    No I don't think 90 is fine. Once in a blue moon for a short while they will handle 90 but day after day I don't think would be advisable.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Where I live we do have a few days in a row of 90-100F weather but at night it goes down into the low 60s and mid 50s. I also spray my plant down with cool water in the afternoon which seems to help. One more thing, usually by the time it gets into the 90s-100s my plants are in the shade...

    being specific for an N. Tiveyi, 90 degree's during the day and 60-50 at night is good?, oh and also if since during the day you make it really hot and at night u must make it cold, what if you dont make it very hot during the day, you keep it around 60 or so, would you still need to make it cold?

    Cold during the day occasionally won't be a problem but if it is like that for days on end for a long period the plants will suffer. If it is not warm enough during the day the plants won't grow.

    from what i know its around 85 degrees during the day and around 50 at night. Thats for the "not so high neps" i know n. villosa should get daytime temps of no more than 75 (or 80) and nightime temps of 39. correct me if im wrong

    N. villosa is deffinately on the extreame edge.

    The range of 50-55 night and 80-85 day Amateur Expert would be fine for most highland, many intermediate and even a few of the tolerant lowland plants.
