    i really want to try my luck at highlands. i have a corner that stays cooler that i THINK may work. the temps in my house really take a fall at night. a few species have caught my eye and i guess im wondering about just how tolerant they may be. they are in no particular order:

    Nepenthes ramispina
    Nepenthes maxima
    Nepenthes gymnamphora
    Nepenthes densiflora
    Nepenthes bongso

    any others other than the standard ventricosa that may be a bit more adaptible?

    hello

    All the plants you listed except N. densiflora I grow in my greenhouse where it get to about 95F in the day and 55F at night with about 80% humidity and they seem to love it.

    thanks

    N. Sanguinea is a great plant, very adaptable. So is N. alata and N. khasiana.

    You may also want to look into some hybrid...
    ventricosa x khasiana (sometimes called x 'Emmarenne') is great
    ventricosa x truncata
    x 'Judith Finn'
    x 'Ventrata'

    i actually have a ventrata thats growing like a weed alongside my Rokko and ampullaria and such in my lowland setup. it seems to love it and has doubled in size in about 3 or 4 months. i really want to try the bongso. i hope to have some khasiana x Miranda seeds in another month or two if everything goes alright. thanks for the input.

    I grow all of those except gymnamphora outside here. They all seem to do well, (although I have only had bongso and densiflora for 1 week:-) I second Sanguinea and add tobaica, fusca, carunculata, spathulata. Veitchii seems to like more humidity as it is not pitchering well for me. In the winter they slow down with 70 F days and 40 F nights. They seem to like the 80-90 F days and 65 F nights of summer much better.

    edit: I just moved a truncata out there and hybrids with maxima do very, very well too.
    A day without Nepenthes is like a day without sunshine

    I've seen N.gymnamphora, N. maxima, and N.ramispina growing in a very hot lowlang greenhouse with 70 degree night temps wit hno ill effects. The N.ramispinas where a bit on the small side, however. The Gymmnaphora was fine but a bit slow in comparison to the lowland species.

    Hi Steve,

    How much sunlight(hours, intensity, morning, afternoon) are you giving the outdoors Nepenthes? Also, which "easy" species of Nepenthes are you growing outdoors and how well are they pitchering? I live close to the San Gabriel Valley area and the climate you described is like the climate in my area.
