ok, so sounds like i may have better luck with this species than the others i've tried. ive had highlands and altho they did good, they wasnt GREAT. i plan on growing inside. nepenthes for some reason are EXCELLENT for elimination of house flys/gnats. figured they may get one or two here or there, but i was bug free when they were growing in the house, i noticed pictures with flys, gnats, spiders, all sorts of bugs that i didnt even know were in the house.
my windows do not get "direct" sunlight but for a couple hours a day. the rest is kind of a shaded day of good light. i even built a dome over my last ones trying to help them and no luck really. from reading, i think lowland actually might grow better.
as far as size, im not concerned, the bigger the better, but right now its small.
the conditions u mentioned that they thrive well in will perfect.
cant wait for it to grow and grow its first pitchers for me. its got one that it came with, and another forming if it dont die from shipping shock. AND, im ready to see some "fangs" lol
