I am getting a nepenthes maxima x tenuis in the mail this week and was wondering if there are any specific care instructions. This is my first nepenthes.

I imagine you would keep just like any other highland Nepenthes hybrid. Lots of light, decent humidity (I'd go at least 50% for good pitchering, since it is a hybrid it is probably a little more tolerant, however). Temps like other highland plants, though since it has maxima in it, it could probably take slightly warmer temps.

I will try to keep the humidity up. Is it safe to spray the pitcherlings with water for humidity?
