I have their hybrids ; Thorelli x xTrusmadiensis and Truncata x Aristolochioides. They do very well here in Thailand!!!
Hi and welcome to the bestest forum in the whole wide world! What a coincidence, I just bought a small thorelli x trusmardiensis today. Do you have a picture (also of the trunc x aristo)?
cheers and keep on postin'
Hans PS and OT: Today I also bought my third hookeriana and was given a big, fat (albeit momentarily pitcherless) dyeriana. And I visited a fellow who's been growing Nepenthes on his roof for ten years, said roof now being so densely overgrown with vines that the plants have created their own "shade netting". Wild schtuff! Pictures on Monday, when I don't have to post from my wife's computer anymore (I flash-fried my mobo when I inserted a memory module the wrong way....)
Thanks twoton. :-) I do have pictures of both thorelii x xtrusmadiensis and truncata x aristolochioides. But I do not know how to post them!?! It seems that I have to upload my pictures to some server first,right??
Matti.. You seem know how we can grow aristolochioides in real tropical condition?? ha ha Tell me some hints please. :-D
quite simple N.aristolochioides is just another highland nepenthes exept comming from 2500M you would expect it would like cold temps and high humidity just get an old fridge like out of the trading post or wat ever you can pick up. make shure its working then drill a hole in the side and stick a light and a fogger inside then stick their wires through the side of the fridge then re-wire them up if u have cut them of to poke them through (it's not that hard i did it and im still alive.)then silicon the hole up. then get some timers make shure it works propley and dosnt go down to -10 like myn did the first time a timer or thermostat would help timers alot less tricky. any more help need'd just ask me or refer to s4.invisionfree.com/CCPS/index.php?showtopic=391 i built got my moms old fridge then she baught me a fogger and a light and i was set.
ohhh btw:aristolochioides is one of the smallest plants in the genus as far as trimming it goes u wont need to they usually flower at around one meter height and in good growing condiitons they can reach that height in 6 months

Hmm, I'm posting this again cause I didn't see it posted. Hope it doesn't repeat itself.
Any way, I was saying that many highlanders can grow quite well in lowland conditions and I have even read somewhere that hybrids of highland grow in a broader range of temperatures than any of its species in the cross. I believe that a hybrid mus adapt to newer environmental conditions since its a cross over of two populations experiencing different growing conditions. Thus a hybrid must be able to adapt to its new environment and survive or die. here is an example of a hybrid where many of its components are highland, yet this grows profusely in a warm climate.
N. lowii x (spathulata x maxima)
And (stenophylla x lowii) x (Rokko x veitchii h/l)
N. sibuyanensis x truncata
This is an example of a highland crossed by a lowland and its progeny grows like a weed!
Continually trying to prove myself wrong regarding growing "highlanders" in lowland conditions.

Here is my N. boschiana plant. Its seems to doing well so far.
I have since learned from highland growers that N. boschiana is actually an intermediate grower. That it doesn't do well too cold, but better in a warmer climate.
Mine actually grows in intermittent light in a loose mix of bark, RWSC and perlite. It is in a mesh pot hanging for best air-drying and water release. I got mine originally from TP and it resisted change for a long time, then all of a sudden, its non-stop pitcher producer! M

This thread should be renamed "greenhouse growers and ultra highland growers"
I have difficulties with N. villosa, macrophylla (but mines do grow and pitcher), and the Kinabalu form of N. lowii. N. aristolochioides is also a bit delicate for me. But N. maxima, eymae, fusca, veitchii, copelandii, h/l truncata, sanguinea, stenophylla, spectabilis, and so forth do rather well in my warmer climate.
Does anyone else find these to grow well in your WARM climate?
I have a lot of hybrids that do well here in Bangkok such as truncata x lowii , truncata x aristolo , ventricosa x macfarlanei or even eymae x veitchii. I'm now thinking of trying macrophylla. Hey Michael,how is macrophylla in your area? In your opinion,is it possible to try it in such a WARM (sometimes HOT) climate like Bangkok?
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.

etiennecancio: perhaps we can try to revitalize the old forums? i always found them to be much more convenient than facebook groups at least hah

vidyut: hey mylesg. glad to hear that. Love this forum. Facebook can't organize knowledge like this. Will participate as much as I can.

vidyut: Photobucket has ruined this place and many other forum archives with years and years of photos worth referencing now blurred. Priceless information hostage to services once free, begging for adoption, arbitrarily monetized.
