    lowland as far as I know, though there are many clones which may very well vary in requirements. I have always seen lowland though. I would wait for a response from one of the more knowledgables. I do not have N. clipeata.

    Wow I was way off. Don't listen to me. Thats why I said wait for the "knowledgables". Good thing I'm not growing it, I would have killed it the first night

    Just because Peter said it doesnt mean it's true... there are alot of errors in that book... I'll bring up the post about it.

    EDIT: Wait a second... my version says its a lowlander!

    The botanical monograph series Flora Malesiana's Volume 15: Nepenthaceae by Jebb & Cheek states that N. clipeata grows between "600-800 meters above sea level".

    This places it in lowland conditions, however, it is the upper range of lowland (lowland is 0-1000 meters) and growing only on one exposed cliffside. This cliff is exposed and would likely often be around 100*F during the day and dropping to much cooler (but likely not highland cold) at night because of the same exposed conditions (cool night winds).

    I grow my N. clipeata in my hot sweaty lowland conditions (85-95* Days/70-75*F nights) and it's doing just fine. When it outgrows this space it will go into a more intermediate chamber.
