    The folks who run Exotica are quite knowledgeable, and grow
    excellent plants. However, I must disagree with them here.
    Given that they live in Queensland, which is rather tropical,
    perhaps their definition of intermediate conditions differs from
    the commonly held notion....

    In any case, N. northiana is, to the best of my knowledge,
    not found at elevations greater than about 500 m, and
    therefore quite easily meets the definition of a lowland
    Nepenthes. Moreover, my personal experience suggests
    that this plant does not do well with cool conditions; in fact,
    it seems that poor growth or leaf damage due to overly
    intense illumination is the most common problem encountered
    by those cultivating it.

    Hi Jeff,

    which form of N. northiana do you grow? As far as I remember a discussion with a friend he mentioned there are two different groups of N. northiana. One group grows on the limestone hills shown in Steiner's book and another group grows in the forest with lower light levels.

    Sorry can't add experience growing this species.

    Hi Jess, I've had it for a bit longer than you I think. It DOES pitcher for me, but not like I would prefer it would do for me. Mainly pitchers during the spring and summer, at its peak I would say around late fall.

    Hi Joachim,

    Unfortunately, I do not have location data for my specimens.
    Wish that I did!
