Lowland Tropical Pitcher Plants (Nepenthes)

Nepenthes ampullaria

Lowland Nepenthes are species that grow below 3,000 feet.  They experience hot days, warm nights and continuous, high humidity.  Grow these plants in a sunny windowsill, terrarium or greenhouse where nighttime temperatures never drop below 70 degrees.  Many of the Lowland species are well known for their unusual features like the fluttery wings of Nepenthes rafflesiana and Nepenthes ampullaria or the infamous fangs of Nepenthes bicalcarata.
