Or, what I like to respond when people ask, "How was your vacation?"
These plants were kept in my highland terrarium for 2 weeks while I was away. Everything is automated except for watering - which I took care of before leaving - and nighttime cooling, which I do using ice packs. The night...

I am starting this thread to be able to hear about stories of people who are growing highland nepenthes in "inadequate" conditions such as high temperatures, low humidity, etc. I am looking to acquire a nepenthes villosa and the following to threads were the ones that inspired this thread:
Hi yall, ive been growing cp's for a few years here and there, and since I'm somewhat settled in my current place, I thought I'd set up a more permanent grow shelf. I dragged a free-standing wooden shelf from the backyard to my bedroom's south-facing window, put a few trays of live sphagnum and...
I will trade rooted cephalotus cuttings, acclimated TC Nepenthes ampullaria x rafflesiana seedlings, or heliamphora heterodoxa seedlings for any of the following:
Drosophyllum - offer received
N. Ampullaria - offer received
N. Glabrata - offer...

I have a few Venus fly traps that have just split or about to split off and ones that have split and been growing for some time that i have available to trade, sizes vary according to what type of vft they're coming from and how long they been growing as their own rooted plant in the pot.
I'm looking to buy N. glabrata. If you have confirmed small seedlings of glabrata I would even be interested in purchasing multiple plants. As in my other LTB threads willing to pay a premium for nice heathy plants.
Thank you and kind regards,
Here is my puny growlist. Enjoy!

It was sunny today so I figured I should take some of the plants out for photos.
N. maxima 'Wavy Leaf':
The horizontal pitcher at 6:00 was one of the originals that came with the plant when I got it 5 months ago, as was the now-dead one at 3:00. Quite long-lived pitchers.
Just a few shots from my modest collection. Sorry for the poor photo quality, my photography skills are not what someone would describe as "up to par".
D. scorpioides gemmae sprouting - many thanks, jonnyq!
N. ventricosa looking quite robust.
N. ventricosa - different clone
I recently got these plants as Drosera tomentosa var. glabrata. While I realize that they are still small, something doesn't look right to me. The lamina seem to be the wrong length and shape for D.tomentosa. Color also seems quite a bit off to me. The largest one is just starting to put up a...
Figured I might as well put up a photo thread of my humble collection since I'm taking pictures anyway for records.
Let's start with N. rafflesiana x ampullaria.
The supplier said that despite its heritage it was growing well with the other highlanders. I don't doubt them given the altitude...
