That was me. Remember I am in Southern Calif, so I my get more light
during the year. This Nepenthes is just sitting on a bookcase next to the
window. It is planted in a mixture of peat and vermiculite with a covering
of dry sphagnum. There is also a fern going in the smae pot which
"spntaneously" appeared (I didn't plant it). The Nepenthes was beun (year
ago) in terrarium, and I moved it into my office about 3-4 years ago. It
also receives some light from the fluorescent fixtures in the office.

I usually get a continuous growth of pitchers throughout the year, though
they grow more slowly and there are fewer during the Winter.

The office is not particulary humid and it can get down to about 65 degrees
F during the Winter.

I'd be happy to answer any more questions!
