    Yes, our nights are not lower than 23C and the albomarginatas always grow well. Pitchers last long, too.

    Have you tried a diet of termites instead of koi pellets, meal worms and or crickets?

    Termites have a very high protein source.

    The albos here even in my warm climate seems to be doing nothing special any way.

    maybe its too warm for them now!

    Some forms of albomarginata are known not to tolerate very warm conditions, in particular the green varieties. Jeff Shafer notes this on his website, and I've found the same thing with my varieties - my spotte variety will suffer from both cold and hot weather more than my var rubra. Intermediate conditions are often best for this species.

    My albos including the green spotted (Kuching?) and the red Penang form grow without problems in our daily heat (Manila!) - the green one performing even better. Both forms are not shy to pitcher at all, even with our low humidity and high winds. While growing speed is very good, the size increase per leaf/pitcher could be better compared to other species.
    They are catching termites themselves, once the pitcher opens. It all happens very fast [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]
