Mine is putting out 3 growth points after cutting it back, but no pitcher leaves yet...

If your dyeriana goes south I got you covered on a cutting no problem. One of the vines is touching the ceiling so I could could one for you.
Michael, are all those photos from the one plant I sent you or did you get other cuttings from some other place?
I'm moved a cutting outdoors to grow this summer. I'm going to see how well it can do in outdoor conditions. I have a feeling that this plant can grow as an intermediate and maybe a highlander(at least not die) for a while. That would be great since the leaves are so huge!

Yeah, I'm going to watch it carefully during those times. I can easily move it indoors while it is still small. Around fall I want to see how it reacts to outdoor conditions. I'm aware of temperature problems with lowlanders, but humidity is something else I'm experimenting with. If dyeriana can deal with outdoor temps for most of the year, maybe other lowland hybrids can as well. I have ventricosa x ampullaria outdoors to see how that hybrid does. Maybe other ones and even some EP crosses might do well as intermediates too.

It's outdoors now. It will do fine until around Novemeber. Long exposure over time to cool nights gets the lowlanders. They can take initial drops into the low 40's but continual exposure to 40 degree nights really makes them slow down and eventually perish. If this works for me, I'll be able to cut back the dyeriana tannenbaum and induce basal shoots.
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.

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.
