They grow anywhere from hot, sticky jungles to chill mountain tops high above the clouds. Though Nepenthes were once thought to be difficult to grow, this is far from the truth.

This plant prefers intermediate conditions.  It should be kept between 80-85F  in the day and could benefit from cooler nights.  Nepenthes can acclimate to lower humidity levels, although the best results will be seen with a relative humidity range between 75-80%. Bright, indirect light and pure water.
