Obviously, Jebb & Cheek have mistaken the statement "about 100 m from
(...) towards (...)" (in the Bahasa Indonesian text by Tamin &
Hotta) for an altitude. To the best of my knowledge, _N. adnata_ has
so far never been observed below 700 m alt in the wild. The label on
the holotype specimen states "ca. 1000 m", which is probably the
source of the upper limit given by Jebb & Cheek. I would not call _N.
adnata_ a lowland species.
The N. adnata that I found in the wild was at 500m and grows well in a
hothouse. It grows in sandstone cliff areas that only get to about 1000m
at the most.
