    Neps of Sumatra says lowland but I know one member of this site grows (or has grown in the past) N. eustachya as a highlander. I grow mine (red & white form) as an extreme lowlander (85-95*F days, 70-75*F nights). It grows and pitchers well but has very short pitcher lifespan of only a couple months, the leaves last a very long time. I think it would do very well as an intermediate and have longer pitcher lifespan.

    I have not seen one grown in a dim environment (mine grows 8-10" below 240 watts of flourescents) but the leaves of my N. eustachya exudes a huge amount of wax (like plant sunblock). So much wax that you can scrape it off under a fingernail and sometimes so much it collects and makes wax globules here and there on the leaves!

    A neat easy plant! Have fun!

    According to "nepenthes university" this plant can take realatively low humidity (for a nep, that is). So I have elected to try growing it outside of the lowland chamber on my plant shelf. I think I may need to find a way to give it more light, though, as it's only under two tubes. I guess I could just put it closer to the lights...

    They could probably take cool conditions for a bit but long term they are deffinately not a highland plant! I agree also that it would make a good candidate for windowsill plant in areas that have at least moderate humidity.

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