N. murudensis Growing Information:
Compared to other ultra-highland nepenthes, this species has proven to be relatively easy to grow. As with most of our plants, we grow a few side by side in slighly different conditions to find what works best.
The batch of N. murudensis we are working with seems to require higher humidities but has much more flexibility when it comes to temperatures. Ultra-highland conditions are by no means a requirement. In fact the plants which are growing the fastest are actually kept in slightly warm highland temperatures, accompanied with higher humidities.
The following conditions have worked really well :
Daily High Temperatures of 76-82 degrees
Daily Low Temperatures of 55-66 degrees
Daily Humidity of 78-90%
Nightly Humidity of 85-99%
