The growing condition is in intermediate condition(15-28 C),highland condition will be the best I think. The cooler temperatures will make the color of the pitchers are more darker.Very bright sunlight are ok. Please see Suska's trip to Mt.Slamet and Mt.Salak in Nepenthes in wild to compare with the original condition in the habitat.

I made some crosses, but it seems they don't produce seeds well in my growing condition. only few small seed and very low viability. The fruit size is only about 1/4 - 1/2 size of normal fruit in highland condition (even my N. spathulata fruits is much bigger). The pollen parrents also don't produce pollen well (very few pollen powder). But they flowering all the time.
I'll put them at my friend's place at the highland. I think they will be perfect! (see cepherum post of N. adrianii fruits)
some crosses I made, with very low succes rate : N. adrianii x gracillis or N. gracilis x adrianii = only four seedling alive. (the only seddlings of N. adrianii cross I have) N. adrianii x maxima = no seedling N. adrianii x clipeata = no seedling N. adrianii x judith finn = no seedling N. adrianii x rafflesiana = no seedling N. adrianii x thorellii = no seedling N. adrianii x viking = no seedling N. adrianii x spectabilis = just pollinated N. adrianii x khasiana = just pollinated N. adrianii x mirabilis = no seedling
N. viking x adrianii (ripe soon), N. mirabilis x adrianii, and some more.
I also made N. adrianii x N. adrianii cross, sown invitro (also small seeds and les than 10% viability, only some couple dozen germinated )

plantguyty1: Does anybody need pollen? I have N. Miranda it's the first time it flowered for me so I do not know if its sterile or a good candidate. Is there anybody with an active female that would like to give my pollen a shot?

thatoneplantboi: Hey guys, I'm new to growing nepenthes, I'm getting a mini indoor greenhouse to grow them in. What kind of light should I use for them? Also, if you could provide a link to a product, it would be very much appreciated

borneo: Yes, they work superbly. But you don't need expensive lights, cheap ones work well too.
