I have been growing one N. northiana for awhile now with great success.
I bought as a small tissue cultured specimen from Andreas Wistuba, and
have been growing it under flourescent lights in a very humid, heated (70F
to 85F) terrarium with other lowland Nepenthes (ampullaria, rafflesiana, x
hookeriana, gracilis). The soil medium was inspired by information given
me by Phil Mann, and consists of WELL-washed coral gravel (my substitute
for limestone gravel) topped with one inch of a mixture of fine grade
orchid bark, and a commercial ground orchid bark/sand mixture sold here in
California for orchids. I water it from above every 1 to 2 weeks.
It has been growing very well since I planted it in this arrangement,
but I give all the credit to Phil Mann and his very helpful advice. I hope
