier at it as I always have that running. Even in the summer. Thanks! And according to the weather panel by my grow area it is reading in at 65% and the house humidity is 62% so not much or a huge difference. So it should do well with that humidity, well I see why as Truncata is know to do well with lower humidity. OK after that paragraph has been answered.

    I've heard( from websites and the Savage Garden) that maxima does great on windowsills. Though, all nepenthes will grow "FASTER" in optimum conditions. Its just that some do better in less favorable conditions than others. Where are you going to get a maxima from?
