    How recent is recently? It can take a new plant months in some cases to settle in and make pitchers. N. sibuyanensis is a sporadic pitcher producer even in the greenhouse. The tendrils get very long and like to twine around and bury themselves in surrounding pots or hang waaaaayyyy down under the benches. They take a long time to reach the point where a pitcher developes. So it is deffinately one of the species that needs a fair bit of time to settle in.

    And when you say tray system do you mean it is sitting in water all the time like other Cps?

    Final questions.. How does the new growth look? Are the tendrils continuing to elongate?
    Which way does the window face? Is the plant getting any artificial light?
    Define natural high humidity..

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

    I brought one 6 month ago with other varieties of Nep. It still by far the slowest growing I got. It does not like temperature above 35 C (Mine got burnt first time it hit 35C) It start to recover now with autumn.

    N. sibuyanensis is not that hard to cultivate. Seems to be pretty much typical highlander so far and can tolerate temps up to 100F (37C) (highest my greenhouse has been this year) and it was fine as was N. villosa, hamata, etc, but I have a misting system and very good airflow. So those are contributing factors as to keep humidity and evaporation rates high. Also it is in 60% shade, temps are much cooler under it than the opposite end of the greenhouse where there is no shadecloth.

    My .02 cents

    yeah i have only just started putting em on the window sill
    out side the window is where i grow my neps & i have shade cloth up
    it rarley gets about 40oC here in summer
    and around 20oC here in winter
    summer nights are warm can be cool & humid if it is raining
    winter nights occasionly can get down to -o- becouse i live on a big pleateau
