... and N. madagascariensis - what kind of N. is the
> latter? Is it likely to be growable?

N. madagascariensis is one of the lowland types. In nature it grows in
swamps without shade (=It needs much light and warm temparature).
It's surely none of the easier Nepenthes as it often suffers from
fungal diseases which cause brown or red spotson the leaves not
only in my collection. In fact it's the only Nepenthes which seems to
be readily attacked by fungi.
