    Iíve also heard that hamata isnít extremely picky about low night temps. I mean they definitely need it...but down to 50? I donít think thatís needed. Iíd try to keep them at your low of 60 if possible and I agree Sumner temps need to come down. But I donít think itíll suffer. I keep mine on the warmer side of my tent so it stays about 55-57 at night...instead of 48-52 (didnít seem to especially like 48 degree nights).

    Maybe I should clarify. They definitely need a night drop but I donít think 60ish is too warm.

    Not sure if it'll help in any way but at night I've been leaving them in the direct stream of the humidifier(cool mist)

    Dropping to 50 F is too low for most standard highland Nepenthes; upper 50's is the necessary range for most, low 60's tolerable but better for intermediates. only ultra-highlanders like really cold conditions regularly.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    +1 to the above.

    Unless you're talking villosa or lamii, I'd say 57-60 would be a good target for night temperature for most HL Nepenthes.


    Glad to see you're happy with it
    Good Growing!

    I do have ultras. Although Iíd like my night temps 52-57...sometimes they are a bit lower. Someone mentioned earlier in the post about getting temps to 50 and I was just saying I donít think thatís needed with the plants listed and they may even not like temps that low.
