An insect eating (carnivorous) pitcher plant, Nepenthes ampullaria x (spathulata x gymnamphora) is growing on our windowsill in upstate New York with no special treatment now for about a month. Temperatures during the day are about 70 F and nights in the low 60’s. The relative humidity fluctuates but is typically around 50%. We make sure the media doesn’t dry out and it gets bright light from an east facing window, and the occasional misting.

Make sure to use distilled water or rain water! Happy Holidays and happy growing everyone!
