Hi the plant is a low land and will not do any good in a high land conditions, the Nepenthes x kuchingensis ,is a plant that comes from Kuching area in Sarawak Borneo , seen them in the wild , great plants , but very difficult to grow unless you give it the right conditions, look up kuching on Googel look for weather over 12 months and you will see the temps and humidity you must maintain for this to grow well , good luck if you need any more info let me know message me as i am not on a lot now days
