    Hi
    I see that on Exotica Plants web site that the N. northiana is described as being an intermediate. Is this likely? My current small plant yet to pitcher is in my lowland tank.
    Having seen Jeffs plant doing so well in lower humidity and them reading this, I think I will give my plant a try in my highland house once spring finally arrives.

    cheers

    I do know this, they don't like high light levels and the fact that they grow in limestone is mis-leading to indoor culture people. Mine was fine in lowland until it stayed wet tooo long.

    A little off topic: Is there a highland N. northiana?

    Mine northiana's leaves deform if it gets low humidity. Right now its experiencing about 88F in the day and about 82-83 at night with very high humidity. I would say its a true lowlander....

    No such thing as a highland form of N. northiana Joe.....unless you wanted one of the pretty hybrid with northiana in it! lol. Mine seems happy in the lowland chamber, but it hasn't pitchered for me...I think the light levels are waaay to high for it, but oh well, its alive, I can't please every plant now!

    how long have you had it? mine is just now pitchering and I've had it for almost a year. I think it took it that long to get acclimated to the intense light (400w MH).
