    N. truncata like Eric stated, can take basically any temperature, from scorching hot to chilling cold, it weathers the storm. Only difference between N. truncata HL and the LL form is coloration and size.

    so if I bought an N. truncata highland and put it in my scortching greenhouse (which it is) would it survive?

    According to Da Man (aka Rob Cantley), highland truncata will survive but not do much at all in a lowland greenhouse. Conversely, my lowland truncata copes with a Sydney winter in an unheated greenhouse, but the growth is glacial and the pitchers reduce greatly in size. Highland truncata seems to cope well with hot days and moderately warm nights OK, and grows the fastest of the two varieties IMO.

    Kirk, if you READ once in a while, you would know I was talking about the lowland form of N. truncata able to withstand a variety of conditions.
