    Oh, and Grascilis?
    Leon from borneo exotics probably knows more than them, he supplies Ca Carnivores, cook's and a whole lot more.

    N. jacquelineae and N. macrophylla grow alongside each other quite happily in our highland nursery, 25 deg. C max day and 12 deg. C min night. Hamish's advice regarding keeping humidity high is good. Plants can adapt somewhat to lower humidities given time but fluctuaions in conditions are never good.

    As pointed out, N. platycila comes from a somewhat lower altitude and *may* grow as an intermediate species, not needing quite such a low temperature at night. However, this species is new to cultivation and no-one has all the answers yet. We grow it in the same nursery as N. jacquelineae and N. macrophylla and haven't tried it in warmer conditions yet but we are dealing with the same tiny but robust seedlings that pretty much everyone else is growing. You can try Jeff Schafer's excellent website at http://www.plantswithattitude.com/ since Jeff is usually at the forefront with growing tips on newly introduced species.

    Best of luck!

    HAHA Like your username Leon. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    N. macrophylla would not be what I consider the fastest of the bunch. It's one of those species that I feel moves slow but can make great strides with each leaf provided conditions are excellent. It doesn't appear to be quite as demanding of cold temperatures as it's natural altitude range would seem to indicate, but I do agree that steady high humidity is a must. Also seems to prefer an open mix with alot of sphagnum moss.
    N. jacquelineae is a speed demon for me and new leaves and pitchers at a steady fast pace. Going from a 3/4" plant to over 7" in 18 months is no slouch. Seems happy with warm days and reasonably cool nights. Again steady high humidity as the leaves are long thin and the tendrils are even longer.
    N. platychila .. haven't grown them long enough but so far seem quite content with my intermediate/highland setup.
