Thought I would share with you a photo of a relatively new
species which I have been growing for some time. This one
is quite remarkable, and the attached photo does not do it
justice. The pitcher shown is not quite as fully developed
as future ones will be; the peristome should become about
twice as wide as seen here. Still, a very lovely species,
at least in my humble opinion!
N. platychila is an intermediate grower, I believe, and has done
quite well in my highland environment. Most folks who can
grow N. lowii, or N. glabrata should have no trouble with it,
and it may tolerate warm nocturnal temperatures even better
than I am guessing. I don't know for certain, for I've no desire
to test its limits!
