I see...makes sense. You can probably grow some cool highlanders. How do lowlanders do for you overall? The winters might get too for them. In Miami I can't grow many highlanders. I know this is all old news, but I'm trying to get a feel for how people grow their Neps in different climates.

Yes, I have several forms but I am doing an experiment with a hypothesis that anything crossed with N. thorelii can take full blistering sun. Needless to say during our heat wave that many plants have dried pitchers with some burning of the leaves. But hope is on the way. Newer leaves are leathery, succulent and firm withstanding the scorching rays and UV heat rays. In a couple of (make that one month) months, I should have some pitchers to post. Other N. thorelii hybrids also in this experiment include N. Rokko Exotica, N. thorelii x (ventri x densi), (Tiveyi x Mixta) x thorelii, thorelii x sibuyanensis, thorelii x bicalcarata, and so on.

I agree that thorelii can take sun but also lower temperatures than expected. I've grown my varieties from EP, Wistuba, Trent and Michelle's purple d, and EP hybrids as highlanders yearround outdoors with little problems. They do suffer in December and January if the temps get into the upper 30's which is rare. They seem to be able to go into the lower 40's without dying only to rebound in spring with new growth.
I think those EP hybrids with thorelii might be the most versatile Neps available. They're vigorous, hardy, and seem to adapt from lowland to highland conditions. They really are brutes!

A current plant of northiana x veitchii as grown in very hot full sun!
See the hot spots all over these leathery leaves. The newer growth seem to be enduring this very well.

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.
