    Sorry, i just had to say that. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Anyway, 60 degrees is not cold, at least for highlanders. Lowlanders yes. Highlanders would do great out there, at least in winter.

    Go ahead, put that khasiana outside, same with the sanguinea, they'll survive the 'bitter cold'. Khasiana can even survive a frost or two, it's a real trooper.

    I know, but it would break my little Germanic heart; it would cry out "Vy haff zem stand in ze cold and produce no pitchers, venn vee can haff zem pitcher like prized cows inside? It vould not be EFFICIENT! Vee vant no LAZY-BUM PLANTZ around us!"

    Very nice pics. Taiwan is a good place for neps and orchids if you have them. I've always dreamed of moving to the top of one of the mountains because they seem like they would be a highland nep's paradise, with temperatures to the low fifties at night, maximum temps of eighty degrees during the day, and constant high humidity.
    Paradise found is paradise lost.

    Thanks for the compliments, Stan!

    You've been here before? Some of Taiwan's mountains - at least those above 10K feet, of which there are at least 250(*) - might be a bit cold in winter. There's snow above 11000 feet in January....

    But I guess you couldn't go too wrong with moving a little up the hill, say, 3000-5000 feet, especially in the South, which is already below the Tropic of Cancer.

    In fact, we're thinking of moving out of our lowland apartment a bit up the hill (1000 ft) into this litte old farmhouse right at the edge of the jungle (see links below). It's only accessible from the main road by bike, quadruped or on foot, and it needs a bit of sprucing up, but fortunately, my wife is quite the handywoman...
    The upsides are obvious: the view, the geckos, rat snakes and cobras, the bat-sized butter- and dragonflies, the saucer-sized neon spiders, clean air, mountain spring water, tons of space for my plants, and our two boys are crazy about living right next to a subtropical forest.

    Khasiana should still pitcher outside. Same with sanguinea, as long as that bitter cold is as cold as it gets. Even if it gets in to the mid forties those two should still pitcher.

    Hmmm...I knew those two were tough, but mid-forties?
    I definitely gotta try that next winter - thanks for the info, n. master!

    Hey Hanz,
    I guess the question is, with regards to the khasiana and the sanguinea (which are technically highlanders), how cold does it get at night?

    If you have high 60's daytime and even into the 40's nightime, you'll be fine with those two outside. I grew mine on the deck railing from spring through fall, with just those conditions at both ends of the season, and they grew and pitchered just fine.
