    Hi there,

    what are the cultivation conditions of this new species? Following the photos of Wistuba the plant lives in mossy areas with shade and high humidity. Does anyone of you have experience with this plant?

    Cheers,
    Max

    That is really cool, thanks. Sometimes I don't take the time to got to those pages, and it's nice to see a highlight.
    I think you really get a good look at the evolutionary benefit of long tendrils here. Having them reach the ground is less stressful on the stem and also allows better access to ground prey.

    Cheers,

    This plant looks a lot like N. paniculata to me, but we won't know until Andreas publishes his description. Looking at where it comes from and it seems to be related to inermis and jacquelineae, it should grow in similar conditions. Most of those Sumatran highland species grow in similar conditions.

    Your're right SydneyNeps.
    So the day temperature should be 24-26C and night temperature 13-16C with high humidity.
